Matomo issue- it directs the journal login to matomo admin url

Hi all,
I installed Matomo via Softaculous without installing the Piwik plugin. The journal is using the latest Ojs version. I installed the tracking code in Custom Tags and the matomo widget in indexJournal.tpl to display visitors graph and maps. The Matomo is working but it always directs the journal web login to matomo admin url. If I am not mistaken, this issue was ever discussed but I could not find the old post after search in the forum.


Hi @kawahyu,

I don’t think this is anything to do with OJS, unfortunately – I suspect Matomo’s installation is intervening before the login page gets sent to OJS, e.g. via a .htaccess file. You’d have to check on a Matomo-related forum to see how to avoid that.
