Support » Plugin: Google Analytics for WordPress by MonsterInsights » Upper case letters in settings-site name cause outbound link tracking problems

  • I enabled track outbound links as downloads and GA for WP was adding tracking code for almost every link it found. I decided this was probably because my site address (URL) in my general settings included capital letters.

    How likely does this explanation sound?

    The solution of changing my site address to all lowercase annoyingly means that Facebook thinks I am a different site and resets my Like count to 0!

    Crazy case sensitive business :-).

    You should be able to use the js strtolower() function to change the case.
    I don’t know google js yet, but in general it would be something like putting the ga.js in a function that has a variable something like this:
    url=(whatever var name google uses)
    url=url.toLowerCase();

    or something like that.
