Open Web Analytics Plugin


This is a basic wordpress plugin for the excellent Open Web Analytics (OWA) tool.
It adds the open web analytics javascript code into every page of your weblog, so
you don’t have to code PHP to add it to your templates.

It is based quite heavily on the Piwik Analytics plugin by Jules Stuifbergen,
which is based heavily on the Google Analytics wordpress plugin by Joost de Valk.

The following options are supported:

  • owa hostname
  • owa path
  • site ID
  • option to control download tracking
  • option to exclude the admin user (probably you)

Please note, this plugin requires a running Open Web Analytics installation somewhere under
your control. It does not include Open Web Analytics itself.
