Install Canecto on a Joomla site

You bascially implement the Canecto script in the same place as your Google Analytics code. This guide will tell you how to do it in a few steps.

Step 1: Open your welcome email

In your welcome mail from us, you will find your sites unique script. It looks like this:

<!– BEGIN Canecto Analytics –>


document.canecto = { id: {{ site_id }} };


<script async src=””></script>

<!– END Canecto Analytics —>

You must copy the text from you email, so you can paste it into the right place in Joomla. Please DO NO paste the above text into your WordPress site as it is only an example and will not work on your site.

Step 2: Implement the Canecto code on your site

The Canecto Script needs to be installed in the Joomla. For this you need to log in as an administrator.

A: Next you navigate to the Templates section: Extensions > Templates > Templates.  

B: Here you must select index.php in the left sidebar menu.

C: Paste the Cancto script directly above the </body> tag.

D: Click Save

Paste the Canecto code above the “Body tag”


Canecto starts the learning process as soon as soon as you have installed the script. When the algorithms have learned enough about your user’s behaviour, you will be able to log in to Canecto. You will receive a mail when your insights are ready. It takes on average seven days for the system to get the learning it needs.
