How does it work?
Once the modifications is installed, Gravity Insights puts a lightweight beacon (similar to Google Analytics) on every Vanilla generated webpage in your forum. In addition, Gravity Insights has custom hooks that initiate asynchronous server-to-server calls between your Vanilla forum and the Gravity Insights servers. These hooks allow Gravity Insights to track all the things that standard analytics software can’t track (like new threads, new replies, new member registrations, etc.).
