Is it possible to have this on a per forum basis ?

I only have a couple of forums out of 100+ that I need to anonymize

Thanks

After uninstalling this product, it appears that the revised URL with the "redirector.php" remains intact, which is seems to negate the link from working altogether.

That should not happen - try clearing your post cache.

I am not certain, but I believe I may have tried that. It had only revised ten URL references, so I searched these out and manually changed them in the end. Someone should test this in order to be certain, as it appeared to me that new posts were being changed forever in lieu of on the fly. The mod was performing as intended, but for me it was interfering with other modes (particularly AME).

Hey Dismounted,
I understand what this mod does but would you be able to explain why it is important to have this mod installed?

What are the benefits?

Nobody can see in their Stats that you linked to one of their Articles.

Also explained in the 3.6 thread, it basically removes the referrer header from HTTP requests (geeky tech stuff , don't stress). Some sites track the referrer header, to see who has come from where to access their sites.
