GDPR

This plugin does not collect any user data. Even so, the tracking code added by this plugin is used by Google to collect all sorts of user data. So this plugin does not do anything to make your site less compliant with GDPR. I have done my best to ensure that this plugin is 100% GDPR compliant, but I’m not a lawyer so can’t guarantee anything. To ensure that your site is compliant with GDPR, please consult an attorney, and also check with Google and/or configure your Google account settings and/or tracking code as required by GDPR.

Works perfectly with or without Gutenberg

Tracking code is not displayed in source code?

If you check the source code of your pages and don’t see the GA tracking code, check the following:

  • Check that your theme includes the hooks, wp_head and wp_footer
  • If you are using a caching plugin, try clearing the cache

If the GA tracking code still is not displayed, most likely there is interference from another plugin or theme. In this case, the best way to resolve the issue is to do some basic WordPress troubleshooting.

Google Analytic says tracking code is not detected?

You need to wait awhile for Google to collect some data, like at least a day or whatever. Standard stuff for Google Analytics. For more information, check out the Google Analytics Help Center.

Can I filter the output of the «Custom GA Code» setting?

Yes, you can use the gap_custom_code filter hook.

How to implement Google Optimize?

Here are the steps:

  1. Enable Universal Analytics in the plugin settings
  2. Add the Optimize plugin (e.g., ga('require', 'GTM-XXXXXX');) to the setting, «Custom GA Code»
  3. Add the Page Hiding (flicker) snippet to the setting, «Custom <head> Code»
  4. Enable the setting, «Custom <head> Location»

Done! You can view the source code of your web pages to verify the results.

Great

Great plugin & support

didn’t work for me

I was using GA script in header, tracking was working, switched to this plugin, unfortunately GA stopped tracking, I looked at your troubleshooting section and honestly I just don’t have time to go through the standard troubleshooting steps, maybe i’ll come back and revisit this when I have more time, I’m sure it is conflicting with something else I have or it’s caching. Would have loved to use it.
