Go to Hotjar.com to copy the code from the Hotjar admin.
Log into the Joomla Administration panel.
Click on the Template Manager link.
Click the Templates tab.
Locate the template your site is using, then click on its title.
Click the Edit main page template link.
Locate the </head> closing tag and insert your Tracking Code above it.
Save & Close button.
Your Hotjar Tracking Code is now installed.
Once you have added the Hotjar Tracking Code to your site, you will need to wait a few minutes for Hotjar to check if it is installed correctly. This usually happens the moment your site is loaded with the Hotjar code on it (you can visit the page yourself to speed it up). Once Hotjar has detected the Tracking Code on your site, the Site Dashboard will show a notice like the one below:
If sometime after installing the Tracking Code your website undergoes a major design change where themes and template files are replaced or content in your <head></head> tags or anywhere else the tracking code is installed, are replaced, it's a possibility you will need to re-install the Tracking Code.
After making major design changes, please check to ensure your Tracking Code is still installed.
Once your Tracking Code is installed
