does anyone has example of trackclick() javascript function which calls JSP page to logging click on the server side. I am little confused, how the JSP will log the access log entry, since it only does if using redirect back to the user??? Thanks

Hi Sebastian, I finally made the script work having gone back to the code with a fine toothcomb. It turned out that Wordpress didn't like the directory reference to the php file called with Javascript - boy do I feel dumb. Anyway, all is working now! Thanks, and keep up the great work you do here. :)

Thanks Stephen. Probably your WordPress theme uses the onclick event. When a JS routine loops all A elements adding an onclick trigger without checking for the existence of onclick event code that would explain your problem. Also, some analytitics software and widgets providing blog stats add onclick code. Download all external JS files and scan them.
