Google Analytics

Hey, gang. I’m using the Google Analytics action. In the instructions on the Softpress site, it says to drop the code into your “root folder.” Is that the home page that’s index.html? Or is it something else?

Thanks,
Jamie

Mm not sure about applying it to the root folder. Normally the code (supplied when you create an analytics account) would be pasted into the HTML/markup. But, now with the google analytics action applied (to each page you want tracked) you can just past it into the empty field in the actions pallet. Correct?

Yeah, I think that’s the way to do it. I went to the Softpress website and looked it up on the “Fun With FW5” tab about Google Analytics. It said to add it to the root folder.

In the past, I’ve added it to individual pages. But I’m thinking that adding it to the root folder automatically does that. I’m just not sure I did that – I put it in the home page “index.html” I think that’s what they mean, but I’m not sure.

It means the Site Folder, this is the folder that contains all your
pages in the Site Panel on the left side of the Freeway window. To do
this go to Page>Folder Actions and choose Google Analytics.

Hope this helps.

Hi, Joe –

Yup. That works. I did it.

I also clicked the “Use Legacy Code” check box, right? If I’m not supposed to do that, just let me know.

Thanks,
Jamie

“Use Legacy Code” means you will use Google’s old code. Not too much
of an issue but it will mean you won’t get all of the new* features
that they offer.

*Im not sure what these new features are
