    I was wondering if this plugin would work with any of the child themes to Genesis. I use their lifestyle theme alot on my differing sites and would like to use your plugin to reduce the bounce rate.

    Also in your experience, which is/are the best themes which work with your plugin?

    Hi McIver,

    I believe there is a call to wp_footer in the Genesis Framework so it should work.

    But you can test it easily. Just install the plugin, go to the source of one of your pages and look at the very bottom if you can see this line
    <!--End Real Time on Site and Bounce Rate -->
    When it's there, the plugin works (assuming the Google Analytics code is also present).

    Which theme you use doesn't matter. The plugin just let Analytics know every 10 seconds whether someone is still on the page or not. The theme must have wp_footer() though.

    I see the source on the pages :), but you mention that Google analytics code needs to be present as well. I use a plugin which just uses my Analytics ID but not the code itself. Should I use a plugin where it inserts the actual script for Analytics?

    No I think the plugin adds the code nicely where it suppose to be. You should be able to see the Analytics code as well in the source code, either at the top or bottom part.

    My code should be after the Analytics code for it to work properly.

    Thanks for the support Okoth1, I've got it running on a couple of sites and everything is where it's suppose to be when I look at the source code. I'll let it run for a few days and see how much it can lower my bounce rate :).
