I realize I have a typo in my screenshot; make sure the added code is:

__gaTracker('require', 'GTM-12345');    <-- the trailing semicolon is required!

Otherwise your tracking is fine :-)

Hi Lindile,

I'm sharing a video on this. Just follow all the steps.

you can also place code manually in header.php.

 

If you need more assistance please let us know.

 

Thanks

Except the question is in the Optimize forum :-)

@Lindile R did you want to just install Google Analytics on Wordpress or also install Optimize?

OK nevermind, you're using MonsterInsights :-)

 

 Go to your plugin's settings and add some custom code:

The required code should look like:

__gaTracker('require', 'GTM-12345');

(replace with the container ID provided by Optimize)

The end result after you save changes and look at your site's page code should be:

 

 

	__gaTracker('create', 'UA-123456789-1', 'auto');
	__gaTracker('set', 'forceSSL', true);
	__gaTracker('require', 'GTM-12345');
	__gaTracker('require', 'displayfeatures');
	__gaTracker('require', 'linkid', 'linkid.js');
	__gaTracker('send','pageview');
