Google Analytics recently updated their permissions. Site owners who would like access to their site’s analytics will need to enable their Google Analytics account on their WordPress site.
We highly recommend setting up Google Analytics—it’s quick and easy. Having access to the full spectrum of analytics allows you to make data driven decisions about your site’s content and architecture. A few features you’ll also be able to track are your most popular pages/posts and referral traffic to the site.
Our team can provide you more site support in the future if you have historical data. This includes analyzing trends in web traffic, determining bounce rates, common searches, and more.
If you’ve used Analytics in the past or have another account in our network please see this post: Adding New Accounts for Current Analytics Users
You may already be an avid analytics admin or you may have only signed in one time a while back—either way, you’re already setup with analytics. If you have a new website, connecting it to a new analytics account is a good idea.
For anyone who has signed into analytics in the past or who has analytics on another site in our network these steps to create a new account are for you:
1. On your CV page, in “edit mode”, click “Add Media” button.
2. In the media window that opens, use either the Select Files button or drag and drop to browse your computer for your C.V. PDF.
1. Navigate to the page that you want to add the PDF link and open the edit options. Click “Add Media” button on the page you are adding your PDF link to.
2. Using the Select Files button (or by dragging and dropping your files in), select your PDF and click the open button.

Our WordPress multisite network uses the Shibboleth Plugin to authorize new Umich users in the network upon signing in. The person logging in uses their uniqname and kerberos password as their WordPress login credentials and their user profile is created automatically. WordPress Multisite is set up this way for security reasons and to be compatible with UM’s network. This allows for a single sign on when using UM web resources. For example, if your are in one browser signed in to your UM gmail account and then open another tab to log into your WordPress site, you will automatically be authenticated and logged into WordPress.
However, because WordPress is set up this way – all new users must initially log into the network to have their profile synched with the UM network. Then after logging in, they can be successfully added to a site as an “existing user.”
