I purchased a script called 'Link Tracker' a few months ago and I cannot get a response from the company I brought it from and their web site has been down for some time now.
Basically the script adds to a log every time a external web link is clicked from within my site and it is meant to send an email to the owner of that web link.
The logging part works ok, but I cannot get it to send out the email.
There is an admin page where the links and their corresponding email addresses are entered.
It also emails my the previous days stats, which does seem to work ok.
I don't know if the problem lies in the perl code for the customers sendmail part?
See demo admin page - [url removed, login to view]
My remote web hosting company (not the host above) have advised that the sendmail address for their servers requires it be linked to one of my email accounts for security, so in the [url removed, login to view] file (there are a number of files that make up the script) I end up with a couple of lines like this -
$mailprog = qq|/usr/sbin/sendmail -fwebmaster@ [url removed, login to view]|;
$myemail = qq|tracker-stats@ [url removed, login to view]|;
Note: mydomainname being my own domain name being put in the script and no spaces after the @ sign!
Here is an exaple of how the links intergrate into my own site -
[url removed, login to view]://[url removed, login to view]
ie. so I just have to add [url removed, login to view] to the front of all the links I wish to be logged/tracked.
I am either after help with getting the script working as it should do, but with the possible added feature of showing the referrer links on the same page as the 'view logs'/'full list' page.
A complete rewrite of the script to do the same thing as it should do already, but again with the the feature of showing referrer links in a column next to the visited links.
I can provide more detail if required, if I have not given enough detail.
I have just been advised that there are two files, admin.cgi and tracker.cgi that I've been told are encoded, probably encoded for faster parsing?
There will be quite a large amount of clicks that this script will need to handle!
This is an example of one of those files, less the banner ad at the top!
Please take a look!
All the other files that make up the script are readable.
I have just received confirmation from my remote web hosting company that for the sendmail address, I do require a before the @ sign.
eg. $mailprog = qq|/usr/sbin/sendmail -fwebmaster@ mydomainname.com|;
Having done this, the customer emailing part of the script still will not send any emails?
elance site would not show backward slash in the additiin above.
ie. I do require a 'backward slash' before the @ sign
Maybe, what do you think? Another additional feature added to the script other than the referrer showing on the same page as the clicked links, would be a process where on the out going emails to the customers, there could be a removal link at the bottom for them to click and be automatically removed if they wished to be?
The current setup, would require a tick to be put next to the particular email/link in the admin area for them to be removed. Obviously leaving a manual option would be good as well.
