13This tool allows you to set a code for use with [Google Analytics](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Analytics), which allows you to track your visitors.
17Set the options for this plugin via the **Configuration Settings** menu from the DokuWiki admin menu. (It will be near the bottom of the page.)
19You may use one of two tracking options:
21 * **Basic** "Google Analytics ID" (also known as "[analytics.js](https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs)") using a **UA-XXXXXX-XX** code
22 * **Newer** "Global Site Tag ID" (also known as "[gtag.js](https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gtagjs)") using a **G-XXXXXXXXXX** code
24If you set a "Global Site Tag ID", then this method will be used and any "Google Analytics ID" / **UA-XXXXXXX-XX** specific settings will be ignored.
26## Advanced Usage
30 * [Enabling embedded HTML](https://www.dokuwiki.org/wiki:syntax#embedding_html_and_php) in your local DokuWiki instance (Look for `htmlok` in Configuration Settings)
32 * Edit your site's template to add "tagging" directly
36If you edit your template (the third option), make sure to make notes of what you change, as "upgrading" your template will revert any changes you've made.
38## Install / Upgrade
