Also, is there a way to prevent the Tag Companion and Universal Data Object windows from populating the link extension as well? They are showing up as external links. Actually, now that I think about it, that is what the "Javascript Variables599" item is. That is the Tag Companion link for the "Javascript Variables (599)". So, I just need a way to suppress the Tag Companion from firing through the Link Tracker.
