Testing and troubleshooting

  • The Validator tool can be used to verify that the plugin settings for the site are correct and the tracker is tracking page data.
  • Google Chrome’s developer tools can be used to confirm that a site is sending pageviews and/or videostarts.
  • A site must be publicly available for the plugin to work. Sites under restricted access are incompatible.
  • can only collect data from publicly accessible URLs. Password-protected pages, or pages blocked from crawler user agents, are incompatible.
  • tracking code can be added using alternative methods such as Google Tag ManagerSegmentSitecoreGatsbyTealium, and Adobe Launch.
