Hans, most 'average' users dont think the way programmers like you do. ;-)
Where do you think the expression 'fool proof' comes from? 8-)
One rule should be: there must be no room for wild guesses or misinterpretation.

In this case I would write under the i-button something like: "e.g. /piwik/ or the complete path to piwik"
And: "fill in 1 if you have only one website to measure".

And even then there will be people like me that fill in 0 or 2. :lol:

How much clearer can that be? OK, maybe it's better that the default is 1 so most users are lucky and get it right without doing anything... -1 was supposed to be a way-off value ;-)

Hans, I believe there is a bug in the extension after all - I've tried to use the absolute path to my piwik installation (with two slashes after the "http:"), and it still shows only one slash in the source code:

Code: Select all
 <!-- Piwik -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http:/der-privatanleger.de/piwik/piwik.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
        try {
            var piwikTracker = Piwik.getTracker("http:/der-privatanleger.de/piwik/piwik.php", 1);
        } catch( err ) {}
    <!-- End Piwik Tag -->

I've changed it to a relative path now, and it seems to work though. :)

Btw.: What does the following comment mean?

Code: Select all

You're right there was a stupid bug (they normally are) related to absolute paths - fixed in revision 3295.

Regarding your "Btw" - use the forum search.
