Hi There,

Below script is throwing the "Uncaught TypeError: jQuery is not a function" due to that custom tracking get stopped. Could anyone help me to solve this issue.

function bindKudoEvent(){

jQuery('.lia-button-image-kudos-kudoed a.kudos-link').on('click',function(e){

var isAcceptedSol = jQuery(this).parents('.lia-message-view-display').hasClass('lia-accepted-solution');

trackClickTkb(0,"kudo count",isAcceptedSol)

setTimeout(function(){ bindKudoEvent() }, 3500);

});

jQuery('.lia-button-image-kudos-not-kudoed a.kudos-link').on('click',function(e){

var isAcceptedSol = jQuery(this).parents('.lia-message-view-display').hasClass('lia-accepted-solution');

trackClickTkb(1,"kudo count", isAcceptedSol)

setTimeout(function(){ bindKudoEvent() }, 3500);

});

}

bindKudoEvent();

Thanks!

Typically, when I see an error like this, it is an indication that the function has been inadvertently overwritten by something that is not a function.   Below is an example of this.

==========================================

Beyond this, the code that you shared has issues.  It is recursing and installing multiple click listeners on your button.

You end up getting a new event listener installed every 3.5 seconds.  That means that if you sat on the page for 36 seconds, and then clicked the button,

      trackClickTkb(0,"kudo count",isAcceptedSol)

would be fired 10 times.

DTM is very good at listening for click events. You should just use DTM event rules for this sort of thing.
