Support » Fixing WordPress » Google Analytics

  • I cannot activate the Google Analytics plug in. When I try to activate it, I get a message that says that I do not have sufficient permission to access the page.

    I tried to register through Google Analytics itself, but it is not reading my site.

    Help!

  • Did you put the code they provided in your header to sync Google Analytics with your site?

    How do I access the header in WordPress? I have tried to find it, but can’t seem to.

    You can download it/upload it again through your FTP client (e.g. Filezilla), and you can edit it in a program such as Dreamweaver, Netbeans, etc.

    Just copy/paste the code they give you into it and upload it again

    This sounds a bit over my head. If you don’t mind helping me, assume I know nothing (which is not far from the truth). Can you walk me through this? I would be eternally grateful.

    Go to appearance > Editor > header.php and place the Google analytics code just before the closing </head> tag. Save and return to your Google analytics account and click verify.

    I think I found my problem: I don’t have the “Editor” tab under “Appearance.” I suppose I am operating under some kind of limited editing option. I am part of a blog network at a large University.
