Tracking 301 Redirected Links With Piwik


#1

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?

Thanks,
Chiappa

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:
