I’m using mailjet as my newsletter server. All of the URLs I include in my newsletter are substituted to a mailjet URL, so a click on a link in newsletter goes through the mj site, and is then redirected to the URL I had specified.
I can turn this behaviour off by modifying the anchor tag: and adding this “rel” tag. Then the only URL substitution I have is via the newsletter’s own URL sub, which are URLs on my site. I’m assuming that the newsletter plugin is ignoring this addition, as it will always modify the URLs to its own redirect (but these are at least URLs that are local to my site, so that’s fine really).
So…, I’m wondering if there is a setting where the rel=”notrack” can be added by default to any link that I create in the newsletter’s “Add a Link” button on the authoring page for a new newsletter?
I’ve had some concerns expressed from my users about clicking on links that are not to my site, which I can certainly understand, so would like to fix this.
Alternatively, if anyone knows a better mail server that won’t do this substitution, I’d happily change. I have a low volume of usage, so I’m not inclined to have to pay much (if anything) for the service, but don’t mind a few bucks a month if I get a cleaner service.
Thanks very much for your help, and thanks for the plugin.
