Visitors Log mismatches Visitors in Real Time


I’m a new Piwik user and have deployed it at We haven’t launched yet, so there is very little traffic (<50 visitors per day).

The problem is that the Visitors Log plugin displays different data from the Visitors in Real-Time plugin. Below is a screencast. Why might this be happening?

The only unusual configuration on the site is that I’ve renamed “piwik.js” to “piwi.js” and “piwik.php” to “piwi.php”, in order to bypass some ad blockers.


The problem is that the Visitors Log display doesn’t default to today! It’s even visible in the screencast - you can see that the realtime widget shows activity form today/right now, while the Visitor Log shows yesterday’s activity by default. IMHO this is a bug.
