    I have looked but can't find an explanation of what exact the Link Proxy does and how it benefits a forum.

    I use the Image Proxy and it is great for a performance boost, but I don't want to enable the link proxy without having an idea of what it's purpose and benefit is.

    Thanks!

    It's mostly for logging/analysis purposes, especially with the referrer tracking in 1.5.

    Is it possible to turn it on per node, or is there an add-on for that? There are a few areas we'd like to track, but not the whole forum.

    Ok, so just for me to get insights into what links are being followed and trends related to those links right?

    It's a global on-off.

    It's not going to be as detailed as with a dedicated analytics service, but it will at least give you some details of the most popular links and (if referrer tracking is enabled) the page that is causing the clicks.

    Thanks. I'll have to play with it a bit as a way to check up on my affiliate stats... ;)
