comment How to track opens and pageviews in PDFs?
Thanks. I already knew how to track links to and from a PDF, but I was looking for answers abouy views. It's amazing how much you can know from a click in an html file and how little you can find out from a PDF.

comment How to track opens and pageviews in PDFs?
Thanks for your interest. We have a free 40 page paper printed magazine and we allow people to download and read a lowres version, built from the PDF we send to the press. Yes, we are considering other options, including PDF online viewers/embedding in PDF html but that's out of the scope of this question. About privacy, as I said in the question we just need to know how many reads per document, not who has read it.

comment How to interpret Events from Unique Events in Google Analytics?
Try seeing it in the classic Google Analytics. I personally have found a few bugs with this new version. If it doesn't work, try using 3 parameters: _gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Downloads', 'Extension', 'something']); Maybe there's a bug with two...

comment A method to edit html email templates easily
Although I agree that it sucks not being able to change provider, it's not good at all that to solve a problem you have to change to a specific provider or product, specially because those are not free (as in freedom, not just price). I'll test the html rich text editors, but my fear is that they are made to change the code to standard html. Html e-mail is just the opposite of standard html. You need to add redundancy and avoid specific tags to maintain compatibility with all mail clients.

comment A method to edit html email templates easily
Yes, in the end it might be the best solution. Yes there's a web server and users know how to use FTP. Adding an upload form with ImageMagic resizing and compressing is a good idea.

comment A method to edit html email templates easily
The reason I say I can not change the mail provider is that this client is a local delegation of an International company. More than 20 other national offices use it, and change implies training and migrating more than a hundred databases. But your answer may fit to other people reading this page.

comment Picture Gallery & Message Forum
As you want simplicity and adding independent Open Source Galleries and Forums can become even more complex, I suggest you check if Flickr galleries (example: flickr.com/groups/blackwhite/pool/show ) and Facebook or Twitter streams.

comment Picture Gallery & Message Forum
If you want to incorporate a simple message forum and gallery in your website, probably the best is to find forum and gallery modules for your content management system. There's some great Gallery and Forum modules for Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla and other. Do you use a CMS? If not, consider moving your website to one. You will have slightly more work now, but certainly less hassle later.
