Release: ProcessPiwikAnalytics


Recommended Posts

Hey Friends of Webanalytics,

I've finished the main work on porting Wanzes GA into a PiwikAnalytics Module.
Just uploaded it to the modules directory. 

It does pretty much the same like GAModule

So take a look at the module post: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/1609-processgoogleanalytics/

You could download the module in the directory or directly from my site: http://misterui.de/site/assets/files/1087/piwikanalytics.zip

yay! this is awesome.

couple of issues:

1.) comming soon (spelling is coming)

2.) is there any way to disable the module from showing any site IDs besides the one you enter? RIght now it shows all of the piwik sites, but i would only want to show the specified site, such as '6' (and not 1 • 2 • 3 • 4 • 5 • etc..)

Thanks for the module. 

I've got a problem with the data fetched from Piwik.


My visitors don't stay on the site for 3 days. The value should be (looking on the piwik panel) around 2 minutes. Maybe this bug is caused by the following lines in the .module file:

            case 'avg_time_on_site':
              $visitTime = $this->piwik->getSumVisitsLengthPretty();
              $value = $visitTime['value'];

Hi Luis -

wondering if the PW piwik view could take into account child pages, when there are character delimiters in the page title; for example we have a slash in 3 page titles, and in the piwik, it shows those all as children of the text before the slash; in the PW piwik it only shoes the parent, but doesn't open up to show the children...

Thank you Fenton. :)

@Marc: I´m really sorry for my late response, looks to me like I have to rework the output in the foreach loop to let it look like the Piwik way. 

Maybe you could take a look into the Git Repo, I hardly could find time.

Hi Luis,

just realized that under "Demographics", entries for countries & cities are "unknown", although in my piwik dashboard different countries are displayed correctly ...any ideas?

thanks a lot, cheers, j

If you add this line at the end of the array in public static function getModuleInfo() { 

'permission' => 'page-view' 

it will give your other users access. You could even give it a new custom permission, like: 

'permission' => 'analytics-view' 

then create that permission and assign it to the role of the users you want to allow access to. Of course these options are hacking the module core code and so hopefully Luis will reply soon with something along these lines. Hope that helps in the meantime.

thank you adrian for providing support. 

I can only apologise, I hardly find time to update or work on my published modules. However, they are on Git, so you easily could fork them or do a commit.


EDIT: The module now needs permission 'analytics-view'

This is not a question about the module specifically but if you're using Piwik perhaps you'll know something about the problems I ran into today.

I had no luck with Piwik for some reason. It seemed to install okay, I found the info I needed for this module's settings and put the Piwik generated tracking JS on my pages but after visiting a few pages nothing was getting added to the Piwik database so there was nothing to report.

That's when I stumbled upon an issue with Piwik and eAccelerator. In the Piwik admin there's a page for Diagnostics where it says "You are using the PHP accelerator & optimizer eAccelerator which is known to be not compatible with Piwik. We have disabled eAccelerator, which might affect the performance of Piwik. Read the related ticket for more information and how to fix this problem." Really?! In what context?

I'm using PHP5.4 and eAccelerator. The hosting company suggested eAccelerator over APC and eAccelerator's home page says it is compatible with 5.4 but as recently as 5 weeks ago Piwik is saying "eaccelerator is not supported anymore and Piwik is not compatible with it." Haven't found much in the web about this. Any clues?

Hi Luis, great module! Thank you much!

I see a small display glitch using PW 2.5 and the standard admin theme. 

The tabs are half overlapping this text string:

Data from Site ID: 1

Also, instead of SideID, which is meaningless to my client, can this instead output the site name for that ID from the PIWIK panel?

@ceberlin, you can solve this very easy in source: /public_html/site/modules/ProcessPiwikAnalytics/ProcessPiwikAnalytics.css

add this code:

#content .container > form, #content .container > .ui-helper-clearfix > form {
    top: 30px !important;

Thank you Guenter55 - much appreciated.

I personally prefer not to alter pw-core or module code myself (which would be overwritten with any next update) but to report this here so it get fixed for everyone, eventually ...one day ...maybe ;-)

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      A simple fieldtype generating a QR Code from the public URL of the page, and more.
      Using the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase.

      In the field’s Details tab you can change between .gif or .svg formats. If you select .svg you will have the option to directly output the markup instead of a base64 image. SVG is the default.
      You can also change what is used to generate the QR code and even have several sources. The accepted sources (separated by a comma) are: httpUrl, editUrl, or the name of any text/URL/file/image field.
      If LanguageSupport is installed the compatible sources (httpUrl, text field, ...) will return as many QR codes as there are languages. Note however that when outputting on the front-end, only the languages visible to the user will be generated.
      Unformatted value
      When using $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field") it returns an array with the following structure:
      [ [ "label" => string, // label used in the admin "qr" => string, // the qrcode image "source" => string, // the source, as defined in the configuration "text" => string // and the text used to generate the qrcode ], ... ] Formatted value
      The formatted value is an <img>/<svg> (or several right next to each other). There is no other markup.
      Should you need the same markup as in the admin you could use:
      $field = $fields->get("qrcode_field"); $field->type->markupValue($page, $field, $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field")); But it’s a bit cumbersome, plus you need to import the FieldtypeQRCode's css/js. Best is to make your own markup using the unformatted value.
      Static QR code generator
      You can call FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCode to generate any QR code you want. Its arguments are:
      string $text bool $svg Generate the QR code as svg instead of gif ? (default=true) bool $markup If svg, output its markup instead of a base64 ? (default=false) Hooks
      Please have a look at the source code for more details about the hookable functions.
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $page = $event->arguments("page"); $event->return = $page->title; // or could be: $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCodes", function($event) { $qrcodes = $event->return; // keep everything except the QR codes generated from editUrl foreach($qrcodes as $key => &$qrcode) { if($qrcode["source"] === "editUrl") { unset($qrcodes[$key]); } } unset($qrcode); $event->return = $qrcodes; })

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      File Manager for ProcessWire is a module to manager files and folders from the CMS backend. It supports creating, deleting, renaming, packing, unpacking, uploading, downloading and editing of files and folders. The integrated code editor ACE supports highlighting of all common programming languages.

      This module is probably the most powerful module. You might destroy your processwire installation if you don't exactly know what you doing. Be careful and use it at your own risk!
      ACE code editor
      This module uses ACE code editor available from: https://github.com/ajaxorg/ace

      This module uses the JavaScript dragscroll available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability to drag the table horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      PHP File Manager
      This module uses a modified version of PHP File Manager available from: https://github.com/alexantr/filemanager
