Currently only js enabled clients are tracked by the proxy mode, adding this feature would prove very useful, especially when tracking bots.
The same proxy file could be loaded in the noscript block, which would return a gif by itself and feed the data to the main piwik api in the background.
<noscript><p><img src="piwik_proxy.php?idsite=1&rec=1&bots=1" style="border:0" alt="" /></p></noscript>
I think this should work fine already, have you tried it?
@mattab Sorry, the proxy mode description confused me a little.
<noscript> part of the code at the end is removed, since it is not currently used by Piwik, and it contains the (secret) Piwik URL which you want to hide"
It suggests that the noscript tag should not be used in proxy mode, this text may need updating.
In any case, i have tried it now and loading the proxy file in the noscript tag works as expected.
Thanks for your response.
