New Plugin: WordPress Matomo integration

2020 update: There is now a third Matomo Analytics WordPress plugin available out called Matomo Analytics for WordPress. The difference is that this new plugin installs Matomo Analytics fully in your WordPress. Rather than having a plugin that connects your existing Matomo On-Premise or Matomo Cloud account with WordPress, you get the convenience of having a powerful analytics platform within your WordPress.

WordPress is the most popular blogging software, and the one we use on

Originally there were two WordPress plugins for Matomo:

WP-Matomo Integration (WP-Piwik) is a WordPress plugin created by André Bräkling that integrates Matomo statistics with your WordPress dashboard.

Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik Analytics) created by Jules, a Dutch Matomo user, is a simple plugin to integrate Matomo with your WordPress templates.

The Matomo WordPress integration plugin features are:

  • piwk.php and piwik.js location
  • site ID setting
  • options to control download tracking
  • option to exclude the admin user (probably you)

If you want to participate and make the plugin better, we also have a trac ticket with some ideas.

See the Matomo WordPress plugin page on Jules’ blog
