function googleanalytics(){
<script type="text/javascript">

  var _gaq = _gaq || [];
  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-xxxxxxxx-x']);

  (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '';

add_action('wp_head', 'googleanalytics', 100);

Force Files To Download Instead Of Open In Web Browser

You can change the file directivies for a folder by adding a .htaccess file in the folder and including the following code:

<IfModule mod_headers.c>
<FilesMatch "\.(?i:mp3|ogg)$">
      ForceType application/octet-stream
      Header set Content-Disposition attachment

This will force .mp3 and .ogg files to prompt for action rather than open with the default browser setting. The IfModule condition is recommended as it will prevent an error message if the Apache headers module is not installed.
