How to Add Simple Shortcode in Post or Page

Would you like to check the analytics of your website page or blog post to view the performance of a specific page or post content that will help you improve the performance of your content?

Analytify has tons of simple shortcodes, so users can use plugin functionality anywhere they want. Yeah, we know remembering all WordPress shortcodes is difficult. That’s why Analytify has the option to create the shortcode in the text editor with just a few clicks. If you haven’t installed our plugin already, learn How to Install and Activate the Analytify Pro Plugin.

Normally, Analytify has two types of WordPress shortcodes.

1- Simple Shortcode

2- Advanced Shortcode

In a simple shortcode, you just need to set only the Metrics , Period and Analytics For options:

  • Metrics are quantitative measurements, you can select one or multiple metrics such as total users, bounce rate, sessions and more. There is an option of Clear Metrics as well to remove all your selections.
  • Period: In this option, you can set yesterday, last week, last 15 days, last 30 days, this year or last year for your analytics.
  • Analytics For: Here, you can select the analytics for the full site just for the current page only.


You can set any Session from Metrics and set the Visibility role for the present total number of sessions.

Here is an example of getting this site’s total number of users.
