Analytics Snippet (module for Omeka S)

New versions of this module and support for Omeka S version 3.0 and above are available on GitLab, which seems to respect users and privacy better than the previous repository.

Analytics Snippet is a module for Omeka S that allows the global admin to add a snippet, generally a javascript tracker, at the end of the public pages and/or at the end of admin pages. It can track json and xml requests too via sub-modules.

It’s primarly designed for open source analytics platforms, like Matomo (formerly Piwik) or Open Web Analytics, but it can be used with any other competitor services like Woopra, Google Analytics or Heap Analytics, if you don’t fear to give the life of your visitors for free or by paying to people who will manipulate them or sell them with a big profit. Any other javascript or html code can be added too.

Sub-modules can be enabled too to track api json and xml calls, for example Analytics Snippet Matomo/Piwik.

Important: to get statistics on keywords used by visitors in search engines (Yahoo, Google, Bing, etc.) to find your site, you need to allow it via a specific account on each search engine. See Matomo help for more information.


Uncompress files and rename module folder AnalyticsSnippet. Then install it like any other Omeka module and follow the config instructions.

See general end user documentation for Installing a module.


The code can be set in the config of the module and/or in the site settings.

Note: For technical reasons, the html code must start with <!DOCTYPE html>, without useless space or line break at the beginning. This is the default on most of the themes.

To get keywords used by visitors in search engine, enable it via an account in each search engine. See Matomo help for more information.


Use it at your own risk.

It’s always recommended to backup your files and your databases and to check your archives regularly so you can roll back if needed.
