Kwel-vrae

Do I have to insert the Google Analytics tracking code manually?

No, once the plugin is authorized and a default domain is selected the Google Analytics tracking code is automatically inserted in all webpages.

Why the numbers on Google Analytics 4 don’t match those from Universal Analytics

To put it simply, different technologies and approaches lead to different results.

Is Google Analytics 4 tracking supported?

Yes, you can use Google Analytics 4 properties and/or Universal Analytics properties for tracking, both are supported.

Can I only use a Google Analytics 4 property

Yes, you don’t need to create or have an Universal Analytics property. A Google Analytics 4 property is enough for the plugin to be fully functional.

How can I suggest a new feature, contribute or report a bug?

You can submit pull requests, feature requests, and bug reports on our GitHub repository.

Replied to my support query within a few hours, and kept responding quickly with genuinely helpful responses to my highly technical issues. Truly first rate support! And a great plugin too – my favourite Google Analytics dashboard, with the just the right balance between features and bloat. Very solid too.
