DoubleClick type= parameter populated via Set data extension - Odd one doesn't work

hi guys,

 

I've got a really odd one on my hands right now and I may not be seeing the obvious here.

 

Two different DoubleClick Floodlights have been implemented in a way that there is only a generic tag implementation and the required parameters (cat=, type=, src=) are being taken care of via Set data extensions

 

General configuration

Lookup value in pathname

Destination: dc_type (UDO variable)

Match type = exact

 

 

Tag 1 Extension setup

 

path = /global/zh-cn

Output = xyz

 

This one works fine.

 

 

Tag 2 Extension setup

path = /zh-cn

Output = xyz

 

The latter doesn't seem to work.

 

Although another extension using the same logic but populating a different parameter works just fine for Tag 2.

 

 

Any ideas what could be the reason?

 

Thanks


Ben

I have found the issue.

 

A friendly word of advice ladies and gents that always check if you have accidentally pasted in an extra space into the pathname lookup/condition.

Because I've set the match type to exact, that space prevented the extension to work.

 

 

I have found this by checking the DoubleClick tag's call and see what the conditions were for the extension in developer tools

LOL I usually find that I miss semicolons somewhere.
