We've been trying to use the 1x1 pixel to track the success of our email campaign (javascript is not available in most email clients):

<img src="http://.../piwik.php?idsite=6" style="border:0" alt="" />

but this didn't work. Looking at the source code we found out the parameter rec is necessary:

<img src="http://.../piwik.php?idsite=6**&rec=1**" style="border:0" alt="" />

However, this parameter is missing in the tracking code displayed in the control panel (Settings -> Websites -> show tracking tags).

The tracking code displayed in "Settings | Websites" is intended for JavaScript-enabled browsers. If we added "&rec=1", users would get a lot of false hits from bots (discussed in #365, #653, ...)

Using the pixel image tracker is already documented here: http://piwik.org/docs/tracking-api/

  • pixel is in source code (with &rec=1)
  • apache logfile shows the request
  • but nothing happens in the database
