Using Google Tag Manager?

Did you install Sumo through Google Tag Manager? Take a look at our GTM installation guide HERE.

Make sure that you've modified the install code correctly, as per step #5:

GTM install script:

<script>document.write("<scr"+"ipt src=\"//\" data-sumo-site-id=\"YOUR SITEID HERE\" async=\"async\"></scr"+"ipt>");</script>

Using W3 Total Cache?

W3 Total Cache has a setting called "JS Minify" that can cause the Sumo install code to stop working properly and cause this issue.
