When I'm passing the campaign parameter as second parameter, it is not correctly detected. Thus, after setting
campaign_var_name = "cm"
in config.ini.php, the following doesn't generate a campaign record:
while this one works:
especially the part where it explains that only the first keyword/campaign will be recorded as referer; can you please double check that you were not testing this way?
Hi, there. I checked again. The visitors are all coming with URLs of the type
http://my.test.domain/page?q=keyword&cm=campaignname and the visits and urls are correctly recorded (they appear in the "page" reports, including the "q" and "cm" parameters), but the campaign names are never recorded.
When I visit the URL
http://my.test.domain/page?cm=testcampaign instead, the campaign is recorded and appears in the administration interface.
I still think the different behaviour depends on the campaign parameter appearing as the first one or not. Could anyone check whether this is the case?
did you check with at least 30 minutes between each test? if yes we shall reopen and fix this issue
Hi. We did some extensive testing and we are using piwik on a production website receiving lots of daily visits of the form !http://my.test.domain/page?q=keyword&cm=campaignname
Test visits where we use cm as first parameter are recorded, the ones with cm as second parameter are not. We installed the latest version yesterday and the issue seems to be still there.
re-opening for investigation
By visual inspection of the code: piwik.js already escapes the url=XXX; in Tracker/Visit.php, getReferrerInformation() calls getRequestVar('url') which results in the value being sanitized. The result is confusing parse_url().
(In ) fix #697 - some campaigns not being tracked
