SNTT : Adding Google Analytics to the OpenNTF Xpages Wiki template

I have been working on a public facing OpenNtf Xpages Wiki for our Delivery Toolkit suite of products and I wanted to add Google Analytics.

It turned out to be straight forward once I had read a blog by  Thomas Adrian  who’s Xpages based blog really looks the business – try out the search functionality.

Step 1 – copy the Analytics code from Google

Switch to “Source” and you will see the Output Script represented by<xp:scriptBlock id=“scriptBlock1”></xp:scriptBlock>.
You can move this to the top of the other custom controls as shown below.
