Howdy,

I want to install Hotjar and the instructions are . . .
"We generally recommend putting the Tracking Code inside the <head> area of your site."

Would I add this to the common/header.twig using Theme Editor in Opencart Dashboard
or FTP client and add it to
/catalog/view/theme/default/template/common/header.twig

Thanks in advance

How did you end up getting it to work?

(e.g
/catalog/view/theme/default/template/common/header.twig

You would add it to the header before the closing </head> tag. I don't use the template editor, but assume that would work for you.

Okay I wish I could understand but what I think is me following the instruction above just isn't working for me!

So I've been pasting the tracking code here: Design > Theme Editor > Default store (the only option) > common/header, and I paste the code before the closing </head> tag.

The code saves but nothing changes and Hotjar doesn't verify the code to be installed on my site.

Would be so grateful for a step-by-step or some detailed advice. Am not a coder in any way.

That theme editor can be problematic.

If you don't want to touch the core code, you can just enable the Google Analytics module and paste your JS code there. The Google Analytics module can parse script tags and pull into the closing </head>.

Admin -> Extensions -> Analytics -> Google Analytics.

Hello all,

I am also wanting to add in the Hotjar code, however our site is currently operating version 2 of Opencart. How do I do this with an older version? (As I do not have themes etc).

Many thanks!

I already have google Analytics working on my website as well. Can I add HotJar code in same? at which point

Code: Select all

<!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
<script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-XXXXXXX"></script>
<script>
  window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
  function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
  gtag('js', new Date());

  gtag('config', 'UA-XXXX');
</script>

Yes. Just add it below your existing google Analytics script.
