What to do if you are updating from an older version
Backup first: as with any major plugin update, it’s wise to do a backup of your site.
Events: If you have events created from our Events tab, check each of them to make sure they work as expected. We try hard to import all the events into the new set-up, but you never know what can go wrong.
WooCommerce: take a look at your WooCommerce pixel settings. We try to import everything, but it’s better to be sure about it. You will also notice some nice and cool stuff there.
Easy Digital Downloads: the same as above, check your settings.
Head & Footer scripts: check if all your custom scripts have been kept after the update.
Google Analytics: add your Google Analytics ID. PixelYourSite implements now a complex and super-useful GA integration.
