XF 1.4 Universal Analytics User-ID Tracking not working in XenForo?

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I've tried every combination, which way to next Saturday, after adding this on the Google Analytics side. Basically, my google_analytics template is customized this way (yes I'm pushing it out 3 different times to no avail):

    Code:
    <script>
      (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
      (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
      m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
      })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
    
      <xen:if is="{$visitor.user_id}">ga('create', 'UA-XXXXX', 'userId': '{$visitor.user_id}');<xen:else />ga('create', 'UA-XXXXXX',  'auto');</xen:if>
      <xen:if is="{$visitor.user_id}">ga(‘set’, ‘&uid’, '{$visitor.user_id}');
      ga(‘set’, ‘userId’, '{$visitor.user_id}');</xen:if>
      ga('require', 'displayfeatures');
      ga('send', 'pageview');
    
    </script>
    
    Admittedly, Google's documentation on this is not good. I tried all 3 resulting combinations.

    The output looks something like this

    Code:
    <script>
    (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
    (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
    m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
    })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
    ga('create', 'XXXXXXXX', 'userId': '1');
    ga(‘set’, ‘&uid’, '1');
    ga(‘set’, ‘userId’, '1');
    ga('require', 'displayfeatures');
    ga('send', 'pageview');
    </script>
    
    And still no dice. Nothing as far as the user-ID segment in UA showing anything. Of course, multiple users are logged on, so even in real-time tracking, nothing shows. Hmm?

    Solved:

    For those who know what I'm talking about, you literally need brackets to appear in the HTML for this to work. Ex:

    Code:
    <script>
      (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
      (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
      m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
      })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
    
      <xen:if is="{$visitor.user_id}">ga('create', 'UA-XXX', {'userId': '{$visitor.user_id}'});<xen:else />ga('create', 'UA-XXX',  'auto');</xen:if>
      ga('require', 'displayfeatures');
      ga('send', 'pageview');
    
    </script>

    GA doesn't work for me too.
    I added the Tracking-ID in XF in Google integration section but Google Analytics still shows not installed.
