How The Enhanced JS Redirect Feature Works

In ThirstyAffiliates 3.3.0 we introduced a brand new feature called the Enhanced JS Redirect which is now the default redirection type in ThirstyAffiliates for new users.

Why Use This Over The Server-Side Redirection Methods?

To be clear, there’s nothing wrong with the server-side redirect methods. But we believe in innovation and staying ahead of the curve.

The Enhanced JS Redirect type is the best of the best.

If you want:

  1. Better security
  2. Faster redirects
  3. More accurate statistics

Then you should consider swapping your sites over to the Enhanced JS Redirect method. You can find it in ThirstyAffiliates->Settings.

When Does It Still Use The Old Method?

For direct visits on the link or clicks on your link that happen elsewhere. If you’ve shared your cloaked link in emails or PDFs or anything like that, these will use the server-side redirection method.

The only other time it will use the server-side redirection method is if the javascript based redirect fails for whatever reason. We coded this new feature defensively so that there would always be fallbacks if it should fail for whatever reason.
