Does anyone else have this problem? I'm copying/pasting the New Google Analytics Code (ga.js) but when I hit "Save", the code automatically changes to the Legacy Urchin format. I'm using Analytics, not Urchin. Is it possible for the program to insert the new format instead?

Code pasted:

<script type="text/javascript">
var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
<script type="text/javascript">
try {
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-5974966-6");
} catch(err) {}</script>

Upon Hitting Save code changes to the Urchin format, but with the next-to-last line of code missing :

<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>
_uacct = "UA-5974966-6";
/*code missing: "} catch(err) {}" */

Is Page.SS the right place this code ?

Its better to hardcode it rather than copy pasting to each page from admin.

Thanks for your response. I'm not sure I follow your response.

Using the Google Analytics module, I did copy/paste the code from Google Analytics. Google gives two versions of the code: Analytics and Urchin. I pasted in the Analytics version. When I hit "save", it changed to the Urchin version automatically.

Since this is happening, I will copy/paste the code into the html. It would be nice if the extension worked.
