Hello Scarf Community! 👋


We wanted to let Documentation Insights users know that we have updated the copyable tracking pixel snippet. This new snippet will ensure that the referrer path is properly sent when the tracking pixel is loaded.

What Has Changed?

We have added the HTML attribute {% c-line %}referrerpolicy="no-referrer-when-downgrade"{% c-line-end %} to the tracking pixel’s image tag. This ensures referrer information will be sent as long as the attached URL includes secured encryption with `https`. All Documentation Insights URLs are provided over https.

Update Your Pixel Snippet!

Users need to update their embedded snippets to ensure that the referrer path is now properly sent when the tracking pixel is loaded. Please take a moment to update your pixel embeddings.

For more information about using our tracking pixel, see the Documentation Insights section of our docs.

That's it!

If you have any feedback or questions please let us know in the Scarf Community Slack.
