Often Matomo users who haven't yet setup Cron + Disable browser trigger archiving, index

It would be great to link from this message to the FAQ that explains this issue: https://matomo.org/faq/troubleshooting/faq_19489/

Maybe with append a text like <a href='https://matomo.org/faq/troubleshooting/faq_19489/'>See the steps to resolve this issue in the FAQ</a>..


  • we don't want this extra text to be added on cloud. maybe we could link to the FAQ only when enable_general_settings_admin=1 or enable_plugins_admin=1
  • we will soon improve the FAQ at https://matomo.org/faq/troubleshooting/faq_19489/ and make it more clear / better

There seems to be something already here:


Also, I have trouble reproducing this error. Could you give me an example URL fragment?

you can apply below patch and then go to Behavior -> Page URLs in the reporting menu. It will show the error. There are few other places where this error message is shown but I think that's maybe the most important one @mattab ?

@geekdenz I'm not quite sure to which file/place you refer this to?

If it's about the one you mentioned in chat then we wouldn't show it twice
