More links Munchkin won't track (unless you tell it to) - Part 1 of 2

Blog Post created by Sanford Whiteman on Jan 6, 2018

You probably don't realize that Munchkin ignores clicks, by default and by design, on 6 different types of links:

  1. (1) links whose destination appears to be a hash (fragment) on the current page:
  2. (2) mailto: links
  3. (3) javascript: links
  4. (4) AREA links
  5. (5) links with the special class mchNoDecorate (more on this another time)
  6. (6) links that aren't, well, links (like clickable DIVs, an IMG not wrapped in an A, etc)

With all those exceptions, chances are good that you have at least one prominently featured link that is not tracked.

In an unscientific survey of 10 sites running Munchkin (grabbed out of my browser history), 7 had an untracked link on their home page (and of course this is about more than home pages!).
