Adding Third-Party Scripts

Some third-party web applications and services provide code that must be placed in the HTML, before either the opening <body> tag or after the closing </body> tag. You can paste such miscellaneous code into either the <head> or <footer> sections of the HTML page from the system configuration of your store.

To insert code into the HTML head:

  1. From the Admin menu, select System > Configuration.
  2. In the panel on the left, select Design. Then, click to expand the HTML Head section.
  3. In the Miscellaneous Scripts text box, paste the code. Then, proofread the code to make sure it is correct.
  4. Click the Save Config button.
  5. To ensure that the script is working correctly, clear your browser cache before returning to the store to test the script.
