Easiest way to add Magento2 Goole Tag Manager Without Extensions

You can easily add GTM without third-party extensions. All you need is to add the GTM code to your active theme. The GTM code consist of two parts: script and noscript.
You need to put the GTM snippet into these two phtml templates for head and body:

New File#1

// YourTheme/Magento_Theme/templates/html/gtm_head.phtml
<script>..</script> <!– GTM code –>  add the GTM head code

New File#1

// YourTheme/Magento_Theme/templates/html/gtm_body.phtml
<noscript>..</noscript> <!– GTM code –> add the GTM no script code

To load the files correspondingly you should use the default .xml file:

<!– YourTheme/Magento_Theme/layout/default.xml –>
<referenceContainer name=”head.additional”>
<block class=”Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template” name=”gtm.head” before=”-” template=”Magento_Theme::html/gtm_head.phtml” />
</referenceContainer>

<referenceContainer name=”after.body.start”>
<block class=”Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template” name=”gtm.body” before=”-” template=”Magento_Theme::html/gtm_body.phtml” />
</referenceContainer>

How to Properly set Production Mode and compilation in Magento2

You can change your Magento mode from developer to production using below command.

php bin/magento deploy:mode:set production --skip-compilation

After running above command your Magento mode will be change from developer to production, then you need to run below commands.

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
or php -dmemory_limit=-1 bin/magento setup:di:compile
 php bin/magento cache:clean 
php bin/magento cache:flush 
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f en_US bg_BG
