Widget, display visitors with javascript disabled


Is there a widget in piwik which shows how many visitors have javascript disabled or enabled? I thought I would find it in the plugin list. Is the cookie capability tracked only via javascript and not via image tracking? So then this would be equal to browser with javascript support (without IE)?

It’s very hard to google this, because the results only show how to add non javascript tracking to piwik.

Thanks, but the answer from the FAQ is not the one I’m looking for.
Perhaps I made my question not clear enough.

I know that piwik can track with javascript and without javascript (image).
Can the piwik backend distinguish if somebody was tracked with javascript or with an image?
I looked a bit at the source code and in the database, but doesn’t found anything which makes
clear if a hit/visit was tracked by javascript or by the image.

I see many config_* columns in the “piwik_log_visit” table but not anything about javascript or image.
In the “piwik_log_link_visit_action” I don’t found anything either.

I want to know how many clients have disabled javascript in their browser (without bots).
Am I overlooking something? Or is that not possible with piwik.

regards yves

to distinguish between Javascript request VS Image request (via Tracking API - Analytics Platform - Matomo ) then you must use Custom variables for your visit, and you will see the count for each type


thanks, thats exactly what I was looking for
