Universal Analytics not excluding admin traffic
By ,

Useful plugin, but Google Universal Analytics wasn't correctly adding the line below to my site, for logged-in admins:

ga('set', 'dimensionX', 'admin');

Without this line it is impossible to exclude traffic for logged-in admins (I played with the plugin settings but couldn't fix it).

To fix this, I changed line 1190 in google-analyticator.php:
FROM:: get_option(key_ga_admin) == 'admin'
TO:: get_option(key_ga_admin) == ga_disabled

This matches the functionality of the old Google Analytics and works correctly on my site for logged in admins/not.

Bounce rate not tracking
By , for WP 3.9.1

Hi there,

Unfortunately, using this plugin with Twenty Fourteen, the Bounce Rate is not tracking at all both in the dashboard summary or in the actual google analytics UI.

Before installing this plugin, I had no problems accessing the Bounce Rate stats in google analytics UI, which leads me to believe it could be related to how the Google UA code is enabled on my site through your plugin.

Please advise if there is anything you can do to fix this?

Many thanks,
Gopesh

I love that I can hide my other properties after connecting. It's worked well for all of the sites I've used it on so far!

No support for blocking bugs
By , for WP 3.9

I really liked this plugin until we found a big blocking bug: When customizing the google analytics code (in the before tracking initialization textbox), some HTML characters are introduced that make the javascript code crash.
We reported it on the forum. But there was no support on the forum in more than a week, so that we got back to manual, inserted the code in the header.php, deleted the plugin forever and that works perfectly.

Works well.

I wanted google analytics on my blog, but didn't want to have to mess around with the code in my theme etc. - glad I didn't have to with this plug-in - it does it automatically for me!

Works well

But it looks like the Google Client library in use is a little old and it can conflict with the same library in other plugins. For example Google Apps Login plugin had to rename their Google Client library to fix a bug caused by the conflict with this plugin.

Universal Analytics not working?
By , for WP 3.8.1

All our web properties have been converted to "Universal Analytics".

We've been using Google Analyticator on all of them and choosing UA makes no difference in the code that's inserted in the pages.

We still get the OLD analytics code - even though we've chosen UA,

Analytics dashboard

We really like the integrated Google Analytics preview in the WordPress dashboard.
