Allow to define the time to look back to define a returning visitor #3695

This is based on following thread,99724

When importing log data, entries do not have the visitor ID passed from 1st party cookie. Detecting returning visitors is done via a sql lookup trying to match visitors in the past. Piwik only looks back visit_standard_length secnods by default. We could add a new config setting to force piwik to detect returning visitors better.


Clarified scope/ solution


Guess this one can be closed as window_look_back_for_visitor setting resolved the problem.
