Need to add Google Tag Manager Script after the body tag

Need to add Google Tag Manager Script after the body tag

I was given a Google Tag script from corporate that needs to be added to our Magento site immediately after the opening <body> tag.  I can't locate in the System>Configuration area how to do this.

 

We are using Magento ver. 1.12.0.2

Hi @QlikMarketAdmin

There is no universal solution for it. You can add the code to the corresponding templates. Alternatively, you can add this to your local.xml

 

<default>
<reference name="after_body_start">
<block type="core/template" before="-" template="your_template_with_google_code.phtml"/>
</reference>
</default>
Was my answer helpful? You can accept it as a solution.

Re: Need to add Google Tag Manager Script after the body tag

Thanks for the suggestion. I ended up adding the script to a new static block and then created a widget to position this at the "Page Top".  This placed the script immediately after the openning <body> tag as desired. However I should note that using a static block will always insert the script within a <div> tag.

 

Haven't recieved testing results back yet but i believe this method succesfully added the script to each page on the site.
