UPDATE: This issue has now been fixed :)

Anyone else experiencing an issue with GTM imports not working today?

I keep seeing Service unavailable. Please try again later. I have cleared cache & cookies. I tried exporting and re-importing the active container and get the same error, so its not an issue with the JSON file.

Looks like a bug, but pls post if you are also experiencing this?

Thanks

Phil.

Hi All,

I am trying to get Reviews and Citations/Quotes showing on Course pages. I am using a 3rd party source called unistats.ac.uk

However... the unistats.ac.uk does not have JSONLD markup on its review pages so a simple sameAs wont work :(
https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool#url=http://unistats.ac.uk/Subjects/Overview/10007786FT-9ECON020UU-201516

Instead, I was planning to us the unistats.ac.uk free API which outputs JSON and I can easily render as JSONLD. However, the requireds 2 field of "% Students liked the staff" and "% Students liked the subject" are missing from the API :(

So... I need to inject a hidden Widget with Content, parse this Content page using JS in JSONLD instead:
http://widget.unistats.ac.uk/Widget/10007786/9ECON020UU-201516/vertical/large/en-GB/FullTime

However, I am no expert at parsing HTML - so wonder if anyone had any tips?
https://api.jquery.com/jquery.parsehtml/#entry-examples

The HTML looks like this...
http://widget.unistats.ac.uk/Widget/10007786/9ECON020UU-201516/vertical/large/en-GB/FullTime

<ul class="widgetStats">
<li><strong>94%</strong> <span>Students agreed staff are good at explaining things</span></li>
<li><strong>85%</strong> <span>Students agreed staff made the subject interesting</span></li>
<li><strong>91%</strong> <span>Students were satisfied overall</span></li>
<li><strong>100%</strong> <span>Students in work / study six months after finishing</span></li>
<li class="widgetAccredited"><span>Additional accreditation</span> <strong>Yes</strong></li>
<li><strong>74%</strong> <span>Students agreed they got sufficient advice and support</span></li>
<li><strong>65%</strong> <span>In a professional/ managerial job at six months</span></li>
<li class="widgetAccommodation"><strong>£5,580 - £6,964</strong> <span>Typical cost of university/ college accommodation</span></li>
<li><strong>18%</strong> <span>Time in lectures, seminars and similar</span></li>
<li><strong>3%</strong> <span>Assessed by coursework</span></li>
</ul>

For Reference the unistats API links are here... my life would be so much easier if they just exposed these 2 fields, which are missing the in the API output!

I did a set of slides on Digital Analytics & SEO Acceleration recently. Here`s the post-project summary after 3 month. The outcome was +25% organic growth in just 3 months! See slides for how this was achieved…

GTM have added a pagination to Variables, Tags and Triggers. Thus if you have more than 50 tags, you now need to click show all.

For me... I prefer to use Control-F to search in the Browser to find variables/tags/triggers - rather than the native GTM search box. However this browser search method no longer works unless show all is set :(

Possibly if there was a GTM shortcut key for internal site search that would make the transition easier.

I find this feature annoying, as I have to manually change to "all" and there is no global override setting :(

Please vote if you like (or dont like) this feature...

Thanks

Phil.

P.S. A shout-out to +Stéphane Hamel if he could update Davinci tools to disable pagination that would also be a good work-around. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/da-vinci-tools/pekljbkpgnpphbkgjbfgiiclemodfpen?hl=en

Hi All,

Quick question... Has anyone created a JS variable to read Xpath @id or @class - I just got asked this question in a #GTM training session & wondered if anyone had tried this already?

Many Thanks!

Phil

Hi All,

Does anyone know the GoogleForm URL to manually send a reset password link to all Admin users on a GTM account? A company has had an employee leave and they dont know the Admin login.

Note: the GTM account is: GTM-PSKDLP

Many Thanks!

Phil.
