Matomo (Piwik) is a platform which you can extend and customise to your needs with Plugins. To get started installing a plugin, login as a Super User. In the top menu, click “Administration”. In the left menu click “Marketplace”. There are a few ways to install a plugin in Matomo:
Install a new plugin using the Marketplace: on the Marketplace page you can browse existing plugins, if you want to install one of those plugins, click on “Install” button.
Upload a Plugin ZIP file to Matomo (Piwik): if you were given the ZIP file of a plugin, you will need to upload it to Matomo. To do so, login to Matomo as a Super User, click on Settings and then on the “Marketplace” page, click on “upload a zip file”. Note: the first time you want to upload a custom plugin you will activate this feature once by editing your config/config.ini.php file and below the category
Install a new plugin manually: this last technique only works if you have direct access to the Matomo (Piwik) server. Uncompress the Plugin zip file that you wish to install in Matomo. This should create a directory with the name of the plugin. Copy this uncompressed folder into your server in the directory path/to/piwik/plugins/.
By default, when you install a plugin it is not activated. To activate a plugin, go to the “Plugins” page in Administration and click “Activate” next to the plugin name.
