Support » Plugin: Google Analyticator » External Event tracking broken in latest version

  • Resolved aand


    Thanks for a great plugin – it’s been working really well so far. Unfortunately, external event tracking has broken with the version released December 19/20th. I’ve tried disabling, reauthorizing, reinstalling the plugin but to no avail – it still won’t track external events. Hope you can investigate.

  • Same problem here.

    My outbound link tracking also died on December 19. Has anyone discovered a workaround for it?

    I should have included more information with my previous post. I’m using the Universal code and have enabled Outbound tracking in the plugin configuration. Outbound tracking was working well until the new plugin version on Dec. 19. My URL:

    Thanks for any help.

    Same problem for me… happening across multiple sites (all that use Google Analyticator. I’ve been a huge fan of this plugin for years, but looksl like I’ll have to find another solution. So sad.


    Are you all using the Universal code?


    Using the traditional code here.

    Was using the traditional code. In the process of upgrading to Universal across my properties. Is that the issue?


    No that is not the issue. We are working on a fix, which should be out today or tomorrow.


    Did some digging and found an answer via my G+ community (thanks!)

    Modify this line:

    ‘<?php if ( $event_tracking != ‘enabled’ ) { ?>’

    so it reads this:

    ‘<?php if ( $event_tracking == ‘enabled’ ) { ?>’

    Problem solved. Not sure how things will be affected once my upgrade to universal is completed, but for the time being my issue is fixed.

    Thanks for tracking it down, iuchewie. It does seem to be a simple logic error in the code. And FYI I’m using the Universal tracking code and this fixed event tracking for me, too.

    For anyone who might be confused, the fix is on line 1081 of this file:

    Hope we can expect the fix in the next release of the plugin since this change will disappear anytime you update it.

    Thanks again,

    Thanks guys, we are testing the latest version, should be out tomorrow.

    @iuchewie, @jrisberg nice find, it works – thanks a lot guys!
