//Replace xxxxxxx-x with YOUR GoogleAnalytics UA number
$googleAnalytics = "UA-xxxxxxx-x";
//Set to true if you are using the Monobook skin (uses a Monobook-specific hook)
//This setting is ignored for MW 1.11+ (SkinAfterBottomScripts is used instead)
$googleAnalyticsMonobook = true;
require_once( "$IP/extensions/googleAnalytics/googleAnalytics.php" );
