How to track multiple page items
A powerful (and poorly documented) feature of OnWebChange is the ability to track multiple parts of a web page. Essentially we just combine individual item selectors together with a "," comma. So to select every "H1" tag and every "P" tag, we combine these to produce the selector "H1,P".
The following steps will show you how to track two different parts of a single web page with a single tracker:
- 1. Click to create a new tracker and enter "http://example.com" as the Content URL.
- 2. Click 'next' to select the content.
- 3. Clicking the page text "Example Domain" will generate the css selector "H1".
- 4. Clicking the "This domain is established...." paragraph will generate the css selector "DIV P:first".
- 5. When we combine these with a comma "," to produce the css selector "H1,DIV P:first".
- 6. Enter "H1,DIV P:first" as the CSS Selector and click the '... or use your own' button, you can see that BOTH items are now highlighted.
- 7. Click 'next' to go to the Content tab, then click the 'Test' button.
- 8. You will see that OnWebChange will inform you that 2 items have been selected and are separated using the "|" character.
- 9. You can now continue to create and manage your tracker as normal.
Using this technique you can select and track as many page items as you wish.
