  • What is a datalayer?

    A datalayer is the foundation of an effective tag management system (TMS) implementation. It provides you with a standardized way to collect and distribute data via your TMS. If you want to learn more abou the value of a datalayer, please read this article by Simo Ahava.

  • Where can I find my unique GTM container ID?

    After you have succesfully created a new Google Tag Manager container in the Google Tag Manager environment, you will be provided with a code snippet. In this code snippet, the unique container ID is included. The ID will always start with the prefix “GTM-“.

  • Why would I change the name of the datalayer?

    For a standard implementation of Google Tag Manager, there is no added value in changing the datalayer object name. We would not recommend doing this unless you really have to. However, in some cases it is required to rename the datalayer. If you have multiple tag manager installed on your site, which require a different name for the datalayer, or you have legacy datalayer objects with a different name already installed, it might be required to change the datalayer name as well. Only use this feature if you are sure it is necessary.

  • Can I upgrade from the free plugin to the pro version later?

    Yes. Simply remove the basic free plugin and install the pro version. you can copy the configurations from your free plugin in your pro version plugin.

  • Do you provide tracking support for non-standard Joomla components and modules?

    Usually no. However, if we believe it adds value to a lot of our users we may expand the features of our plugin. Feel free to reach out if you have suggestions. Keep in mind that the choice to add this type of functionality is entirely up to us. No promises.

    Google Tag Manager provides a functionality to import templates of variables, tags and triggers. These can get you started easily, without starting from scratch. We have created several of these template (aka receipes) based on our pro version datalayer. They will help you leverage the datalayer and collect send data to Google Analytics in a matter of minutes.

  • What are the templates you provide to track Joomla functionalities?

    Google Tag Manager provides a functionality to import templates of variables, tags and triggers. We have created some of these templates to help you track some basic functionalities like logins, registrations and other basic interactions for the core Joomla components. They can be huge timesavers if you want to start tracking valuable interactions in Joomla.
