mfReferral: Give your visitors a personal message

mfReferral mfReferral allows you to display a custom message by checking from which referral website the visitor came. This way, you'll have a more interactive & personal site.

By doing this, you can kindly ask your visitors to do something, like give you a digg when they came from Digg.com. Ask them if they found what they were looking for, if they came from Google.

Do you want to get your users to do something or just give them a personal message? mfReferral is your solution!

Tips & testing

The module works best when placed in a module position directly above your content. This way, your users will see the message before they read the actual article. Also, remove the module name in the module details to give it a better look.

If you want to test the module, simply install RefControl. This Firefox extension allows you to set your own refferal ID.

If you enter custom websites, only enter the domain. Don't add the http:// prefix, or the subdomain. Also, keep in mind that the base URL of the images always is the directory where mfReferral is installed.
