Attach custom properties to pageviews

1. Change the Plausible snippet on your site

The easiest option to get started is to use the script.pageview-props.js script extension. Please change the file name in the src attribute of your Plausible snippet from script.js to script.pageview-props.js. It should look like this:

<script defer data-domain="" src=""></script>

Or if you're using a proxy:

<script defer data-domain="" src=""></script>
You can combine our script extensions

If you're using any of our other script extensions, you can combine them by changing the src attribute in the snippet. If you want to track pageview props and outbound link clicks simultaneously, change the script name to script.pageview-props.outbound-links.js

2. Add your custom properties to your Plausible snippet

You should now add the custom properties as HTML attributes to your Plausible snippet (the <script> element). The attributes must follow the format event-<property>="<value>". For example, if you want to track the author property with a value of John Doe, you should do that as follows:

<script defer event-author="John Doe" data-domain="" src=""></script>

You can add up to 30 custom properties alongside a pageview by adding multiple attributes:

<script defer event-author="John Doe" event-logged_in="true" event-darkmode="true" data-domain="" src=""></script>

All properties provided in the snippet will automatically be attached to any custom event conversions as well.

That's it! You're now tracking custom properties alongside pageviews.

Using script.manual.js as an alternative

As an alternative, you can also use our manual script extension to send custom properties for pageviews. It works exactly the same way as with custom properties for custom events. Make sure to write pageview exactly the same as in the following example:

plausible('pageview', {props: {author: 'John Doe', logged_in: 'false'}})

This will send a pageview with properties author and logged_in.

Using a combination of script.manual.pageview-props.js

You can also combine the manual extension with the pageview-props extension. For example, if you're using this snippet:

<script defer event-logged_in="false" data-domain="" src=""></script>

and also calling the plausible function manually like this:

plausible('pageview', {props: {author: 'John Doe'}})

Then the pageview will be sent with two properties - author and logged_in. If you provide the exact same property name in the snippet and in sending the pageview manually, the value from the manual plausible function call will take precedence. For example, if you do this:

<script defer event-logged_in="false" data-domain="" src=""></script>
<script>plausible('pageview', {props: {logged_in: 'true'}})</script>

Then the pageview will be sent with logged_in = true.
