Installed Google Analytics and blog is frozen

  • egrigabi

    @egrigabi

    Please help. I installed Google Analytics and from that time the blog is frozen: no possibility to comment, to see previous posts, to add posts or delete posts. I had saved and now retrieved the old index.php file but it still does not work. For any hints I would be grateful. Many thanks in advance.

    Did you install the Google Analytics Plugin? If so, delete the plugin with FTP.

    Your page source doesn’t show the Google Analytics code in the footer; did you install it there or in another file?

    No, not the plugin, but the GA from the GA homepage (you know: register yourself and then you get an account and a source code which you have to copy into the page you want to follow).
    First I copied the GA source into the index.php file. But before that I backuped the index.php – just in case. Unfortunately afterwards I modified some posts from the dashboard, so the dashboard info did not correspond to the blog any more, and since that time my blog is dead.

    Later I restored the old, backuped index.php file, but due to the modifications which I had made in the dashboard it did not correspond to the dashboard content, either. I don’t know if this is the problem or something else, but surely the restore did not help.

    The problem is what you did in the Dashboard, whatever that was.

    The GA code doesn’t show anywhere in your page source.

    Yes, of course it does not have GA source, because I restored the older, backuped index.php, which I had saved before adding the GA source.
    In the dashboard I only did normal activity, like deleting posts and so.

    Without knowing more – like error messages, or very specifically what works and what doesn’t – there’s little I can suggest.

    Try changing background!!

    @egrigabi

    I tried. Apparently, the Dashboard does not communicate with the blog any more. In the Dashboard I see that the background has been changed, but when I visit the blog site, everything is unchanged.

    What index.php did you add the GA code to? Usually it goes in your theme’s footer.php, and I’m wondering if you just made a slip of tongue when explaining it, or if you put it in a file that borked WP… 🙂

    egrigabi: ignore fkaf; the background has nothing to do with it.

    As Ipstenu says, you might have added the GA code to the wrong file. If you added the code to any file outside of your theme folder (wp-content/themes/wowza-10/footer.php), that must be the problem.

    Well, the site works perfect before that green bg loads. And works beneath where it stops when loaded. i had this scrollong problem with a bg. It`s a conflict with Vista. Do you use Vista?

    Vista is an operating system….it would have nothing to do with displaying backgrounds in a browser……

    Yes, I added the code in the wrong file. No slip of the tongue, but stupidity 🙂 But, like I said, later I restored that file. Still the problem persists. (I use XP but I don’t think it has to do with it.)
    Do you guys think I have to bury my blog now?
    Is someone of you in the situation to fix it from inside if I give my password? If so, please mail me egrig[at]ella.hu .
    I would be very sorry if I destroyed it with no repair possibility 🙁

    @egrigabi

    An angel came at night and fixed it 🙂
    Next time I will try to be more careful…
