Analytics Head

Version: 1.6.7

Overall Rating
WordPress Rating

This plugin adds tracking code for Google Analytics to your WordPress site. Unlike other plugins, code is added to the <head> section, so you can authorize your site in Google Webmaster Tools. There are many Google Analytics plugins for WordPress. I used a few of those myself and it worked well. The trouble began when I willed to use Google Webmaster’s Tools. It turned out that I can authenticate the ownership of the website using my Google Analytics account. Where’s the catch? Google Webmaster’s Tools expects that the code will be located at the <head> section and all the plugs have placed it at the very end of the page (apart from this case – very rightly). Therefore, I created a plug-in called “Analytics Head”, which places tracking code in the <head> section of the web page. Of course you can put it in the footer at any moment, if you like. Requirements This plugin requires WordPress 4.0 (never forget to update your WP installation!) and PHP 5.3 installed on your server. It is pretty uncommon to offer previous versions of the PHP, however I must note that. Examples Here are a few examples for developers Actions add_action( 'pp_google_analytics_head_before', function() { echo '' . PHP_EOL; $of_course = 'I do not have to print here, I may do something else!'; }...

The plugin ran into some errors.

😞

Sorry, pal! The plugin couldn’t pass all our tests. No hard feelings, right?
