How to Turn On Debug Mode

ExactMetrics makes it easy for developers to quickly determine if an element is being tracked on click, or what type of link it is being tracked as. This is possible due to the full console-based debugging system implemented within ExactMetrics.

Debug mode is useful when website owners or theme authors need to make custom link tracking in our Custom Link Attribution system.

To enable debug mode, set a Javascript window variable in the developer console of modern-day browsers:

var exactmetrics_debug_mode = true;

Once executed, each click within that window will output debug information.

ExactMetrics will display within the browser’s developer console:

  • If it’s tracked.
  • What it is tracked as.
  • and etc…

That’s it! You now know how to turn on Debug Mode for ExactMetrics.
