    What referrer log?

    Things like Google Analytics and other similar web stat systems maintain a log of all pages which referred a visitor to their site.

    So technically if you're in a PM on your site called "I hate XenForo" and you click on a URL taking you to XenForo.com, in theory they can see that they had a visitor referred from http://8thos.com/conversations/i-hate-xenforo.12345.

    I did not see your code, but this can be done with a simple template edit too.
    No need to take the performance hit that comes at XF with each single addon install. :)

    But I agree. In conversations the title should not be in the URL. This is why we changed that at our board some time ago.

    Your addon makes this very simple for all XF users, so thank you for it!

    It cannot be done with a template edit. If you believe it can, I would be more than happy for you to share that here as an alternative for those people who have no need to take the non-existent performance hit that comes with this add-on.

    I like it. How about extending the addon to include support for forums that are not publicly accessible, like staff forums?

    A lot of the time, that goes without saying.

    Will it affect in a large forums and conversation performances?
