ANalytics data not refreshing

I created some accounts and properties last year. "Months" ago I had to rename some of the properties. By change, I renamed the property and gave it another name. I also had to delete some websites so instead of deleting the property I renamed it.

When I look in the Analytics dashboard I see the updated changes. When I go to a WordPress website and attempt to use an analytics plugin to authenticate the website I see the old property views. What am I missing in terms of being able to make a change, such as a rename, and then being able to see this change reflected outside of the Analytics dashboard?

 

Any responses appreciated.

Renaming a property doesnt change any of the View's or a View's Settings belonging to the a Property.

1) Have you updated the Property Settings and all View Settings to reflect the new/different website url
2) Did you rename each View too

3) Something to bare in mind, if you are wanting to retain the historical data in the Views related to the previous unrelated website, then the better option would be to create a new Property.

 

Have you cleared all browser cookies and cache. 
And.. does the website use any caching plugins? If so, then you may want to possibly clear the cache for the plugin too

I did not change the View settings and will give it a shot now. 

 

Thanks
