Viewing a tag’s content page, there may be a warnings section on top of the page, listing potential concerns – marked with a warning icon and text: Warnings
Issues can be one or more of the following:
- Tag is disabled by owner
A disabled tag cannot be viewed by anyone. The tag owner can enable/disable a tag. On the tag’s “Manage” screen, look for “Enable Tag” checkbox in the “Advanced” section near the bottom of the screen.
- No tag specific content loaded yet
By default, any newly activated tag selectively displays information from “My Account” page – so the tag will be operational immediately. However, it is likely the tag owner means/needs to enter specific information in the tag’s form fields.
If no tag specific information is loaded, this warning makes it clear the tag may be overlooked after activation. Changing any information on the tag’s “Management” page and saving it will remove this condition.
- Missing File Reference
A “File” tag without an uploaded file. “File” tag templates exist solely to send a file that loaded into the tag to anyone who views the tag. If no file is loaded into the tag, that’s an anomaly. Uploading a file and saving the tag will remove this condition.
- Missing URL Reference
An “Internet” tag without a referral link. “Internet” tags exist to redirect the viewers of the tag to an alternate destination URL entered in the tag definition.
Entering a destination URL to the tag’s management page, then saving the tag will remove this condition.
- Missing Tag Reference
A clone tag without a base tag defined. Selecting a “Base Tag” to point to – and then saving the tag will remove this condition.
- This tag is not password protected. It can be viewed by the public.
Optionally, dynotags can be password protected. If a tag is NOT password protected, then it can be viewed by anyone – simply by visiting the tag’s private web address.
In many cases, leaving the tag in a publicly viewable state is desirable as that makes it easier for others to view when needed. However, if you have sensitive information displayed in the tag – then you may want to enable “Password Protection” for the tag. When engaged, the viewers will be prompted for a password prior to viewing the contents of the tag.
