I have a question about including the referring URL parameters when using an Adobe Target Classic Redirect Offer.
I’m testing a redirect offer and have checked the option to include the referring url. The problem is that when the referring parameter values are passed our colon symbols are being expressed as %3A. Is there a setting that we can use that would keep the : instead of the %3A? Note that we often also switch from one subdomain to another as our test content is on a different Content Management System.
As Mihnea is showing if you use an HTML offer and add a script to handle the re-direct you can preserve your non-URL-encoded colons. Here is a sample offer that will simply change the subdomain from 'www' to 'www2' in the url for the redirect. Hence, everything in the path and query portion will be maintained as is.
Thanks for your reply. Will this work for dynamic parameters? That is to say that ?utm_campaign= is not a fixed value, and &gclid= is unique to each inboud paid search link. We always have 4 colon separators though e.g. ?utm_campaign=CHANNEL:PRODUCT:CAMPAIGNNAME:DOMAIN
