Simply Settings

You don't have to add all the Simply configurations. only the ones you need

1. Social Media

Facebook and Twitter is not necessary because I use them from the ghost settings

Add the Social Links only for the services you want to appear in the header section of your website. Pay attention as enabling too many services will cause menu problems.

➡️ Dashboard -> Code injection -> Site Footer

<script>
var followSocialMedia = {
  'youtube': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'instagram': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'github': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'linkedin': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'rss': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],

  /*
  'snapchat': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'dribbble': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'spotify': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'codepen': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'behance': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'flickr': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'telegram': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'vimeo': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],
  'twitch': ['YOUR_URL','YOUR_TITLE'],

  */
};
</script>

👉 For those who are commented it is necessary to add those icons through SVG

It is not necessary to add all the icons. Only the icons you need.

Settings Google Tag Mananger

With Google Tag Manager, there are a million different ways to make your tagging setup leaner and more flexible.

I'll use an easy way to reduce redundancy here. It's the generic event tag 😊 you guessed it!

— What are you waiting? 🖐 hands in action.

First we'll create triggers

  1. Click Triggers
  2. New
  3. Name of the Trigger
  4. Select Custom Event
  5. Name of the Event

— If you do not understand. look at the image

Google tag Mananger Trigger

Second we'll create Tag

  1. Click tags
  2. New
  3. Name of the Tag
  4. Select Google Analytics
  5. Track Type Event
  6. {{Event Category}}
  7. {{Event Action}}
  8. {{Event Label}}
  9. {{Event Value}}
  10. Non-Interaction Hit true
  11. Here you have to add your Google Analytics code. I have my Google Analytics code in a Global variable. I select my global variable
  12. Triggering — Select the trigger we created first

— If you do not understand. look at the image

Third Insert code

🤔 You can improve the code. I'll leave that to your imagination.

➡️ Copy the below script to Settings -> Code Injection -> Blog Footer

<script>
/* Tracking With Google Tag Mananger */
var godoTracking = document.querySelectorAll('.godo-tracking');
godoTracking.forEach(function(item) {
  item.addEventListener('click', function() {
    var godoCategory = this.getAttribute('data-event-category');
    var godoAction = this.getAttribute('data-event-action');
    var godoLabel = this.getAttribute('data-event-label');
    var godoValue = this.getAttribute('data-event-non-interaction');

    dataLayer.push({
      'event' : 'godoGhostEvent',
      'eventCategory' : godoCategory,
      'eventAction' : godoAction,
      'eventLabel' : godoLabel,
      'eventValue' : godoValue,
    });
  });
});
</script>

PrismJS code syntax

Make your code stand out with the PrismJS code highlighter. PrismJS allows you to select which languge you embeded and performs code highlighting according to the language. Neat!
