How would I replicate this line of code using utag.link()? s.tl(this,'e','Link Name') I specifically want to know how to set the link type? Everytime I call utag.link the pe parameter in pixel's querystring is set to lnk_o and no matter what I do I cannot change it to lnk_e. In general, do you have code samples using utag.link() for sitecatalyst? I find bits and pieces in this forum but it never really able to get a full picture of what I can do.

Hi Brian, the way this would look is like this: utag.link({link_name:"Exit Link Name",link_type:"exit link"}); Where the link_type can be set to "exit link" or "download link". If you leave it blank, it will always default to an internal link ('o'). Make sure you have link_name and link_type set up as variables in the Data Sources tab in Tealium.

Andrew, if I get this right you're not using any extensions. Correct? Just calling utag.link with variables link_name and link_type should be sufficient.

Hi David, This could be done with extensions for on-click events using our jQuery onhandler extension (https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/Tealium-iQ/jQuery-onHandler-Extension-jQuery-v1-7-and-up/ta-p/986...). But if you do have s.tl calls on your site that you can easily replace with our utag.link call then I would recommend taking that route. Does this help?

Hi James, this helps partially, but Adobe keeps registering the link name as "no link_name". You can find my script on http://users.telenet.be/analytics/test/custom-links.html I've aliased both aa_link_name (to link_name) and aa_link_type (to link_type). You can find the request to Adobe below (click on "klik hier" text). Strangely, pev2 gets the value no%20link_name... http://upc.d2.sc.omtrdc.net/b/ss/upctelenet20test/1/H.27.4/s59924236803781?AQB=1&ndh=1&t=16%2F2%2F20...

Hi David, Give something like this a shot where you use link_name and link_type specifically. utag.link({link_name:'abc',link_type:'exit link'});
