error in ecommerce transaction tracking code?
3 test transactions - seemingly all's correct - but no info in analytics?

Digged thru analytics help and a few support forums on this topic - still can't find the reason why my transaction data is not showing.

Here's some of the source code for the order confirmation page


$name = $_SESSION['name'];
<title>Order Processed</title>
DEAR <?=$name?>!
CLICK <a href="http://www.#*$!#*$!#*$!.com">HERE</a> TO RETURN TO HOME

<script src="
https://ssl.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" type="text/javascript">
<script type="text/javascript">
_uacct = "UA-#*$!XX-XX";

<form style="display:none;" name="utmform">
<textarea id="utmtrans">UTM:T<?=$order_amount?> </textarea>
<script type="text/Javascript">


I made 3 test transactions yesterday and none of those has yet been
Does it have to do with the time lag for ecommerce transaction tracking?

also php adds <input type="hidden" name="PHPSESSID"
value=SESSIONIDVALUE /> to the form making it smth like

<form style="display:none;" name="utmform"><input type="hidden"
name="PHPSESSID" value="92dp0djftjsq07o2lcdhpbg8l2" />
<textarea id="utmtrans">UTM:T69.99 </textarea>

can this somehow keep __utmSetTrans() from working correctly?

I don't use Urchin, but if I did use Urchin, I'd assume there would be a setting that allowed me to exclude my own IP address from the stats. If I did do that on set up, that might be a problem for you now?

If urchin can't do that, then that's why I use a different package :)

Also - I only started learning PHP last week, so the rest of it I havn't a clue with... if you don't get jou in the tracking and logging forum, I'll bump this post over to the php forum. I'm sure there's one of those here somewhere...

Thanks for the reply Receptional.

I did 2 fake orders from my IP and 1 from an IP address in a different country.

There is a filter in urchin for own IPs but it's not set up for this account.

I will keep posting this stuff in google groups and analytics support.

Thanks for your help
