Modifying web analytics through Liferay Control Panel
Recently we needed to integrate additional web analytics tool on the Liferay site. The standard way of modifying velocity templates in the theme and their redeployment does not allow quick testing turnaround and cannot be done using the browser only.
This technique, when combined with possibility to override CSS defined by the theme for the site pages, enables a site administrator much more than just adding new analytics code. It enables quick runtime changes of the page layout, header and the footer elements without assistance of the developer to rebuild and redeploy the theme.
