From the Support Team: Embedding HTML in the Footer

This post is part of a weekly series by the Magento Enterprise Edition subscription support team covering tips, tricks and hints to some of the most common, and uncommon, issues as submitted by support customers.


Often online merchants need to embed code in the site footer to integrate with 3rd party services such as analytics, affiliate programs, tracking codes, etc. Instead of modifying each template manually, Magento offers a quick and simple way to introduce such 3rd party javascript code to the templates directly from the admin interface.

To do so, locate the Miscellaneous HTML box under System>Configuration>General>Design>Footer. Paste the code directly in the box and save the data. Make sure to refresh Magento’s cache in full under System>Cache Management.

Once completed, the embedded code will be available on your store.
