Add the Monsido Script

This section gives instructions on how to add the Monsido script.


To add the Monsido script to the HEAD tag of the website:

  1. Inside the script section, click Copy Script (icon of two papers) to copy the script.

    Image showing the Copy Script button within the script field.

    Important! The script is unique for each domain. It will not work to copy/paste from one to another. Websites ending in .com and .eu, for example, are considered different domains and it does not work to copy/paste the Monsido script. The script needs to be configured separately for each domain.

  2. In the HTML editor, paste the script into the HEAD tag or place it before the </body> tag on every page.

    Note: If Consent Manager is activated, the script must be in the HEAD tag so that it can detect the cookies.

  3. Add HTML Attributes.

    HTML attributes must be added to content elements on your website if you only want them to load once a consent choice has been provided by the visitor. For example, if you are using Google Analytics on your website and only want the script to load once a visitor has accepted Statistics cookies, you will need to mark up the Google Analytics script with an HTML attribute.

    For more information and instructions, see the Monsido for Developers article:

______________________________________________________________________

Cookieless Tracking

The Monsido Statistics module normally applies a cookie to the browser of the visitor. It is possible to remove this, so that Monsido can still track the same data from visitors who refuse Statistics cookies on the cookie banner.

  1. Select Script Setup Guide in the drop-down list. The Domain Setup page opens.

  2. Enable Monsido Statistics.
    For more information, see the User Guide article:
    Statistics.

  3. Turn on the Enable Cookieless Tracking switch.


    For more information, see the User Guide articles:

  4. Configure the Monsido script as usual.

  5. Paste the script to the website HTML and then publish the site.
