In Flow: The Mura Blog

New Plugin: Google Analytics

Just this last weekend I was working on a Mura project and needed to hook into Google Analytics to get some metrics. So l did what any normal red blooded developer would do. Create a new account with Google Analytics, copy the Analytics js code that Google provides and pasted it into my Mura template right above the </body> tag. Very simple.

Then I thought, what about those people who don't quite understand HTML or JavaScript? Sure, they could get through it with a little trial and error, but for a CMS system that catered to both developer and non-developers alike, it's simply not ideal. Knowing this I went ahead and built a simple plugin that takes care of injected the JavaScript for you on a per-site level.

It handles the 3 common scenarios shown below. Each is definable within its respective field found within the plugin.

These scenarios are:

  • A single domain
  • One domain with multiple subdomains
  • Multiple top-level domains

If you need such functionality for you site click here to download the plugin from our Marketplace, then read up on how to use it by clicking the name of the plugin once installed.
