We are trying to track an event, each time somebody clicks a certain link on our site.  The problem is i just cannot get it to fire.  

We are using the following script :

<script type="text/javascript">
  	jQuery('#multiview').on('click', function() { 
	  	window._pq = window._pq || [];
   	 _pq.push(['track','AppBegin']);
  	});
</script>

Open in new window


The link is attached to an Image button in our footer
<a href="https://intelliapp2.driverapponline.com/c/hunt" target="_blank" onclick="ga('send', 'event', 'Apply', 'Click', 'apply-now-link', 1);" id="multiview"><img src="https://hunttransportationjobs.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/ButtonHunt.png" width="200" height="100" border="0" /></a>

Open in new window


Our website is https://hunttransportationjobs.com   and the image is the CLICK HERE - Apply Now Image link in the footer.  

Could some of you JQuery peeps have a look at the code, see if you can help me with this?

Are you sure it is not firing - or are you just not getting the data.

Firstly the code you posted is commented out in the source - it appears you have changed to using classes - although I don't think that is the problem - just noting.

Secondly, have you tried putting console.log() statements in the code to see if it is firing.
Put one after the onclick
<a href="https://intelliapp2.driverapponline.com/c/hunt" target="_blank" onclick="ga('send', 'event', 'Apply', 'Click', 'apply-now-link', 1); console.log('On Click Fired')" id="multiview"><img src="https://hunttransportationjobs.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/ButtonHunt.png" width="200" height="100" border="0" /></a>

Open in new window

And one in your jQuery
<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		window._pq = window._pq || [];
console.log('Document ready fired - setting one() click');
	$('.multiview').one('click', function() {
console.log('one() fired');
    	_pq.push(["track", "AppBegin"]);
  		}); 
  	});
</script>

Open in new window


Check the console after clicking on the link to see what messages are output.

Excellent thank you.   Yes I forgot i had posted the code in the question,  and was testing a little.  I get one() fired. So all works.
