Naver as referer and search engine, not properly counted or shown #2635

we are using piwik to monitor not only our German pages but also our Korean website

Using the mobile app on iOS and Android, I realized, that the search engine naver is not properly counted and shown as referrer in the web front end.

The db shows in table "log_visit" attribute "referer_url" several entries (count > 10) like ""

but Naver is only counted once in "search engines" and the referer is marked as "direct entry" in the live log.

Could this be a bug or where do I have to fix our misconfiguration?

Are you using standard Piwik JS code?

can you please copy and paste here the content of "referer_url" from the table piwik_log_visit, as it appears in phpmyadmin?


Yes, we are using standard code.

Here are some examples

Anything else needed?


Fixed by r5121, r5122

Probably we should decode only when the referrer is Naver (in the php logic)?

(In [5606]) Refs #2635 It seems that Never detection works - please reopen if you still experience issues with it after 1.7
