GA Nav Menus Tracking

Description

Add tracking events to your WordPress navigation menu items!

This plugin adds custom fields to your nav menu items that represent the parameters for the _trackEvent method of Google Analytics.

Reviews

Interfered with my theme’s mobile menu

I love the concept of this plugin. But I couldn’t tell if it worked because it interfered with my theme’s (Education Hub Pro) mobile menu functionality. But only the mobile menu. Mobile menu items would no longer expand or collapse properly. My guess is there was some conflict with java-script libraries, which I didn’t look into in detail. At this point, I cannot work around the theme, and up to 35% of my site’s users are on mobile devices, so I deactivated the plugin.
