Any idea how we should handle this case below? I want to get the target URL example.com but I am unsure where or how to insert the class attribute so that the even can be triggered.

 

<a href="javascript&colon;void(window.open('http://www.example.com/welcome.html','popup', 'width=800,height=600, status=1, toolbar=1, scrollbars=1, menubar=1, resizable=1'))">
<img src="banner_small.png" border="0">Go To Site A

</a>

Hi Victor,

if you can't simply insert tracking code on the welcome.html page itself you can always trigger an Analytics event with a simple JavaScript onClick attribute to the A element - see for example [1, Mouse event handlers]
