How to Enable Compatibility Mode in MonsterInsights

Do you want to enable compatibility mode in MonsterInsights?

Enabling compatibility mode allows MonsterInsights to work with other plugins and Google Analytics code which don’t use the Google method to look up the Google Analytics object name, making MonsterInsights even more flexible.

Enabling compatibility mode is easy.

Prerequisites: You must have the Basic Tier or higher to enable compatibility mode in MonsterInsights.

Step 1: navigate to Insights » Settings » Engagement and select the Enable __gaTracker Compatibility check box.

Enabling this setting enables MonsterInsights to work with plugins that use ga() and don’t support __gaTracker.

Enabling compatibility mode is helpful if you want to use some features that are available in other plugins that not yet available in MonsterInsights.

Just be sure to turn off any trackers in the other plugin because MonsterInsights already implements the tracking.

That’s it! Now you know how to enable __gaTracker compatibility!
