Installing the tracking tag in WordPress is very simple. You don't need to know PHP (that's the language/framework WordPress is written in) and you don't need to worry about trying to edit files within WordPress. Yes, we took care of all of that! All you need to do is have administrative rights to your WordPress site, an active DailyStory account ... and about 10 minutes.

If you aren't sure what this is or haven't done that before, just tell the person or team that setup your WordPress site that you need to install the DailyStory plugin and to follow this instructions on this page. We'd be happy to help too.

Go to the Tracking Code page where you can find your Site ID.
Copy the code shown in the Site ID text box. We'll use this to enable the plugin:
Note, if you don't have a DailyStory account, but want to try out our WordPress plugin - you can always start a free 30-day trial.
Once you have a DailyStory Site ID you can activate the plugin.
Go back to WordPress > Plugins, activate the plugin and then click 'Settings' to configure the DailyStory plugin settings. Finally, enter the DailyStory Site ID and click 'Save Settings':
