    The Google Analytics tracking code has not been detected on your website’s home page. For Analytics to function, you or your web administrator must add the code to each page of your website.

    What am I supposed to do? Please help me.

    I can’t find the “body” tag in my template html :( What am I doing wrong?
    Also, entering analytics ID doesn’t work unless it’s a dynamic view template, not classic. So I have to enter the code manually. Pls help me find the “body” tag ….??
