README

Tracking Code For Google Tag Manager is a simple, lightweight WordPress plugin for inserting your Google Tag Manager tracking code. The plugin does one thing and one thing only; prints the standard Google Tag Manager tacking script in your website. To insert your container ID, navigate to Settings > General and then scroll to the bottom of the page.

Getting Started

  1. Upload tracking-code-for-google-tag-manager to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Navigate to Settings > General > scroll to the bottom of the page
  4. Insert your container ID
  5. Save your changes

Composer

composer require claytoncollie/tracking-code-for-google-tag-manager

Filters

If you want to set the container ID without using the wp-admin user interface, use the filter below.

add_filter(
	'tracking_code_for_google_tag_manager_id',
	/**
	 * Set Google Tag Manager container ID.
	 *
	 * @param string $container_id Container ID.
	 *
	 * @return string
	 */
	function ( $container_id ) {
		return 'GTM-7654321';
	}
);

Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you build this plugin?

The plugins I have used in the past to solve this problem have too many features for my liking. This plugin is comprised three functions. One for registering a settings field on the Options General page. And another two for printing the tracking code to the frontend. I want a lightweight solution for the websites that I build without all of the extra bells and whistles. If you are expecting this plugin to do more or grow in the future, please do not use it.

Where is the tracking code inserted?

The tracking code is inserted into the <head> and <body> sections.

Will this plugin slow down my website?

No. This plugin is intentionally lightweight. All it does is register a settings field, saves to the database, and then inserts the tracking code. Nothing more.
