Hello everyone,

I currently have a page where users enter data in a field and when they click on 'execute', the system runs an internal script and presents them the results.

When 'execute' is clicked, an advertisement window pops up.

Here is what I am after:

1) The popup window to be in the background so it doesn't pop in front of the current window
2) Add Google Analytics outgoing Link Tracking code so I can track through Google Analytics how many people got the popup advertising window.

For the first requirement, here is the portion of the file which performs the popup function and needs to be modified according to my first request (1):
<?php
  if ($ok) {?>
<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload=function() {
  var w = window.open("http://advertising_website","_blank");
  if (!w) alert('Sorry, you have blocked popups')
}
</script>
<?php } ?>


For the second requirement, here is the GA code that I'd normally place in a hyper link within my php files. This needs to be embedded so onclick (when the person clicks on 'execute', its run:

Analytics Outgoing Link Tracking
<a onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','Home','click','http://customer_website.com']);" href="http://customer_website.com" target="_blank"> Vist now!</a>


Please let me know if more information is required.

Thank you.
