Where’s my Egg?

I just noticed that Crazy Egg stop collecting my blog stats a while ago. It’s my fault because I switched my theme and forgot to embed the Crazy Egg codes back.

As a result, I’ve made a WordPress plugin so that the codes will be automatically added to my theme. With a condition that the <?php wp_footer() ?> must be present in footer.php. Go to Plugins→ Crazy Egg Configuration to configure.

  1. Thanks for the plug-in.

    Maybe it’s a dull question, but which page will actually be tracked with this plugin? The blog home page, the post detail page, …?

    Since crazyegg creates a heat map of a specific page, this may be important.

    thanks.

    Francis, please download the new one. I’ve made a minor fix to the code.

    Zeo, thank you for providing such a useful plug-in! One problem though: the code I got was in the following format: “/pages/scripts/1234/5678.js”. The plug-in ignores the slash and everything after it when entering a Crazy Egg ID like 1234/5678. I suppose CE changed their URLs for new accounts… Any chance you can add support for these?

    Thanks again,

    F

    Installed the plugin several weeks ago and it worked great. Now that the initial crazy egg test is over, I decided to start a new one. Except now the code isn’t being displayed in my index page. As a result, Crazy Egg thinks I’m not getting any visits.

    Any ideas?

    Ratio, the plugin doesn’t track logged in user.

    If you want to, remove && !is_user_logged_in()

    Oh, and my theme has the following set in my footer.php:

    I’m not a programmer, just a designer, but is this the same as which is mentioned above?

    Thanks again

    Howdy,
    Has anyone had trouble getting this plug-in to work on a WP blog that have all the blog files in a different directory that the WP blog index page?

    i.e.:
    inde.php (my blog homepage)
    /blog/wp-admin/
    /blog/wp-content/
    etc.

    When I enter in my Crazy Egg code, the JavaScript code is never actually added to my blog pages.

    I have even tried :
    – Setting up a different Crazy Egg account to get a totally different CE # (in the JavaScript code)
    – Deactivating the old CE plug-in from within my WP admin
    – Removing the plug-in file from my server
    – Downloading the CE plug-in from this web site, again
    – Dumping my cache and cookies
    – Uploading the CE plug-in back into the /blog/wp-content/plugins/ folder
    – Refreshing my WP plug-ins admin page
    – And setting my new CE code
    … but still no luck.

    Notice that I never entered my new CE e-mail address, just the CE code #. The plug-in never asked for my new the CE Account IE (e-mail address in this case).

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    _rs

  18. [...] Wer sein WordPress-Blog beobachten und Positon von Links, Ads oder Bannern optimieren möchte, hat es noch einfacher, denn es gibt ein kleines Plugin dafür, das nur heruntergeladen, in den Plugin-Ordner hochgeladen und aktiviert werden muss. Anschliessend wird die von Crazy Egg für das Tracken erzeugte Zahl im Blog unter Optionen –> Crazy Egg eingetragen und gespeichert. [...]
