Firing Facebook Tag with utag.view

Hello, we need to fire a Facebook Tag on a conversion page that doesn't trigger a page reload. The conversion page is tracked with Adobe Analytics using a call to utag.view and it works fine. Problem is that Facebook Tag doesn't seem to work with utag.view. It looks like this pixel sets a flag (u.initialized) that is not cleared by utag.view and this prevents the tag to be fired more than once per page load. if (!u.initialized) { u.loader({ "type" : "script", "src" : u.data.base_url, "cb" : u.loader_cb, "loc" : "script", "id" : "utag_##UTID##" }); // Custom Audiences _fbq.push(['addPixelId', u.data.cust_pixel]); _fbq.push(['track', 'PixelInitialized', {}]); } else { u.loader_cb(); } Is there a way to force this pixel to send data with utag.view? Best, Giacomo

Hi Giacomo, What type of conversion page is it? Is there an Order ID set on the page? Thanks, Adam

Hey Giacomo, There is more information on using utag.view to send data in this article (https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/uTag/utag-link-and-utag-view/ta-p/11888). Take a look and let us know if you have additional questions. Thanks, Seth

Hey I'd also like to understand more about this behavior. I also use Facebook pixels and have to create extensions to reload their code, or else they only fire for the first utag.view() and on all subsequent calls the tag code doesn't get rerun. That link sends me to a page that says I don't have sufficient permissions to read, can that be fixed. Thanks!
