New versions of google Analytics

Google has two and I think a third Analytics integration is here or on the way shortly. Mojo only supports the older style universal analytics at the moment and for never versions we put it in the skin (such as Tag Manager).

I wonder if a simple open text box is better and the user just pastes in the code Google provides? This wouldn't be depreciated as fast. This same code block could be used for other services as well for analytics tracking. It would need a little thought as to how it's placed, maybe with different location options like the Custom Javascript module does.

Not sure, just bringing it up for discussion.

Re: New versions of google Analytics

Hi Eric,

We have a feature in the repo now where one can add to the <head> and right above </body> of all pages on a site. That could replace the current Google Analytics integration. We have separate inputs implemented for CMS Pages and Admin Pages so one could add their GA scripts without worrying about GA being used on admin pages.

Thanks,
Joe

That does sound like a good solution and probably more flexible for the future.

Re: New versions of google Analytics

We're working on getting the mysql, sqlite, and pgsql database layers in sync with the mssql data layer. Once that is done, we'll be able to publish a release and you'll be able to use the new scripts features.

Re: New versions of google Analytics

Sounds like a nice feature Joe, looking forward to it. Not sure what your ETA is but I'm about to start a new site build and could test out the new version and report back as I go. Not sure, I have to start soon though. Either way, great news!
