URL statistics for external URL's?

Postby robinscurr » 2:58pm, Fri 07 Feb, 2014

I'm new to phpList, so bare with me ...

We would like to track URL click statistics in our campaigns but the URL's would be external to the server hosting phpList? Is there a way to make this happen? I don't see the way to do it ...

Thanks!

the way tracking works is that phplist replaces the urls in the email to a "touchback" url.

when the user clicks on the link in the email, the link goes back to the phplist server, registers the click, and immediately forwards the user to the external, original link that you want the user to go to.

all you have to do is specify the external link you want the user to go to, and phplist takes care of the rest.
