Hello team, we are using the getPercentPageViewed plugin v3.01 and meet the following case:

Installation

1. Added the plugin code in Plugin Section:

/* Adobe Consulting Plugin: getPercentPageViewed v3.01 w/handlePPVevents helper function (Requires AppMeasurement and p_fo plugin) */

s.getPercentPageViewed=function(pid,ch){var s=this,a=s.c_r("s_ppv");a=-1<a.indexOf(",")?a.split(","):[];a[0]=s.unescape(a[0]);

pid=pid?pid:s.pageName?s.pageName:document.location.href;s.ppvChange=ch?ch:!0;if("undefined"===typeof s.linkType||"o"!==

s.linkType)s.ppvID&&s.ppvID===pid||(s.ppvID=pid,s.c_w("s_ppv",""),s.handlePPVevents()),s.p_fo("s_gppvLoad")&&window

.addEventListener&&(window.addEventListener("load",s.handlePPVevents,!1),window.addEventListener("click",s.handlePPVevents, !1),window.addEventListener("scroll",s.handlePPVevents,!1),window.addEventListener("resize",s.handlePPVevents,!1)),s._ppvPreviousPage=a[0]?a[0]:"",s._ppvHighestPercentViewed=a[1]?a[1]:"",s._ppvInitialPercentViewed=a[2]?a[2]:"",s._ppvHighestPixelsSeen=a[3]?a[3]:""};

/* Adobe Consulting Plugin: handlePPVevents helper function (for getPercentPageViewed v3.01 Plugin) */

s.handlePPVevents=function(){if("undefined"!==typeof s_c_il){for(var c=0,d=s_c_il.length;c<d;c++)if(s_c_il[c]&&s_c_il[c].getPercentPageViewed){var a=s_c_il[c];break}if(a&&a.ppvID){var f=Math.max(Math.max(document.body.scrollHeight,document.documentElement.scrollHeight),Math.max(document.body.offsetHeight,document.documentElement.offsetHeight),Math.max(document.

body.clientHeight,document.documentElement.clientHeight));c=(window.pageYOffset||window.document.documentElement.scrollTop||window.document.body.scrollTop)+(window.innerHeight||document.documentElement.clientHeight||document.body.clientHeight);d=Math.min(Math.round

(c/f*100),100);var e="";!a.c_r("s_tp")||a.unescape(a.c_r("s_ppv").split(",")[0])!==a.ppvID||1==a.ppvChange&&

a.c_r("s_tp")&&f!= a.c_r("s_tp")?(a.c_w("s_tp",f),a.c_w("s_ppv","")):e=a.c_r("s_ppv");var b=e&&-1<e.indexOf(",")?e.split(",",4):[];f=0<b.length?b[0]:escape(a.ppvID);var g=1<b.length?parseInt(b[1]):d,h=2<b.length?parseInt(b[2]):d;b=3<b.length?parseInt(b[3]):c;0<d&&(e=f+","+(d>g?d:g)+","+h+","+(c>b?c:b));a.c_w("s_ppv",e)}}};

/* Adobe Consulting Plugin: p_fo (pageFirstOnly) v2.0 (Requires AppMeasurement) */

s.p_fo=function(on){var s=this;s.__fo||(s.__fo={});if(s.__fo[on])return!1;s.__fo[on]={};return!0};

2. Added initialization code in doPlugin section:

    if(s.pageName)

        s.getPercentPageViewed();

    if(s._ppvPreviousPage)

        s.eVar10 = s._ppvHighestPercentViewed;

Testing

When the page is loading all is okay - pageview tag fires. But when you do hard refresh (ctrl + f5) - pageview tag doesn't load. I strongly confident it's cased by this plugin because if we disable it, the problem doesn't appear.

Can someone please describe why it happens and how to fix it.

Hi Cathy,

Please use the below code

var loadRule = true; if(window.performance)

{ //Reload of page if(performance.navigation.type  == 1 ){ loadRule = false; } } return loadRule;

Also, put this custom code in a Data Element to reuse it in all of your rules: example data element : loadRule

//Place in condition of any rule return _satellite.getVar("loadRule");

Dear Cathy,

Try the below code, also can you share link to explore your issue.

Thanks kumararajak but you just copy/paste code from plugin installation page, we've already implemented the same code.

Dear Cathy,

This below part was missing in the question you posted.

/*

* Plugin: getPreviousValue_v1.0 - return previous value of designated

*   variable (requires split utility)

*/

s.getPreviousValue=new Function("v","c","el",""

+"var s=this,t=new Date,i,j,r='';t.setTime(t.getTime()+1800000);if(el"

+"){if(s.events){i=s.split(el,',');j=s.split(s.events,',');for(x in i"

+"){for(y in j){if(i[x]==j[y]){if(s.c_r(c)) r=s.c_r(c);v?s.c_w(c,v,t)"

+":s.c_w(c,'no value',t);return r}}}}}else{if(s.c_r(c)) r=s.c_r(c);v?"

+"s.c_w(c,v,t):s.c_w(c,'no value',t);return r}");

/*

* Utility Function: split v1.5 - split a string (JS 1.0 compatible)

*/

s.split=new Function("l","d",""

+"var i,x=0,a=new Array;while(l){i=l.indexOf(d);i=i>-1?i:l.length;a[x"

+"++]=l.substring(0,i);l=l.substring(i+d.length);}return a");

So, i thought adding it might solve.

Cathy,

Plug-in code is correct only.

When you hard refresh your website it sets previous page value as null, because hard refresh erases the cookies.

You need to correct your initialization code not plug-in code.

Thanks for answer. The initialization is the following:

    if(s.pageName) 

        s.getPercentPageViewed(); 

    if(s._ppvPreviousPage) 

        s.eVar10 = s._ppvHighestPercentViewed; 

As you can see, we check previous value.

Hi Cathy,

Try this below code to enable getpercentviewed function. I have validated both s.pagename and s._ppvPreviouspage in first condition.

    if(s.pageName && s._ppvPreviousPage)

        s.getPercentPageViewed();

    if(s._ppvPreviousPage)

        s.eVar10 = s._ppvHighestPercentViewed;
