caused "Error establishing a database connection"
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin broke my website and caused by causing the following error: "Error establishing a database connection."

I installed Google Analyticator and activated it yesterday. This morning when I went to my website, it was down and I received this error message. When I searched for this error on my host's troubleshooting section, and it said it's often caused by 3rd party software. The only thing I had changed recently was adding this plugin. I deleted the plugin from my cPanel, and the error stopped and functionality was restored to my website.

Easy to use, nice features
By ,

I was looking for a tool to easily set up Google Analytics for my own website and a website of a client. For both, this plugin works like a charm. Easy to set up, yet with clever functionality like you can hide your credentials on a client web site. I also like the dashboard widget that shows you instantly statistics for the last month.

Works well for me - simple and effective
By , for WP 3.9.2

This has worked fine on many sites for me, just to let the client see a quick example of how many hits their site is getting -- in the Dashboard.

Good Plugin

Highly appreciate the hard work behind this plugin. Works great for me. A must-have really.

Nice GA overview in your dashboard
By ,

The simplicity of this plugin is appreciated, as well as the offering of a few advanced features. I use it as a quick way to get GA installed and also to block tracking of myself.

It's also great to have tracking enabled on outbound links, and the option of inputting file extensions to track as downloads.

Works Well

Doesn't give comprehensive stats, login to analytics to get those.

Does get content managers and site owners excited about tracking their traffic.

Installs without a hitch.

Login to Google and create an anlytics account for the domain first.

Working fine

This analytic working fine for us

Takes too long to update

Google is moving everyone to Universal Analytics and UA has supported demographics for months, but this plugin still does not. It even goes so far as to say UA does not support demographics. I have remove the plugin from all my client sites so I we can take advantage of this dem functionality.

Universal Analytics not excluding admin traffic
By ,

Useful plugin, but Google Universal Analytics wasn't correctly adding the line below to my site, for logged-in admins:

ga('set', 'dimensionX', 'admin');

Without this line it is impossible to exclude traffic for logged-in admins (I played with the plugin settings but couldn't fix it).

To fix this, I changed line 1190 in google-analyticator.php:
FROM:: get_option(key_ga_admin) == 'admin'
TO:: get_option(key_ga_admin) == ga_disabled

This matches the functionality of the old Google Analytics and works correctly on my site for logged in admins/not.

Bounce rate not tracking
By , for WP 3.9.1

Hi there,

Unfortunately, using this plugin with Twenty Fourteen, the Bounce Rate is not tracking at all both in the dashboard summary or in the actual google analytics UI.

Before installing this plugin, I had no problems accessing the Bounce Rate stats in google analytics UI, which leads me to believe it could be related to how the Google UA code is enabled on my site through your plugin.

Please advise if there is anything you can do to fix this?

Many thanks,
Gopesh
