Google Analytics (yet again... but should be quick)

Hopefully this is a quick answer. I am using FoxyShop with v1 of FoxyCart.

I (think) have set up analytics correctly per this:

FoxyShop uses a nice lightbox wrapping the cart when you add items to it. However, the checkout link is rendering like this:
<a class="fc_link_nav fc_link_forward fc_cart_checkout" 
target="_top" style="opacity: 1; display: inline-block; zoom: 1; ">Checkout</a>

NOTE: the URL to checkout is /checkout.php but I have the Goal funnel in GA configured: /cart > /checkout per the instructions.

Is that going to fail to record properly in the Goal / Funnel?

That Checkout link is getting rendered by FoxyCart right?

    No, you should be fine. The code you pasted into the cart is actually telling Analytics "hey, trigger an event for landing on this page" (even though you really didn't). At least I think that's how it's working.
  • Thanks! Yep, all is well. Finally got the numbers in and it is working as desired. I was initially concerned it wouldn't match /checkout.php against my goal step url of /checkout. But it seems to. Yay!
