to google-analytics-api - GA Data Export API
Hi, the samples for setting custom variables (_setCustomVar) show
values being set including spaces, however the data shows up escaped,
both in the web version of google analytics and via the api. I can't
see any guidelines about how data should be sent.
I tried escaping the strings before sending them, but google seems to
escape the already escaped string!
I set the following
And this is what is returned in the stats: Joe%20Bloggs
Surley the API supports sending variable values with spaces in? Even
the samples have spaces in. Now I could unescape the values returned
from the API, but this wouldnt work when using the web version!
Has anyone else overcome this problem?
