Simple Analytics Tag

Description

Simple Analytics Tag helps you get up and running quick. This plugin has a non-intrusive interface and fits very well within the WordPress Settings menu. Just paste in the ID from Google Tagmanager or Google Analytics and you are good to go. For older themes that don’t support the hook right after the body tag there is a function available you can throw in to make it work. Easy!

Simple Analytics Tag contains the following features:

  • Google Tagmanager Code
  • Google Analytics Code
  • Just paste in the ID and save!
  • For older themes there is a custom hook
  • Simple and clean admin menu page

Note that there are themes that don’t have the ‘wp_body_open();’ hook below the body tag

For these older themes there is the option to put the second half of the Google Tagmanager code in the footer. This is not optimal but still works. If you have a custom theme you can add the hook below the body yourself or request an update on your theme at the shop that created it. Eitherway this plugin will work on the themes that have or do not have the hook. You will have to look in the source code if both Google Tagmanager code blocks are loaded.

Screenshots

  • Add your UA or GTM code in the field. For GTM codes there are extra settings.

  2. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to the settings menu and click on the Analytics Tag item.
  4. Add the GTM or UA code and submit. It should work!
