gaAddons v2.1.0 open beta!

Update: gaAddons v2 is available at

I would like to invite everyone to get a glimpse at gaAddons v2.1.0!

If you were familiar with v1.0 or v2.0, you will certainly notice a major face lift to the website and a more GA-like design. The Documentation section has been extensively reworked to provide much better information. Please have a look and share your thoughts!

Among the new features in gaAddons v2.1.0:

  • A bunch of minor big fixes & enhancements...
  • Now seamlessly integrates into _gaq standard push() calls!
  • Introduction of _formAnalysis!
  • Optimized and reviewed the code structure
  • _trackDownloads, _trackOutbounds, _trackMailTos are now deprecated in favor of the same calls without the trailing "s" (_trackDownload, _trackOutbound, _trackMailTo)
  • Since gaAddons is a true extension of the _gaq object, there is no need to have the "tracker" option anymore

If you want to give it a try:

  • The GA Debugger extension for Chrome is causing havoc to gaAddons - see Troubleshooting for details.
I haven't been so excited since the early days of WASP when I initially solved the challenge of a generic web analytics tags debugger!
