SEO - Google Analytics E-Commerce Tracking (optional)

If this site is setup with e-commerce (i.e. Image Gallery and Shopping Cart modules), please ensure that the 'Use Tracking Code' site setting is enabled; as this will allow the Shopping Cart module to automatically generate google analytics e-commerce tracking script.
