Lack of interest Help us with tracking: Add campaign to the subscription links

A lot of us use Google Analytics for tracking. It is possible to specify in a URL the campaign that was run, and that can be used inside the tool for filtering the traffic.

Right now, for example, I don't know the % effectiveness of the subscriptions, I do not know if the emails are getting me traffic or if everybody is ignoring them.

This is also, really easy! Just, in the URL generated, instead of, e.g.
Code:
xenforo.com/community/threads/change-thread-title.3771/
Some params need to be added
Code:
xenforo.com/community/threads/change-thread-title.3771/?utm_source=subscription&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=thread.3771
And that's pretty much it. This can be further customized but most users would probably just need the default behaviour.
