[resolved] [Plugin: Google Analytics for WordPress] Is Google Analytics responsible for these javascript tags i (3 posts)

    I have just noticed that the sidebar links on my blog are all broken in Chrome, Firefox, IE and Safari. I had not noticed until now because I use Opera and all is fine there.

    The links are all offset and not placed where they should be. I looked at the source code and all my blogroll links look like this:

    <a href="http://example.wordpress.com/" target="" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-blogroll','http://example.wordpress.com/']);">Example</a></li>

    So I looked at my plugins, and then at the Google Analytics plugin settings, and I saw that "Track outbound clicks & downloads:" was checked, so I unchecked it, but it is still doing the same thing and my sidebar is still broken.

    Is the GA plugin responsible for adding these javascript tracking tags around all my blogroll links ? I tried even deactivating the plugin, but no go.

    It is responsible for it, but it shouldn't break it. Could you please give me your site's URL?

    Yes, I guess the plugin was responsible, I deactivated it and that fixed my layout issue.
