titleAdd Google Analytics code to my space?

You need to create a page to hold the tracking code, and then add a 'page include' referencing that page on each page you want to track:

  1. Create a page to hold the tracking code:
    1. Create a new page entitled Google Analytics in your space.
    2. Add an HTML macro block to the page by typing {html}
    3. Inside the HTML macro block that appears, paste the javascript tracking code copied from your Google Analytics account.
    4. Save the page.
  2. Add a ‘page include’ to each page you want to track:
    1. Go to the page you want to track and click Edit.
    2. At the bottom of the page, type {include:Google Analytics}
    3. The include macro placeholder will appear.  You can now simply copy it (click the placeholder and do Ctrl-C) and paste it into any other page you want to track.  Don’t forget to save the page.
    4. It will take up to 24 hours for your data to appear in Analytics.
titleDelete my space?

If you decide that your wiki space is no longer needed, please contact the Wiki Administrators to remove it for you. Keep in mind that once the space is removed, it is no longer recoverable. If you want to make a backup of the content in your space before it is removed, see Export Content to Word, PDF, HTML, and XML.
