Your website currently has iframe rendering disabled, which is crucial for the Event Tracking selector to function properly. iFrames are used to embed and isolate third-party content on web pages, and disabling them can affect various functionalities, including analytics and tracking tools.

Option 1: Manual Input of Selectors

Step 1: Identify Elements

  • Open your website in a browser.
  • Right-click on the button or element you want to track and select “Inspect” to open the developer tools.

Step 2: Locate the Class or ID

  • In the Elements panel of the developer tools, locate the class or id attribute of the element. It might look something like class="submit-button" or id="submitBtn".

Step 3: Input into Event Tracker

  • Log into your event tracking tool.
  • Navigate to the section where you set up event tracking.
  • Manually input the class or ID you identified into the designated field, often formatted as .submit-button for classes or #submitBtn for IDs.

Option 2: Enabling iFrame Rendering

Step 1: Contact Hosting Provider

  • Reach out to your hosting provider’s support team. You can usually find contact information on their website under “Support” or “Contact Us”.

Step 2: Request X-Frame-Options Update

  • Explain that you need the X-Frame-Options or Content-Security-Policy headers updated to allow iframe rendering. Specifically, you might request removing X-Frame-Options to SAMEORIGIN. For Content-Security-Policy, you might need to add frame-ancestors 'self' [source] where [source] is allowing

Step 3: Implement Changes

  • Once your hosting provider confirms the changes, verify by attempting to use the Event Tracking selector again on your website.
