Once you have added the Hotjar Tracking Code to your site, you will need to wait a few minutes for Hotjar to check if it is installed correctly. This usually happens the moment your site is loaded with the Tracking Code on it - you can visit the page yourself to speed the process up. Once Hotjar has detected the Tracking Code on your site, the Site Dashboard will show a notice like the one below:
If sometime after installing the Tracking Code your website undergoes a major design change where themes and template files are replaced or content in your <head></head> tags or anywhere else the tracking code is installed, are replaced, it's a possibility you will need to re-install the Tracking Code.
After making major design changes, check to ensure your Tracking Code is still installed.
