In order to gather insights and begin optimizing your conversion rate, you need to install the Mouseflow tracking code on your site.
This article shows the few necessary steps involved in enabling tracking for your Joomla site.


Step 1: Log in to Mouseflow


Begin by logging into Mouseflow and clicking the </> symbol to open up the Tracking Code you will need.

Click the Copy to Clipboard button to save the Tracking Code. 

You will need this in step 3.



Step 2: Log in to your Joomla site


Once you have logged into Joomla, use the top navigation to select the template where we want to insert the Mouseflow code: 

Extensions > Templates > Templates.



Select the theme you're using on your site - in our example, it is the Protostar theme.



Step 3: Insert the Mouseflow code in your index.php template


From the left-hand menu, click the template item called index.php.



At the very bottom of the file, just before the closing body tag </body> insert your Mouseflow Tracking Code.


Remember to save your changes by clicking Save or Save & Close.




Step 4: Test Installation and Activate Tracking

 

Once you have completed adding the Mouseflow Tracking Code to your site you should refresh one of the pages that the code is on, this will let Mouseflow know that the installation has been made.


To begin recording traffic on your site, you need to activate tracking by clicking the Activate Tracking button from the 

Manage My Sites page.
You confirm that you will abide by Mouseflow terms and not collect Personal Identifiable Information (PII) by signing your name and clicking the button.


Tip: If you are not seeing the Activate Recording button (or popup) at this point, please try to visit your site in your browser's Private or Incognito mode, and do some clicking, scrolling and navigating while you're there.


Once you have activated tracking, Mouseflow will automatically begin recording your visitors. You can check the Recording Status from the Manage My Sites page or you can click the play button to go to your Dashboard.
