How do you get Google Analytics (or any other tracking) to track clicks within the tables on the website? Links I have within the table are not appearing in my website statistics.
I have a table which enables readers to view our downloadable PDF documents and click a simple button to open the URL link in another tab. This should be exactly the same as any other button link on our website, however, our Google Analytics plugin has not been tracking these links.
The only thing I can think of is that it is because the link is within the Data Table Generator.
Is there anything I need to include in the table CSS – or anything else I can do?September 28, 2018 at 11:37 #20007
Thank you for contacting us regarding your question.
Please specify how you are keeping statistics. Do you mean simple redirects, or use utm parameters?

I use the WordPress plugin Google Analyticator to track all outbound links. I can then go to Google Analytics to bring up how many times an external URL is clicked on the website.
The URLs I have in Tables are direct links to various PDF documents we are hosting on our G Suite (using direct public share links for each document).
Before we started to use your tables plugin, we just inserted each URL directly onto the website page. Google Analytics then recorded each click on each link. I have added a tag to each document URL to tell me which file it is. All links include the target=”_blank” to open in New Browser Tab.September 28, 2018 at 12:04 #20009
Please provide us link on this table.

The link is password protected and contains confidential documents.
I would be happy to send it privately.September 28, 2018 at 12:43 #20011
