PHPList Enable Delivery Reports

PHPList by default doent supports Email Delivery / Clicks report. This is urgent in case of bulk mails. and here is the steps to Enable statistics on PHP List

Go to your PHP LIst Home directory

Edit ./config/config.php

go to this section

# Click tracking
# If you set this to 1, all links in your emails will be converted to links that
# go via phplist. This will make sure that clicks are tracked. This is experimental and
# all your findings when using this feature should be reported to mantis
# for now it’s off by default until we think it works correctly

(change this line to define(‘CLICKTRACK’,1); )

# Click track, list detail
# if you enable this, you will get some extra statistics about unique users who have clicked the
# links in your messages, and the breakdown between clicks from text or html messages.
# However, this will slow down the process to view the statistics, so it is
# recommended to leave it off, but if you’re very curious, you can enable it

(Enable this if you need tracking of clicks)

Retart PHPList by refreshing the Page

you will see a link next to messages named statistis


this will result in drill down option as below
