Google Analytics 4 is coming! Is Homestead going to support this?

I have asked the question before, and still have no real answer from Tech Support on if or how we are going to be able to link up the new GA-4 analytics to our existing sites.  I was told at the beginning of 2022 that it wasn't addressed yet.  Now it's the end of the year, UA analytics is going to stop working by July.  I think it's time we get an answer.

Thank you for making sure to bring this up, we have certainly made sure our engineering and development teams are aware of this impending change so we can ensure a smooth transition for our customers and their websites.

Is there anything new on this?  We are about a month away from the July 1 cut over.

Hello all! I have excellent news! The code change for Google Analytics 4 went live today! You'll be able to enter the code in the builder!

@elyzabethv​ I haven't had to change this for a LONG time.  Is there a tutorial on where to put it, or is it just in that page management part like before that we enter it?

Log into your Website Builder. Click Manage on the left, then click Google Analytics. Paste the Tracking ID you copied into this field and click Add Analytics.

@elyzabethv​ The Google Tracking ID you referenced has always been part of Website Builder and has been a feature prior to version 4.  I don't understand what the Homestead developers have added for Analytics 4.  The instructions Google provides indicate that a "tag" needs to be added to each page underneath the page"Header".  So where do we add the tag data for each page?

Previously, our builder only accepted UA codes, which were the old codes. As far as I know, GA4 required you to add a code that begins with G. That is now accepted by the editor.
