  3. In the Layout section, open the theme.liquid file.
  4. Add the following JavaScript code before the closing tag to strip UTM parameters from internal links:
    
          
        
  5. Save the changes and test your site to ensure UTM parameters are removed from internal links.

  1. Go to your WordPress admin panel and navigate to Appearance > Theme Editor.
  2. In the Theme Files section, open the footer.php file.
  3. Add the following JavaScript code before the closing tag:
    
          
        
  4. Save the changes and test your site to ensure UTM parameters are removed from internal links.
