Can't find footer.php file to insert Google Analytics tracker code

  1. I want to find the code editor to insert Google Analytics code, but I can't find it. Most tutorials say I should go to Appearance, then "Editor", but there is no "Editor" under my Appearance menu. Why don't I have it?
    Thanks,

    Just in case, this is the tutorial I've been looking at http://wpmu.org/add-google-analytics-to-wordpress/
    Blog url: http://estereodonte.wordpress.com/

  2. You are reading a tutorial that only applies to self hosted WordPress.org installs.

    Can I use Google Analytics?
    No, Google Analytics cannot be used on WordPress.com blogs at this time. http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#additional-info

    There is no upgrade you can purchase form WordPress.com that allows you to run Google Analytics. Read this for clarity > WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org: The Differences

  3. Thanks timethief

  4. It's important to understand the differences between WordPress.com free hosted blogs and WordPress.org install for self hosting. You're welcome. :)
