My Tracking Code is too Long!!

I have been struggling with this for far too long, and I have no ideas left! Whenever I go to create a new Google Analytics account for one of my WordPress sites, the code that gets generated by Google is 9 numbers long instead of 8! It's driving me crazy, and I have no idea why this would happen, or if it is a goof-up on WordPress' end. Figured I would cover both ends, so if anyone out there has had the same or similar issues in the past, please share some wisdom with me!!

Hi Amanda,

 

Are you using a plug in?  Sounds like you are and they have old validation that is checking for the length of the string you are entering. 

 

Edit:

You could also add it to the code of the theme directly via the header.php file or use the "Insert Headers and Footers"  plugin and use the header.    

 

Best,
