{google_analytics}

The {google_analytics} TAG dumps the required Javascript code for using the “new” Google Analytics Javascript snippet.

The TAG comes with the SEO Extension.

“New” vs. “Old” Google Analytics:

  • ga.js is the “new” way, which is supported by this TAG
  • urchin.js is the “old” way, please upgrade using the Google Analytics tools

Attributes

  • id - (required, string)

The Google Analytics ID (UA-xxxxxx-x)

  • assign - (optional, string)

The name of the template variable the value will be assigned to. If not set, the HTML will be dumped directly.

  • track_user - (optional, boolean)

Flag whether logged in users should be tracked by Google Analytics. This is not recommended, so default is: FALSE

Please note that you will not see the GA javascript code if you are logged in into BIGACE without specifying track_user=true. Simply log off and reload your page.

Example

This example shows how you normally use the {google_analytics} TAG.

<html>
<head>
   <title>Google Analytics</title>
   {google_analytics id="UA-xxxxxx-x"}
</head>
<body>
  Your content ...
</body>
</html>

This example shows how to log both anonymous AND registered users.

<html>
<head>
   <title>Google Analytics</title>
   {google_analytics id="UA-xxxxxx-x" track_user=true}
</head>
<body>
Registered and unregistered users will be logged. Registered users are users who are logged into the system!
</body>
</html>
