I am a complete newbie when it comes to using Google Analytics, so I am finding it fascinating to track activity since I installed it. One thing I can't work out how to do is track events in particular channels, eg how many views, posts, likes, new threads etc (so I can report just on those channels)? Has anyone set this up and could give me some tips?

So, take this with a grain of salt, since I'm not our GA expert. But I think if you set up a set of events like this `_trackEvent("Moot: load", "Setting Up")` `_trackEvent("Moot: post", "Setting Up")` And that would track each "view" of the `Setting Up` channel on this forum, and each post submission and reply on the channel.
