WordPress – Allow Authors to view Analytics Reports on the Frontend

wordpress allow authors to view analytics reports on the frontend

Let’s face it. We like to constantly see how many people visit our content on the internet. That makes us feel good, and there’s no problem with that. The weird thing would be if we felt good to see that no one reads or enjoys our content.

If you have multiple content writers on your website, they may want to see how many people read their content. But should they always go into the backend to see the Monster Insights reports?

That’s what you normally do, but we want to show you how you can allow your authors to view Monster Insights reports on the frontend.

For this, besides Monster Insights, we’ll need the WP Frontend Admin plugin. This tool allows you to view and edit any wp-admin page on the frontend with just one click.

You can try the premium plugin on your website for free for 7 days.


Once installed and activated, follow these simple steps:

1- Open Munster Insights Reports

This is the first thing you need to do. Go to Insights > Reports to open the Monster Insights reporters.

2- View it on the frontend

To view your reports in the frontend, you need to click on View on the frontend.

Yes, we know it sounds too simple. But that’s the way it really is. It’s the plugin that does the hard work of fully programming a frontend page in one or two seconds with just one click on your part.

3- Configure and publish the page

Our plugin gives you the opportunity to configure the quick settings of the frontend page you are creating. You can customize the title, URL slug, template, and menu of the page.

In addition, you can hide any element. For example, if you don’t want the Monster Insights logo to appear on your site, just click on the Hide element button and then click on the element you want to hide. It’s that simple, but will help you completely customize the page’s look.

For example, you can hide these elenments:

  • The Monster Insights logo
  • The Screen Options dropdown
  • If you just want to see the Overview, you can hide the Publishers, Search Console, eCommerce, Dimensions, Forms, Real-Time. Remember that you decide which elements to hide.

Finally, you just need to click on the Save button to publish the page.

4- See how your page looks

It is really important to always check the final product of our work. Therefore, we invite you to log in to the frontend of your site to see what the page looks like. Your authors will see it as well.

Did you see how simple it is?

You don’t need to program anything. Just a few clicks and you’ll have a beautiful frontend page where your authors can view the Analytics reports.
