Tracking 301 Redirected Links With Piwik


Dear all. I was trying to set a Goal with Piwik, where when a user clicks on a link that redirects to an external webpage this would be recorded as a goal. But I realised that Piwik does not track or record this click to an external website in any way.

Is there a way around tracking 301 redirects?

Thank you for the link Matt! This solved my problem! Adding the css class to menu items in Wordpress to record the clicks required a bit of code. I wrote a post about it here:
