  • analyticstracking.php

    I have created a php file based on the tracking code and I am about to upload it.

    Create a PHP file named "analyticstracking.php" with the code above and include it on each PHP template page. Then, add the following line to each template page immediately after the opening <body> tag:
    <?php include_once("analyticstracking.php") ?>
    These are the instructions according to Google Analytics, but I really don't understand what is meant when it says after the <body> tag: as I can't find the body tag in the php

    Where is this code placed please?

    <?php include_once("analyticstracking.php") ?>

    It would be much easier for you to just add the GA Tracking code to your templates. If you use vBSEO, you can also add your GA code there.

    Adding more PHP files will add a performance hit every time a page loads, albeit a small one. It also might cause you issues in the future if you upgrade to a newer vB release and forget to modify the correct files again.

      Cheers Will, I will look into that... BTW, does one add it to the forum root PHP files or are the additions made to some other area that I am not yet familiar with?

      I have this confusion with files and templates..

      Is there a list of common templates that this is added to?

      Thanks again...
