Artiss README Parser: README file could not be found or is malformed - Super Simple Google Analytics
Sorry to bother you with this, but I’ve activated this plugin, and when I view the source code, I get this:
Plugin: Super Simple Google Analytics
Plugin URL: Super Simple Google AnalyticsYou’ve chosen to prevent the tracking code from being inserted on
pages viewed by logged-in administrators.
You can re-enable the insertion of the tracking code on all pages
for all users by going to Settings > Google Analytics on the Dashboard
I’m no developer I’m afraid, and have no idea what to do here, can you please offer some advice?
Thanks so much in advance,
No problem Adam,
When you log in to the WordPress Dashboard (the backend where you write posts and such that the public can’t see), there is a tab on the left side titled “Settings”. Under that tab there should be a sub-menu item titled “Google Analytics”. It’s the settings page where you had to input your Google Analytics ID.
There should be a box titled “Track administrator hits?” It is unchecked by default. If you check this, than the code will be inserted on pages even when viewed by YOU when you are logged in as the administrator. If you want this to happen, check the box. Otherwise, if you logout of your WordPress account and check the source again, the regular tracking code should be there.
This option just exists so administrators aren’t counting their own visits. I hope this clears up the problem for you, if not, please let me know.
It’s also worth pointing out that if you are using a page caching plugin you won’t see the tracking code in the page source code until the cache is updated. So clear the cache before looking at the source code.
Thank You for all that you Do ..
.trying out super simple Google Analytics 1.7
Glad you like it!
Ok so after you add your tracking code to the ‘Settings’ page – what happens next?
- Do you not need to insert the code into every individual page of your site?
- The text on my Editor page looks different to yours, so still not sure what to paste in?
- Also how would you track all of the data – would you need to log back into your Google Analytics site or would the data be retained in your wordpress dashboard?
Sorry if these questions are silly but I’m completely new to this.
You don’t have to paste anything in an editor, that screenshot is just of a page’s source code to show that the tracking code is inserted.
All you do is:
That’s it! It will take about a day for a new Analytics account to start reporting data. You can go to “View Source” in your browser to verify the tracking code is there, but that’s not necessary.
Hope this Helps
how google analytics help me to check my daily visitors on my site please reply fast
Is it best to place the google analytics before the header or before the body? What’s advantages of both?
Head makes sure the code is loaded, but may slow down your site a touch. Personally, I’d recommend putting it at the end of the body tag.
I set the plugin two days ago and I made everything that you wrote, but I can’t see “Google Analytics” code on pages of my site.
Please help me.
ohh, sorry:) I forgot to add between tags this line “wp_head()” in my template. The plugin works great.
Glad you worked it out
Hi, I followed your settings yesterday to set up analytics for my site, How would I check the code has been inserted in my site,? where would I look for it?
Just wait 24 hours and see if you’ve got stats!
I used the Super Simple Google Analytics plugin & entered my GA tracking code. Upon viewing the page source I can see the code is there, however the old code is there as well. The new one is “UA-35232352-1″
Here is what I am seeing. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
Plugin: Super Simple Google Analytics
Plugin URL: Super Simple Google Analytics
window.google_analytics_uacct = "UA-35232352-1";
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script'); s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’); s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
I can’t really help you with this specifically, sorry buddy. I can tell you that most likely your Analytics code is either hard coded into your theme (probably the header.php file), of you have another Analytics plugin running along side this one.
All I can tell you with certainty is that my plugin is working. If you have the capability, do a search for the old code in the wp-content directory of the site. Should reveal the problem either way.
Hi, I just tested your plugin and I’ve got a question for you :
My web shop is “www.example.com”, and I’ve got also a WordPress blog at “blog.example.com”
On GA, I recorded my domain and ticked the option “track subdomains”. When I activated this option, the script given by GA include some new arguments :
These arguments are not present in your plugin. How to integrate this new arguments ?
One more question, where your plugin insert the GA script ? I cannot find it in the php pages of my theme
Thanks in adavnce
As far as where the code inserts: it depends which insert option you’ve chosen for the plugin:
I just installed on http://www.volunteeringinnepal.org/ and it is working very well.
Well, it “simply” doesn’t work.
The google analytics page simply won’t load and tells me that:
“Status: Tracking Not Installed
Last checked: Dec 11, 2012 2:42:08 PM PST
The Google Analytics tracking code has not been detected on your website’s home page. For Analytics to function, you or your web administrator must add the code to each page of your website. “
And yes, I entered the correct number. Checked it 3 times.
maybe a different name would be appropriate, as this plugin is clearly not for beginners.
…Did you check the option “Insert tracking code?“?
Insert tracking code?
The other 50,000 beginners using it don’t seem to be having any problems.
This works so much better than the one I was using called “Simple Google Analytics”…could never get that one to work right, but the “super-simple-google-analytics” worked right away.
Our site has one page that gets a lot of traffic and swamps all other analytics data. This tends to skew all graphics, bounce rate, etc towards the one page. Is there a way to turn off the Analytics code for a single page. This is what we did when our site was hand coded (thank goodness we are not doing that anymore).
I can make you a special version where you can disable tracking of individual posts or pages (probably using a custom field), but this is too complicated to be included in the default version. My prices are very reasonable if you want me to whip this up for you, let me know, email@example.com
http://www.classipresstheme.com run the simple effective plugin,thanks!
Hi – I just installed your plugin today. When I look at my GA tracking info page, it says “Tracking Code Not Installed”. Do I just have to wait the 24 hours? I did add my GA tracking ID # and checked the insert tracking code box.
DId I do anything wrong?
Give Google some time to respider your page, tracking should begin within 24 hours.
What is the function of the first option (in red) “insert tracking code” ?
Its just a way to enable or disable tracking on all pages. I did it so you can temporarily disable tracking if you need to, or so you can mess around with the settings before you make the code live. I suppose its a little unnecessary in retrospect.
I added google analytics to my site and nothing is happening. I don’t see any activity whether negative or positive. Help!
Did you input your adsense id and check the box on the settings page to turn it on? If so, just wait a few hours.
What is the option:
Track integrated AdSense data?
Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array for-wordpress/admin/class-admin.php on line 342
The plugin has been working fine for several months, and now I’m getting this error message:
Google Analytics for WordPress Configuration
Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/google-analytics-for-wordpress/admin/class-admin.php on line 342
Any idea what this is?
Thank you for the awesome plugin. Does the plugin hard code the UA Tracking code in some file? What file is the UA tracking code inserted? I don’t see it in the footer/header file or any of the page templates files.
Thanks for providing this great plugin!
Have installed plugin through WordPress, ticked insert tracking code, entered my google analytics number, clicked before body, clicked track integrated adsense data.
However after saving changes the UA code is not found in my view source code on the home page or any other page?
Any help would be much appreciated
My blog is running this plugin for over a year without problems, nice and easy one! But I’m a bit confused with some stats GAnalytics is giving me regarding ‘new visitors’ and ‘time spent in the blog’, they are not normal. Then, I was wondering if changing the tracking code from ‘before tag’ (current option) to ‘before tag’ has any known impact or consequences.
If you’ve got some experience about what this change implies after a year, I would appreciate any hints on this.
Thanks and regards,
Is it possible to add more than one Google Analytics account number?
I installed this plugin a cople of days ago (I am not a computer progrmmer, hence I used you tube vids to do it). Anyway its been a couple of days now and I dont think its working. When I log into google analytics, everything still says 0. No data at all? I have done what it says above and inputted the google UA number. Everything is switched on/activiated on the settings page so im a bit miffed!
Any suggestions on how to edit the code for Google Analytics Display / Rmarketing advertising? I tried to modify the single line of code in WordPress as recommended by Google (see link) without success: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2444872.
just install your plugin, but is not counting , in google analytics ?
Hi, Analytics is asking if I want to “Upgrade to Universal Analytics”? Should I do that? does this plugin work with it? I’ve got at least 1 client claiming it’s not properly tracking hits/visits/etc. Trying to figure out what’s going on.
How do I get into my Analytics account?
I can’t find it anywhere.
You need to create google account, then go here.
Does this plugin support Universal Analytics? If not, can it be added? Seems to work fine for me still, but the plugin page says it’s compatible up to 3.5, while 3.9 is the current version.
Thanks for this nice plugin! I am using it in my website.
While I found some difference between the generated code by this plugin and the code I got from Google, and the code by Google has more one field called domain:
Code from Google:
ga(\’create\’, \’UA-%1$s-%2$s\’, \’domain-name\’);
So I changed your plugin to the new code and add a field on setting page in order to input the domain name, finally it looks like:
ga(\’create\’, \’UA-%1$s-%2$s\’, \’%3$s\’);
I have made a patch for my changes and if you’d like to use please let me know where I can upload it or just reply a mail for me.
