Support » Plugin: Google Analytics for WordPress by MonsterInsights » Manually Entering UA code

  • If I go to the plugin and tick the box to manually enter my GA code, I get a message saying “Warning: If you use a manual UA code, you won’t be able to use the dashboards.”

    What does that mean?

    I’m presently using GA Universal, but wanted to use the following code below. The text box that is there looks too tiny to paste in the block below.

    /* Google Analytics' new universal tracking code */
    (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)})(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
    ga('create', 'UA-xxxxx-1, 'auto');
    
    /* Define the custom dimensions */
    ga('send', 'pageview', {
      'dimension1': WURFL.complete_device_name,
      'dimension2': WURFL.form_factor,
      'dimension3': WURFL.is_mobile
    });

  • It’s asking for the “UA-xxxxx-1” code only.
    That’s your Google Analytics profile’s UA code.

    Entering the manual UA code will still allow Google Analytics to be tracked on your website.

    The “Authenticate” option above it does that & more.
    It allows you to view the Google Analytics graphs/reports in your website itself, instead of having to login to the Google Analytics site to view them there. (Personally, I don’t use that feature.)

    P.S. I’m not the developer, I just thought I could answer your 2 questions.
    😉

    any new about the Warning msg?
