Setting up a TDI account is simple. Just click the Register link. After completing the new user form and accepting the terms and conditions, you'll receive a confirmation email. Click on the embedded link and your account is live.
If you can't obtain a list of tags from your webmaster or developers, then think about the services your website provides. Once you've written down a list of providers, search the page code in your CMS for tags. Or you can obtain them directly from the vendor. Store the code in a plain text editor.
Tags can be created from multiple jumping off points within TDI. Clicking on Add Tag will display the Tag Editing Screen, where you can enter your tag details. Extensive help is provided every step along the way.
Before creating containers, let's review the basic elements of TDI and how they relate. Containers are embedded on your page and call in tags, which in turn are governed by rules. Rules can contain variables.
Embed your container code in your web page. If you have a testing environment, place it there to ensure you can work out any bugs before it goes into production.
To test your container, go to the website and load the target page. Look at the page source to determine whether the right tags are appearing. If not, examine your setup and redeploy. Usually, you should not need to re-embed container code unless you deploy a new container.
Once you're comfortable that your container, tags, rules, and variables are working properly, then go live. You can set container properties to automatically go live at a specific time. Remember to remove the legacy tags from your page before turning on your container.
Now that you've set up a basic TDI implementation, add rules and variables to your tags to customize their execution. Plus, a special surprise!
