There was a request on how to enable google analytics in ASpace. I was going to write a plugin for this, but it's actually so simple, it might be easiest just to use the local plugin instead of having a dedicated plugin.


1) Enroll in Google Analytics, register your site ( you don't need to include the port number  in the URL ) , and get your tracking code ( it'll be a block of javascript )

2) Ensure that the local plugin is enabled in your config/config.rb ( it is by default )

3) add your tracking code to a file called plugins/local/public/views/layout_head.html.erb

4) Restart ASpace

Once the server restarts, you should start seeing traffic come in on the real time app window.

best, Chris.
