Good afternoon:

We have multiple sites but our main web presence uses Dot Net Nuke.  I didn't have a problem setting up Google Analytics (by inputting our tracking code in Google in our Admin Area)  The problem I'm having is trying to track all the downloads.   On our non Dot Net Nuke sites all I have to do is add the following in the head:

<script src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/tracker.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0,winName,features);
<script type="text/javascript">
var _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXXX-X']); //I changed this for the post
(function() {
var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);

And all clicks are tracked in the Events section of Google Analytics.  I thought all I had to do was set that up and go to the skin to link it all but I can't get it to work.  Does anyone have any idea 

This is js/tracker.js:

if (typeof jQuery != 'undefined') {
  jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    var filetypes = /\.(zip|exe|dmg|pdf|doc.*|xls.*|ppt.*|mp3|txt|rar|wma|mov|avi|wmv|flv|wav)$/i
    var baseHref = '';
    if (jQuery('base').attr('href') != undefined) baseHref = jQuery('base').attr('href');
    jQuery('a').on('click', function(event) {
      var el = jQuery(this);
      var track = true;
      var href = (typeof(el.attr('href')) != 'undefined' ) ? el.attr('href') :"";
      var isThisDomain = href.match(document.domain.split('.').reverse()[1] + '.' + document.domain.split('.').reverse()[0]);
      if (!href.match(/^ /i)) {
        var elEv = []; elEv.value=0, elEv.non_i=true;
        if (href.match(/^mailto\:/i)) {
          elEv.category = "email";
          elEv.action = "click";
          elEv.label = href.replace(/^mailto\:/i, '');
          elEv.loc = href;
        else if (href.match(filetypes)) {
          var extension = (/[.]/.exec(href)) ? /[^.]+$/.exec(href) : undefined;
      elEv.category = "download";
          elEv.action = "click-" + extension[0];
          elEv.label = href.replace(/ /g,"-");
          elEv.loc = baseHref + href;
        else if (href.match(/^https?\:/i) && !isThisDomain) {
          elEv.category = "external";
          elEv.action = "click";
          elEv.label = href.replace(/^https?\:\/\//i, '');
          elEv.loc = href;
        else if (href.match(/^tel\:/i)) {
          elEv.category = "telephone";
          elEv.action = "click";
          elEv.label = href.replace(/^tel\:/i, '');
          elEv.loc = href;
        else track = false;
        if (track) {
          _gaq.push(['_trackEvent', elEv.category.toLowerCase(), elEv.action.toLowerCase(), elEv.label.toLowerCase(), elEv.value, elEv.non_i]);
          if ( el.attr('target') == undefined || el.attr('target').toLowerCase() != '_blank') {
            setTimeout(function() { location.href = elEv.loc; }, 400);
            return false;
