can anyone tell me step by step what to do to put google analytics code into a global field? I have read the earlier answer but i am new to craft and i don't know where to start.

You should just be able to put it in a text field and then output it in an includeJs statement. So, add a new global set (called 'googleAnalytics' or whatever); create a text field (called 'text' or whatever); and add the new field to your global set field layout.

In your template you should be able to access it by the globalSet handle.

{% includeJs googleAnalytics.text %}

Not tested, but I don't see any reason it shouldn't work. If the includeJs statement doesn't like that for some reason you can try the following instead.

{% set GACode %}
    {{ googleAnalytics.text }}
{% endset %}
{% includeJs GACode %}
  • I tried this. What should be the correct field type for the text? I tried both Plain text and Rich Text. Both don't seem to work.

  • I would suggest plaintext. You may also need to use raw filter, so that it is not HTML encoded (i.e. {{ googleAnalytics.text|raw }}) Jan 8, 2018 at 20:13
