Choose the Tag that you just created and click Save and Close. You now have a unique code place on this one page.

PixTracker's primary function is to add special code to an Article by placing a Tracking Tag on it, however you can also add Tracking Tags to Menu items.

This can be useful if you are not loading content on a page, if you want to tag a menu item that is not loading an article like an extension menu item or Category Blog list.

If you intend to use this component on a menu item you should continue reading The PixTracker Manual.
