Support » Plugin: GAinWP Google Analytics Integration for WordPress » Active support of this plugin

  • Hi Tom,

    I’m glad that I found this plugin based on the original GADWP, because the new maintainers of that version have stripped out all the functionality, just to make everyone buy the premium version. So lots of people are dropping it.

    Your plugin hasn’t received updates updates since 9 months, so before I migrate all the sites to your plugin, I hope you can share your plans with this project and the current status of the plugin.

    This is your chance to become hero of the day/week/month/year 🙂

    Hi Everyone,

    So a little background. I did the fork a few years ago for a few reasons but primarily b/c I have some other plugins that used GADWP as an API for Google data. When GADWP changed hands a few years back and the auth process was changed to require a third party api, several users expressed concerns with how their data was being shared and used. Thus the fork was done to provide the WP community with a “no strings attached” method for accessing Google Analytics data.

    Unfortunately, the GAinWP plugin did not get much traction and with the pending release of Google Site Kit, GainWP went on the backburner. I do maintain it as it is used by a few of my clients. It works with the most recent version of WP.

    If there is a need for the plugin, i.e. people will actually use it, I would be happy to keep it moving forward. I just don’t like maintaining code in oblivion. My plan has always been to keep this plugin free, as in both speech and beer. Of course, any help is also appreciated.

    It sounds like there is a new need for the plugin.

    Hi Tom,

    Thank you for confirming that this is still an active project. That opens the door for users to switch from GADWP/ExactMetrics and the MonsterInsights version, to GAinWP.

    Please let us know if we can help you with gathering information, testing or something else.

    GAinWP doesn’t need to become a Site Kit solution, because that one takes more steps to configure, is much more intrusive etc. We just want to show the basic stats to “simple” users, that will get lost in all the Google Analytics screens. That was always the power of GADWP and I hope you will continue that course.

    I’ll start the migration for my client! 😀
