    I am trying to track the external site in which people are being referred from. I tried this method which always seems to be a page on my domain.


    Is there a way to better save the referral data?

    Take a look at this http://elementdesignllc.com/2011/11/contact-form-7-get-parameter-from-url-into-form-plugin/

    Its plugin addon for contact form 7, it will grab any URL PARAMETER you have like http://www.YOURSITE.com/?aff_id=JOE

    So if you have incoming traffic leads that are filling out your contact form 7, you will use the info as shown in the plugin I just sent

    It will grab the aff_id=JOE part from the url


    I use it and it works as long as the AFF ID is shown in the url upon submission of the contact form 7.

    Interesting, this does something similar to the link I provided but just grabs a param from the url. I want the whole thing.

    The link I provided does what I need it to do, its just I want to alter how it works so that the data it grabs is more valuable. It seems to me that sometimes the value of the referring site gets overridden as they navigate through pages. IE:

    google search click comes to site param is set > next page is contact form > we would get the to see where they came from.

    ... but if the google searcher goes through a few pages on site first, it seemed to always have the 'last page' they visited in that field.

    I added a condition to test "if referring site has my domain in it, do not set the value of this variable" and that helped a lot. however I programmed that in coldfusion and I guess need a little help trying to implement that logic test in combination with the current code that would maybe work.
