Every web page must includes the JS code required for Piwik  as seen below :

<!– Piwik –> <script type=”text/javascript”> var _paq = _paq || []; (function(){ var u=((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://{$PIWIK_URL}/” : “http://{$PIWIK_URL}/”); _paq.push([‘setSiteId’, {$IDSITE}]); _paq.push([‘setTrackerUrl’, u+’piwik.php’]); _paq.push([‘trackPageView’]); _paq.push([‘enableLinkTracking’]); var d=document, g=d.createElement(‘script’), s=d.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; g.type=’text/javascript’; g.defer=true; g.async=true; g.src=u+’piwik.js’; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s); })(); </script> <!– End Piwik Code –>
