Referer Plugins (7 posts)

    I've poked around and not found anything that would do this.

    I am looking for a plugin that will track external sites linking to posts and dispaly them, similar to how youtube.com video pages do.

    That way if a forum or blog links to the page, it will list them as a referer to the page and list how many hits are sent. I would like this to be done on a page per page basis if possible.

    anyone know of such a plugin?

    You can try the plugin listed on this page called the CG-Referrer plugin if you wish, it should cover what you're looking for:

    thanks devilmaycry,

    i just tried setting that up and the user docs and such just are a nightmare. not a userfriendly setup at all. :(

    The upcoming version will be a little bit easier, but if you had problems with the docs please let me know so I can continue to improve them! ;)

    The 'complexity' of CG-Referrer stems from it actually handling multiple roles of checking, blocking, and recording visitors, and then administration of the stored data. It's doing a lot. :) But I want to make it more user-friendly, so any feedback as to what would make it so would be much appreciated.

    Extract cg-referrer-plugin.php to your root wp-content/plugins/ folder.

    Extract the cg-plugins folder as a subdirectory of your wp-content/plugins/ folder.

    Go to your WP Admin Plugin page, enable CG-Referrer.

    Click on the new CGRef Menu item.

    ... and realize that what you see there is months behind what I'm working on (unfortuantely haven't reached a 'safe' release point as yet given my low amount of time to work AND maintain things...).

    But if you like the current CG-Referrer, you'll definitely be even happier with all the enhanced admin features in the next minor upgrade, hopefully in a few weeks.

    The next major upgrade will likely still be months off, but will have a completely revamped interface, and control of options from the admin screen rather than setting PHP variables in wp-config or somewhere...

    Feel free to contact me if you have any Qs! ;)
