couldn't find a community for Google Tag Manager, so thought I would ask this here.

I'm trying to insert AdGear tags through Tag Manager. There is no template for this in TM yet, so I'm going with a Custom HTML Tag, but it doesn't seem to work.

The standard AdGear insert uses 2 javascripts, which must be executed synchronously, which is not supported by TM. 
The other way uses iframes, but I can't seem to make this work either.

Has anyone successfully done this? If so: HELP!   :)

(I have also posted this in the TM Forum with code samples:!category-topic/tag-manager/working-with-google-tag-manager/M1E3lVoQOKs)

I think my problem was 24/7: 7" over the desk and 24" behind the monitor...
Tag Manager now supports document.write, and I just combined the 2 scripts required in a single Tag and enabled that option.
Worked in testing. Hopefully the new rendering engine for custom HTML tags is stable.

For those of you who live beautiful apps, this alarm clock looks great and synchronizes between your different devices; I'm trying it out right now...

I'm also interested to see if the viral approach they are using to get access to more features works well. Basically everyone gets a referral code, and every time this code gets used by a new user of the app, you get 2 points, and the new user also gets points (enough for a new theme). 20 points unlocks all premium features. Interesting approach.

This is my code: KFV8-RYZS-F0UQ
To unlock, you go to Settings, and at the bottom there's an option to enter the Referral Code. Just above is where you get your own code - under Share Application.

I've been using the doubleTwist alarm for months now (, so it will be interesting to see if this one gets me to switch with its psychedelic colours :)

"The choices we make reveal the true nature of our character."

A beer ad with meaning? That's different.
