How to Test if a Browser Addon is Conflicting With Analytify?

Analytify is a widely used WordPress plugin that simplifies Google Analytics. However, sometimes Analytify’s functionality may encounter complications, especially if there’s a conflict with a browser add-on. We’ll walk you through the steps to test for potential browser addon conflicts with Analytify.


Before you start testing, make sure you have:

• Access to the WordPress site where Analytify is installed.

• The latest version of your browser installed.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Use An Incognito or Private Window

To start, let’s use an incognito or private window. This mode turns off most browser add-ons, providing a clean environment to test if an add-on is causing the problem with Analytify.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • First, open your browser.

Note: Every browser has different settings to open “New Incognito Window” or “New Private Window”. Check your browser’s settings and open Incognito Window accordingly.

In our case, we’re going to open New Incognito Window in Google Chrome

  • After opening Google Chrome, select the three-dot icon in the upper-right corner.
Incognito window
  • From the drop-down box, choose the New Incognito window. A new, generally darker-colored window opens up.
  • Now, in this Incognito window, go to your site and see if the problem with Analytify is still there.

If the problem disappears in this private window, one of your browser add-ons is likely causing the issue. On the other hand, if the problem persists, it might not be caused by an add-on. You should investigate themes or other plugins.

Step 2: Turn off all Browser’s Add-ons

If an add-on seems to be causing trouble, let’s turn them all off to be sure.

Here’s how you do that:

  • Just head over to your browser settings, which are usually located in the top-right corner under the three-dot menu, three-line menu, or something like that.
  • Navigate to the Extensions or Add-ons section, depending on your browser.

Note: In our case, we have Google Chrome.

Chrome browser extension
  • Now click on Manage Extensions, and you’ll be navigated to the page of extensions.
  • Simply toggle the off button to disable an extension one by one.

  • Assuming you have disabled all add-ons. Now reload your website and check if the problem with Analytify is still there. If the problem is gone, it confirms that there might be an add-on conflict. 

Step 3: Identifying the Conflicting Add-on

To identify the conflicting add-on, you’ll have to re-enable your add-ons one by one until the problem reoccurs.

Return to your browser’s Extensions or Add-ons area.

Follow these steps:

  •  Enable the first add-on listed.
  •  Reload or refresh your website to see if the problem persists.
  •  If the problem resolves, repeat the process with the next add-on.

Keep enabling add-ons one after another until the problem with Analytify comes back/reappears. The add-on you last enabled before the problem returned is likely the cause of the conflict.

It’s worth mentioning that conflicts between browser add-ons and plugins like Analytify can occur due to many factors. For instance,  conflicting codes that don’t work together or overlapping functionality can be one such factor. Finding and fixing these problems can help make sure your website works well.

Once you identify the conflicting add-on, you can reach out to the add-on’s developer for assistance or look for alternative add-ons that provide similar functionality without causing conflicts.

That’s all! We hope this guide makes it easy for you to test and identify any conflicts between browser add-ons and Analytify.
