React troubleshooting

The problem

When passing placement details in a React page, make sure that the same placement is not mistakenly submitted twice - e.g. when the same component event is fired more than once.

This can result in the following error:

Error in TRC.handleLoadResponse : : Cannot set property 'isFeed' of undefined

The solution

A possible solution is to set a flag within your component's state. The following code illustratesย the general idea, using a class component.

class YourNiftyComponent extends React.Component {
  
  componentDidMount() {
    // Check if flag is 'false':
    if (this.state.isPushed === false) {
      
      // If yes...
      
      // a) Pass placement details:
      window._taboola = window._taboola || [];
      _taboola.push({
        mode: "<mode>",
        container: "<container_id>", // You must add a <div> container to the page, with a unique ID.
        placement: "<placement>",
        target_type: "<target_type>",
      });

      // b) Set flag to 'true':
      this.setState({
        isPushed: true,
      });
    }
  }
}
