Great! I was looking at GoDaddy's Analytics codes the other day and I thought I wouldn't know how to integrate them. The one time I say, amazing timing for releasing this mod!


So a +1 post count for you, hehe :P I'll download and try this mod out tomorrow on my live site, I really need it ^_^


Thank you Arantor and the SMF team!

Please pardon my lack of php knowledge.

In installing this mod does the code go
['withing the brackets']  or
='within the quotes'

$txt['godaddyAnalyticsCode'] = 'GoDaddy Analytics code';

Thanks for your help!


Sorry I can't understand this mod is for?
What is GoDaddy's Analytics codes? :(

*shrug* Some people don't like Google, some places Google Analytics is blocked (my old employer for one) so using a lesser known analytics might reveal things Google Analytics wouldn't.

All I know is, it came up a few times in the support board so I threw this mod together based on the Google Analytics mod I did and published it via the Cust team account.

Thank you for the reply and mod. :)


Everything is built from imagination.


When I install this mode on RC5 it breaks quick reply


I've installed the mod and the google analytics code.

However, when i view the source of the page i dont see the google code.

Any feedback?


Looks like you are using a custom 1.1 theme?  ... if so you will need to manually make the edits to install the mod for your theme.  There is a block of code that that needs to be added before the </body> tag in the index.template.php file for your theme.

---Yup. a modified theme.

....you will need to manually make the edits to install the mod for your theme.  There is a block of code that that needs to be added before the </body> tag in the index.template.php file for your theme.

---I added the following code to the index.template.php file immediately above the /body tag and it hosed my forum until i removed it.

---Now what?

<script type="text/javascript">

  var _gaq = _gaq || [];
  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-00000000-1']);

  (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);



Attach your index.template.php file so I can take a look


find it attached.  I didnt modify, but i did put the above code immediately above the /body tag.


I inserted both the godaddy and google code in this file, see if it works for you.


thanks, but in looking at the code i dont see where I am to inject my unique google analytics number. Please explain.


After you install the mod, in the admin panel under features & settings there is a place to enter the code.  Of course you have to have the mod installed, all I did was the theme edit since you are running a custom theme.
