OpenScholar: Can I use Google Analytics for my site?


If you have a Google Analytics account, you can easily add it to an OpenScholar site by following these steps:

  1. Create a New Property in Google Analytics.

  2. Copy the new ID.

  3. Go to the OpenScholar site and go to Admin Bar > Settings > Global Settings > Google Analytics

  4. Paste the new ID in the Google Analytics Tracking ID box.

You can also create a new account if you do not have one and copy and paste the Google Analytics ID under Settings > Global Settings > Google Analytics in the Admin Bar of your site.
