Configuring Recording Modules

Beyond HTML censorship, may different recorders can be enabled or disabled. By default, most recorders are enabled, with a few exceptions. Recorders can be configured by manually removing them using JavaScript. See below for examples.

NOTE: Remote configurations (set on the tracking configuration page) are cached for performance reasons, so changes may take up to 15 minutes to take effect.
