    Advanced Google analytics with custom dimensions in flynax - some help needed

    Hi to everyone. Google analytics is very powerful tool (as you all probably know). I think we should use more of its power inside flynax. First thing to do, is to send custom dimensions to GA, by adding custom dimensions inside google analytics code.

    I was trying to make it work by adding next code, and its 90% works, however, I still cant figure out how to get translation (name) of fields country, country_level1, country_leve2, country_level3. Currently I can print only keys.

    I have tried this:

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    than to print I use:
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    but it doesn't work.

    Below is my full code.
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    Any help is appreciate.

    Custom dimensions could be very useful, for example if we want to build custom GA dashboard to specific dealer(s).

    Thanks

    Viktor (flynax support), provided solution for location fields:

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    Thanks Viktor!

    Now, next question for making this even more powerful is: how can we track some events and send them to GA?

    Which events? Well, for example:

    1. Click on "insert new listing" button event
    2. Click on "registration" button event
    3. Click on "search button" event
    4. Package selection event (MOST IMPORTANT)
    5. Click on Submit new listing form button event
    6. Click to show full phone number event (we first need to implement hiding full phone number)
    etc.

    Knowing some of this events (sending them to google analytics) we can create funnels , and, than we can, for example compare which medium (channel) like google adwords vs facebook ads, send us more buyers who buy commercial packages. IN short, we can solve biggest marketing dilemma: how to allocate my advertising budget?

    I think I cant explain enough how this is important for classifieds owner, and my opinion is that this should be one field where flynax should step more into with next upgrade.

    Thanks.

    OK, for anyone interested in GA, I suggest using google tag manager. Now I have custom dimensions, events and custom metrics. Fantastic statistics is now available. I even think that without of modifications to core files (or very small) we will be able to track all events.

    For setup:
    1. setup all dimensions and metricts in GA
    2. setup tags and events in google tag manager
    3. setup new variables in google tag manager that corresponds to your custom dimensions
    4. and add needed code from google tag manager to header.php in template.
    5. setup variables like:

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    Going to investigate further, to see which events can we track by default setup.
