Prevent double tracking

If you run a multi page site (e.g. main page + archive pages) and you would like to place a tracking code on all your pages, all you have to do is to enable this feature to prevent double tracking surfers who are switching between pages. When done, you can safely place tracking code to all your pages.

This feature is set to Prevent double tracking by default and we advise you to keep it enabled.

Customizing and renaming TE3 modules

We strongly encourage you to customize and rename TE3 modules and make TE3 on each of your sites more unique.

You can customize cookie names, outgoing file name (out.php), thumb image directory name, Toplist directory name and out.php parameters.

Geo IP database

Determine your visitor's country based on their IP address. Geo IP database by MaxMind can be auto updated every 6th day in the month (General settings / Main) or you can do it manually at any given moment - simply click Update in the “Geo IP database” section.

Pop-up settings

  1. Effect on closing pop-ups:

    • Fade-out: fade-out effect on closing pop-up windows adds a nice warm touch to the admin interface. There should be no performance issues, unless you are using a really old machine. In that case, you still have an option to disable it.

    • Disabled

  2. Dragging and resizing pop-ups:

    • Normal: normal or “realtime rendering” of the pop-up windows while you are dragging or resizing them is much more appealing than “dragging and resizing by border”. There is a downside though. If you're using a slow web browser on a slow computer, it can perform slower than the other option (By border). We can't do much about your computer, but we can highly recommend you “Google Chrome” as a browser of choice. Plain and simply, we haven't seen any other browsers out there with a better javascript performance.

    • By border: instead of real-time rendering of the pop-up window, you can drag or resize just the border. After mouse button is released, pop-up window renders instantly. If you are using Internet Explorer, By border option is selected by default, because javascript rendering in IE is awful.
