This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.

Enabling click statistics

To enable the click statistics of the Direct Mail module, enable the following checkbox in the "Module configuration” function:


This will register all links in the email messages and count all clicks on them.

Note that form url's are not directed through the jumpurl feature but rather directly to the target page.

A nice trick is to place a little clear-gif image in your HTML template and put the parameter dmailerping=”1” in the tag. This will force the capture function to set the url of this image absolute through the jumpurl registration. This means in other words that when this mail is opened it will be registered. This is an additional feature to the regular feature which registers all links clicked in the mail.


<img src="typo3conf/ext/direct_mail/Resources/Public/Icons/dmailerping.gif" width="1" height="1" dmailerping="1" />

Note that the result of the jumpurl setting on the above HTML line is that the src attribute will be replaced by one that refers to the address of a script. Such attribute in HTML content of email messages may be disabled by SPAM filtering software.

If the jumpurl_tracking_privacy is enabled in the configuration, then you might want to use &no_jumpurl=1 for link, which should not be replaced by a jump URL.

Adding third party tracking images

When includeMedia is enabled all added images are embedded. Put attribute do_not_embed="1" to the images to prevent it from being embedded.
