I have issues in uninstalling Google Analyticator. Should I just ignore it and install Google Analytics for Wordpress instead?

    Could you expand on the problems you're having? Can you not delete the plugin in the usual way? May 7 '12 at 10:26

You can manually uninstall plugins by removing the plugin folder in /wp-content/plugins and if need be drop the tables involved in phpmyadmin.

Steps to add Google Analytics to your wordpress sites:

  1. Go to Appearance, Editor. Choose header.php
  2. Paste the GA code above the tag
  3. Save the header.php

    You should also try to deactivate the plugin in the wordpress installed plugins directory and then delete it from there, manual removal should be a last resort. May 7 '12 at 10:26
  • Hi guys, Thank you for the replies. Apparently, I do not have the Appearance, Editor. Choose header.php. Or maybe I can't seem to find it. Now, I don't know where to put the GA tracking code. In my site's GA tracking status, it only says tracking installed. I guess I should just wait for 24 hours before I would know if my installation went smoothly? I also check the source code of my site and I can't find GA tracking code. This might be a stupid question but I'll ask away anyway, GA can't track my site properly without the tracking code written on my site right?
