Google Analytics for dotnetnuke CMS


I was looking forward to implement Google Analytics for a dotnetnuke CMS site. Obviously i tried to place the script some where in master page like any normal web applications. Then figured out that in dotnetnuke it is skins which are used in common. As i don't have direct server access i have to only download the skin.ascx, and add the tracking script provided by Google & upload it back through the cms. but hard luck this time as the CMS did not allow .ascx file to be uploaded. And even renaming the file after uploading it as a text file is also was restricted. Then I googled for Analytics in Dotnetnuke and found the article below. I followed the steps & Google Analytics is setup for my site :)

[update: Checked statistics report today morning, It works fine...]
