Install Canecto on a WordPress site

You implement the Canecto script in the same place as your Google Analytics code are saved in WordPress. This guide will tell you how to do it in three 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 scrip from you email, so you can paste it into the right place in WordPress. 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: Open your Theme settings

The Canecto Script needs to be installed in the WordPress Theme that you are using. The pace to insert the script can always be found in a submenu under the WordPress theme that you are using.


The different WordPress Themes do not have a common standard for where to put the code or what to call it. Most themes, however, call it “Custom JavaScript/Google Analytics script”.

A good indication that you are in the right area is if you can see your Google Analytics code in the field, as the Canecto code needs to be deployed the same place as you have your Google Analytics code.

Here you can see two different examples of how the page looks like in two different WordPress Themes.


Step 3: Implement the script

Canecto starts the learning process as soon as you have installed the script. When the algorithms have learned enough about your user’s behaviour, you will be able to get your reports. They will be mailed to your inbox.

Manage your reports

It takes on average seven days for the system to get the learning it needs. If you log into your Dashboard on then you are able to see the status of the system. Including if it is getting data from your site and the estimated time for your next report.
