When a redirected URL is visited it will be logged and you can view these logs by clicking the Log item in the top menu.
The logs will contain the following information about a visitor:
- URL visited
- Target URL the visitor is redirected to
- Time of visit
- Visitor’s browser agent
- Referrer (not always available)
- IP address
Some information is only visible by hovering over the row.
Log entries can be deleted by clicking the delete link, by using the checkboxes and the Bulk Action dropdown, or by clicking the Delete All button at the bottom of the page.
Geo IP information
If you wish to see more information about the visitor you can click on the IP address, or click on ‘Geo Info’ that appears when you hover over the URL. This will show additional information about where the IP address is located:
Note that full information may not be available for all IP addresses.
User Agent information
If you wish to see more information about the visitor’s user agent – the browser or client used to make the request – then click on ‘Agent Info’ that appears when you hover over the URL. The user agent can often be used to determine if the visitor is human, or a bot or other automated tool.
Note that full information may not be available for all user agents.
Under the log table you will find the following actions:
- Export – export the logs to CSV
- RSS – an RSS feed for the log (see the RSS Token on the options page)
- Delete All – delete all log entries matching the current table parameters
If you have a lot of logs you may find it useful to use the search facility to find a particular entry.
Customising the display
You can change what information is displayed by using the display dropdown. Pick from the pre-defined list, or use a custom display.
