    Hi Samuel
    Just tried it I did put it before the closure is that right? Also found out that my site id was 1 on the plugin as Piwik had affected 2 to the site I monitored as I don't seem to be able to change it in Piwik, I did the change in the plugin. Guess it's gonna make a difference smile

    Hi Samuel
    Doesn't work for me and my pages are still recorded in Piwik in moodle style:
    I wonder if this plugin works at all and why it wouldn't and no developper seems to be keen to answer.
    Of course I know it's a free service but silence is rude, anyway, ain't it?

    Hi Josick,

    Maybe you have not enabled the clean url setting. And please don't say it's rude if I do not answer you fast enough.

    Ok sorry but at least, it got me an answer smile.
    And the clean url setting is enabled so how do I check if that plugin works or not?

    I did let Piwik on for a few hours without the plugin and for a few hours with it. I do not see the slightest difference.
    Pages are annouced similarly:
    In the visitor's log they look in both case laike this:
    Cours : Induction Standard
    In the pages tree: moodle like
    in the page title: plain text, I insist, with or without the plugin on.
    I would very much like to know what is supposed to be different with the plugin on and what is its use?

    Hi Bas & David,
    Does it work on moodle 2.8 or newer version? I let visitors self register and open my site to everyone that's why I need that plugin.
    Love it,

    Hi there.

    Yes I do think it works okay for 2.8 and 2.9. But I'll plan some time to create new versions for these releases soon.

    Does this plugin support v2.9.x? As of this comment, the highest version supported is v2.7. Thank you.

    Oops, my bad, I didn't realised William already reported it working for v2.9... I had thought the comments run reverse chronologically with the latest comment up top. smile

    Hi, I'm currently running a Moodle 2.9.3+ site and planning to update it to Moodle 3 or 3.1 (sometime in the future), and i would love to have your plugin installed. I do, however, have a question: have you tested in a Moodle 3+ environment?

    Hi Brandon,

    Yes, I have used it on Moodle 3.0 and it's still working!
