    When enabled, there is no place for individual blogs to configure their analytics.

    I'm planning on adding full multi site support in either 4.1 or 4.2, so should be there somewhere in the coming months.

    Hi Joost - any update whether this plugin works with a multi-site install to track multiple domains? Is it possible to simply setup a new profile for each subdomain?

    Cheers? - dale

    Hey Dale, you can just activate it on each blog and make a new profile for each subdomain yeah, there's no MultiSite specific code yet though, unfortunately.

    I'm just checking in, too. I've just started work on a new multisite group of sites. I was delighted when I discovered that they're using this plugin and headed for the advanced configuration in the hope that if anyone was doing multi-site well, it would be you.

    Sadly, there's nothing there yet.

    What would be really, really nice would be to be able to go the whole way and have two sets of GATC, one 'per-site' and one 'rolled up' for all the sites.

    But perhaps that is going to far? I'd be happy with a consistent 'best practice' set of pre-build configuration options to hand-hold individual site admins through the process.

    At the moment, it looks like I'm going to rely on filtered profiles based on the GA host data. I think it would be nicer to avoid those filters.

    This might be helpful: According to Google Code, the best way to track subdomains is by setting up a master profile and using the same profile id for all of the subdomains. Check the specs here:

    Just tried this and it still doesn't work with multisite. Each site needs to be authenticated, but that can only be done by a super admin. And in my case, the super admin doesn't have (and doesn't want) access to the end user's GA account.

    Would also love to hear an update. I just found the hard way that this doesn't work on a Network (multisite): http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-google-analytics-for-wordpress-network-activate

    @progresst: Ultimate Google Analytics has not been updated in over 3 years: http://www.oratransplant.nl/uga/#versions. Not sure I'd trust it for production use.

    Would also love to see Multisite support in a future release :)

    Same here, Multisite support would be huge.

    It would be best accompanied by a tutorial explaining the default set-up, including on Google Analytic's end, as results can vary depending on these settings.

    p.s. Seems to me the Async plugin has it figured out already. I just feel safer in your hands =P

    Thanks for some great plugins Joost!

    I've been using this plugin with my multisite setup for a while, allowing individual users to track their sites with individual tracking codes. I found the immediate issue with getting the options page to appear was that it was looking for a capability that single installation WordPress admins have (edit_users) but that multisite WordPress admins do not. (Superadmins, however, do).

    This is similar to an issue I've seen with themes, where it checked for the "edit_theme" capability, which single install administrators have, but again, which multisite administrators don't. In that case, checking for the capability "edit_theme_options" did the trick, because that's something that all multisite admins should have. I'm not sure what the equivalent would be for plugins.

    We'd also like to see more multisite support

    your plugin is the best so we want to keep it active instead of moving to a multi-site specific plugin with less features...

    any news yet Joost?
