Tip for using SWFAddress and GoogleAnalytics together

March 4, 2007

Just a quick tip to save you a few minutes if you plan to use SWFAddress (as far as I know currently the best browser-back-button solution for flash) and GoogleAnalytics (for tracking) in a flash project:

That’s it :)

    I think this is a general problem with getURL() and ExternalInterface. I had the same problem, but not with GoogleAnalatics. I just tried to call a javascript function after an ExternalInterface call. It didn’t work. I just became an empty Window. With ExternalInterface instead of getURL it works fine.

    I’m glad I came upon this site during my swfaddress research. I normally wouldn’t comment but you are one of a few people who have posted ANY type of tips on swfaddress. Someone should post a real nice tutorial.

    Thanks for this post!
    I had a very weird problem with IE and ExternalInterface (using SWFobject though): after closing the browser window, new blank windows started to appear all over the screen. Using getURL() (only for IE) helped.

    Great tip. I found out that this is only a problem in Internet Explorer, not in Firefox/Safari on my mac. – just in case some of you are confused!

    you saved my week-end with this comment… thanx a lot and “danke schön” also (viel mals).

    So do you need to have your urchin UI js code in the page that contains the swf?
    How does SWFAddress know what UI number to use for tracking?
