Fathom Analytics

Using the Fathom Analytics for WordPress plugin

If you have a WordPress website, you can either copy/paste your Fathom Pro tracking code into your footer theme file, or use our WordPress plugin.

By using Fathom Analytics for WordPress you can view your Fathom dashboard directly within your WordPress admin area (cool, right?).

In order to show your Fathom dashboard inside WordPress, your dashboard has to be public or privately shared (with a password).

Here’s how you set it up:

  1. Download the Fathom Analytics plugin
  2. Log into Wordpress
  3. Go to Plugins, Add New
  4. Search for Fathom Analytics
  5. Click Install Now, then Activate
  6. Go to Settings, then Fathom Analytics
  7. Type in your SiteID. If you don’t know your SiteId, log into Fathom, go to Settings, Sites, then your SiteID will be beside the name of your site
  8. If your dashboard is public, leave “Fathom share password” blank. If your dashboard is privately shared, then type in the share password
  9. Leave Fathom URL set to cdn.usefathom.com

Taking the above steps automatically places the Fathom tracking code into the footer of every page of your WordPress site.

If you now want to see your Fathom dashboard from within Wordpress, make sure “Display Analytics Menu Item” is checked off. Hit Save Changes, and you’ll see Analytics on the menu in WordPress on the lefthand side.
