How to Turn On Debug Mode

MonsterInsights includes a full console based debugging system so that developers can quickly determine tracking issues like if an element is being tracked on click by MonsterInsights, and what type of link it is being tracked as.

This is especially handy when used in conjunction with our Custom Link Attribution system to allow website owners and theme authors to easily make custom link tracking.

To enable this debug mode, you will need to set a Javascript window variable, monsterinsights_debug_mode to a boolean value of true.

This can be done by running var monsterinsights_debug_mode = true; in the developer console of modern day web browsers.

One this is done, for each click within that window, MonsterInsights will output debug information about the click (if it’s tracked; what it is tracked as; etc) to the browser’s developer console.
