If you're using Google Analytics, you can use click tracking: <https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/eventTrackerGuide> I recently setup click tracking on lightbox open, close and various other modal window bits/pieces for a metered pay wall system. For example, within the lightbox/modal window "open" method: [code] // Track this lightbox instance: window._gaq.push([ '_trackEvent', // Method. 'Paymeter Lightbox', // Group. 'Lightbox OPEN group ' + count_txt, // Append count to "action" text. count_txt + ' OPEN event' // Prepend count to "label" text. ]); [/code] The advantage to using a common tool like analytics is that it's got a ton of powerful ways to analyze the data. Not sure the goal of your project, but I thought I would mention. Cheers, M -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
