This article explains the categories which you should use when building content modification policies, because many content modifications are sensitive to how they are applied. If applied incorrectly they can have unexpected and unwanted side effects (such as some elements on pages not rendering correctly or at all).
Many of our content modifications are specific to certain domains or categories. When building a new policy, it is important to make sure that you apply them only to the pertinent categories or you might experience unexpected or unwanted side effects.
The table below summarizes the main content modification rules that are category specific:
- Those marked Important must be configured using specific targets for the rule to be effective and to avoid side effects.
- Those marked as Suggested should use specific targets to achieve maximum effectiveness and performance from your Guardian product.
