Does anyone know if the following is possible with a framed page? Basically, we would frame a web page allow the user to navigate to third party sites. Every time the user clicks through to links within that other site, our framing site would somehow receive an AJAX click- through with the URL that was clicked on. In this way, we would be able to track where users go through the framed page. This could obviously be done by first pulling the third party site and replacing the links with re-directs that are then captured on click- through. However, I don't want to do that because (1) it's intensive, slow and could break links, and (2) it may upset the third party site and create a copyright issue. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

I'm no expert at this type of thing, but I would check to see if you can capture an onclick event from the frame/iframe. If you can't do that then I'm guessing you can't do it easily, although maybe you could put a transparent absolute-positioned block over the whole frame and capture the click then retransmit it through, but that might be really tricky and buggy.
