Enterprise customers should contact their account managers for integration support.

This module allows easy addition of ClickTale code into a Joomla! powered website and works in a similar way to the other code/plugins.
Please note:
If you wish to record pages which require visitors to be logged in to view, or pages which have dynamic, user-specific content, or POST pages which have content unavailable via GET, we recommend you incorporate the PHP integration module instead of using the Joomla! module.

  6. After you install the module, choose "Modules" -> "Site Modules" from the menu.
  7. Locate "ClickTale Module" in the list and click on it.
  8. In the "Details pane you should set: "Show title" as "No", "Published" as "Yes" and "Position" as "debug".

Installation Instructions for Joomla! 1.5

  2. Log in as administrator.
  3. From the menu choose "Extensions" and then choose "Install/Uninstall".

Notes

  • In step 8, if your template does not support the "debug" position, you can choose another one (eg. "footer"). The point is to place the module as low as possible on the webpage.
  • Download links for Joomla 1.0 Module and Joomla 1.5 Module are different.
  • Joomla 1.0 Module is not optimal since it places both "top" and "bottom" codes at the bottom of the page. We strongly recommend updating your Joomla to the newest version.

Installation Instructions for Joomla! 1.7 and Above

For more advanced versions of Joomla, the installation process is similar to that of installing the Standard Tracking code on your pages:

  1. Locate the index.php file under the template you are using on your Joomla! site (usually under Joomla/templates)
  2. Add the tracking code Bottom part before the closing tag of the body element (</body>) and the Top part of the code after the opening of the same element (<body>).

Joomla! Extension

  3. Go to Extensions>Plugin Manager select 'System - Clicktale' to edit plugin.
