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,

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,

Impossible to localize
By , for WP 3.8

I like the plugin but it gets a low rating from me because of two things:

1. It slows down my WP installation
2. It is impossible to localize in any standardized manner
