XF 1.4 Link Proxy purpose


Active member
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.

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.

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.
