My goal is to track all the links and images clicked, viewed and downloaded.
I noticed on this forum there is an option to upload files and images,
next to the file/image reads (10.9 KB, 1 views)
Any help here would be great!
In this particular case though, I believe it is all done on the server side. Like if you view the file, the number of views doesn't update until after the page is reloaded, right? If so, it's all on the server side - in this case probably mediated via PHP and a database as a part of the vBulletin forum package.
Cool, so it's safer to go with an ajax and php link/image tracking type system.
Thanks for the clarity!
I said nothing about safety. Anytime you expose the server to client side scripting there is always at least some potential for someone to gain some control over the server. Security issues around that interface should be considered.
