This Week in devot:ee #57 - February 21, 2013

February 21, 2013

This week we added developer-specific Google Analytics tracking, removed the confirmation screens for logging in and out, and added nine new add-ons.

Developer-Specific Google Analytics Tracking

Developers can now get analytics for their add-ons, storefront page, and support forums. There is a new field in your developer settings where you can add your tracking code (e.g., "UA-XXXXX-XX"). We'll automatically put that code on the relevant pages. We suggest making a new property within Google Analytics for tracking this data. If you like this feature, you can thank Michael Rog (@michaelrog) for staying on our case for a long time to get it implemented. Thanks for helping us test out the feature, Michael!

Logged In/Out Confirmation Messages, Begone!

We got rid of the logged-in and logged-out confirmation screens. There are a number of add-ons you can use to do this, but we went with our own because we knew exactly what we wanted to do and we like to "code our own" on some things. Logging in is so much more enjoyable now.
