Adding Google Analytics? (3 posts)

    I am very new to WordPress AND Google Analytics. I am trying to add their tracking code to my blog. I have read in other posts this code needs to go in the header.php (or some people say footer.php) of my theme. I have tried several times to paste this code, however it won't save. There is a message below the code saying...'You need to make this file writable before you can save your changes. See the Codex for more information.' When I click on the link, it is too technical for me. I have no clue what they are talking about or where to find these Permission Codes. Does anyone have any help? Thanks!

    I'd recommend using the plugin named "Google Analyticator". It makes it easy to insert your Google Analytics code without having to worry about editing files. Just do a search for plugins in your WordPress Dashboard, install it, activate it, and follow the instructions it gives.

    Thanks JPry. I tried that too and it still doesn't work. I think I'll uninstall the plugin and try it again. Thanks for responding.
