EmailTrack

This simple PHP class outputs a ghost image and uses PDO & SQLite to track whether or not an email has been seen.

REQUIREMENTS

  • PHP 5.3+
  • PDO_SQLITE driver

CONCEPT

Wherever you send an email that needs to be tracked, we’ll just inject an image that ACTUALLY loads a PHP file on our server. The PHP class that is requested in the <img... tag, takes $_GET parameters, logs them in the SQLite database, then serves up an actual image.

PARAMETERS

$message .= '<img src="/src/blank.php?log=true&subject='.urlencode($subject).'&email='.urlencode($to).'" alt="EmailTrack"/>';

| Key | Value | |-------------|---------------------| | ?log | true | | &subject | urlencode($subject) | | &email | urlencode($to) |

INSTALLATION

  • Full instructions and examples are located in the `examples` folder.
  • The class file resides in `src/blank.php`
  • You may need to edit paths to the SQLite database/gif in the class settings.
  • SQLite databases can pose a security risk, and may be downloaded with a direct link! Please take precautions to secure the file. You can so this with Apache .htaccess or by making the file hidden.
