Integrating Gamera on a Wordpress Site

Backup your wordpress

If you are not accustomed to modifying wordpress theme code, the very first thing you should do is back up WordPress. In the installation step below you will need to change the wordpress theme code and if you make a mistake it can be difficult to fix without a backup. If however you make a mistake, the backup will restore everything back to normal. You can find out more about various backup methods in the official Wordpress Developer Resources

Install our tracking Code

In this example we will use the popular theme editor plugin to update the active wordpress theme to include the Gamera tracking script. This will ensure that our script loads successfully throughout your site.

  1. Install the wordpress theme editor plugin within your Wordpress Admin panel

  2. From the Wordpress Admin Panel select Appearance > Theme Code Editor

  3. From the theme editor select the header.php file from the Theme Files menu

  4. Add the tracking code below directly below the <head> tag in header.php

  5. Before proceeding to the last step, your header.php file should look something like the image below: themeeditor

  6. Click Update File to save your changes

Custom Domain Tracking Code

If you are using a custom domain, you can find the correct tracking code in the Gamera Site Manager. Simply select the Show Measurement Tag option from the action menu Script Tag

Gamera Hosted Tracking Code

If you are not using a custom domain, you can use the tracking code below. Note please ensure your replace with the domain name of your site

<script id="__gamera__" src="" async></script>


Be sure to replace in the example above with the proper domain of the site you will be tracking
