This plugins is heavily requested by the community (http://feedback.phpmyvisites.net/feedbacks/3135-external-link-clicks-statistics).
- Outlink tracking
– activation requires a flag in the javascript file + optional list of host alias for each site ID (so we don’t save clicks on internal Urls)
– detects automatically the external links via some JS magic and record these clicks
– display the list of out clicks as actions in the piwik interface
- Download tracking
– activation requires a flag in the JS file
– detects automatically the clicks on files (given a list of extensions in the JS file : zip, exe, doc, pdf, etc. )
– display the list of downloads as actions in the piwik interface

I believe Download Tracking should be implemented server side. If outbound link tracking is enabled then you can process the URLs later for file extensions or custom mask,s such as ‘/download.php?file_id=’.

I believe I can have a prototype for outbound link tracking early in February.

patch submitted:

changed piwik.js so you can override/define in javascript code:

piwik_install_tracker = 1 | 0
piwik_tracker_pause = (time in ms)
piwik_download_extensions = "jpg|png … ";
piwik_hosts_alias = [ “hostname1.com”, “hostname2.com”, … ];
(window.location is added to this array)

you can specify link classes:

piwik_ignore – do not track this link
piwik_download – this link is download
piwik_link – this link is outlink (even if it is from this host/host aliases)

and solved the bug with:
- relative URLs
- tracking image links

(patch attached)
