when unchecking "Use default Site Search parameters" in site setting, the checkbox is set again after opening the site properties.
It doesn't set the property correct, so it is always using the default Site Search Parameters
This is the case in piwik 3.0.4
Did you set a custom parameter for query or category? If non of those are set it automatically resets to default site search params.
I noticed this is the case.
Maybe we need to show this in UI, instead of automatically resetting to default.
In my case I want to use sitesearch reports, but not by using the URL parameters. I use trackSiteSearch in custom tagging.
My workaround is setting both parameters for query and category to a bogus value.
Ok. That's an use case we didn't think of yet.
I post a question on the forum (https://forum.piwik.org/t/unable-to-track-site-search/25379).
@sgiehl : Can you explain what is the needeed configuration to use trackSiteSearch rather default url tracking ?
@RMastop : Can you explain what is your workaround ?
thanks in advance
