  • Hi,

    The var dataLayer_content = {“pageCategory”:[“dslr”]};
    but it should be {“pageCategory”:[“cameras”]};

    This only happens to two parent categories. All the other categories and child categories work fine.

    What could cause this?

    After digging a bit deeper I can see that the plugin picks the pageCategory attributed to the latest post published in the parent category. It ignores the parent category pageCategory attribute.

    Thanks for your research.
    So just to summarize:
    – on a blog category page
    – pageCategory seems to include the wrong value

    Looking at the source code of this part: the plugin is using get_the_category() which indeed is more connected to posts and not to the taxonomy page.

    Perhaps using get_categories() could do a better job.
