Macros for 3rd Party Ad Tags

alt text

We support a handful of macros that you can use when serving 3rd party ad tags. They are:

Cache Buster: ##cache_buster## This will add a random integer when the code is served and helps 3rd party tags prevent caching.

Click Tracker: ##click_tracker## This is a non-redirecting click tracker (i.e. when the url is called by the 3rd party ad server it succeeds silently).

Click Tracker w/Redirect: ##click_redir##http://actualurl.com This is a redirecting click tracker (i.e. you would use it when you actually need us to both track the click AND redirect the user to an actual URL).

Width: ##width## This simply inserts the width.

Height: ##height## Same as width above, we simple insert the height.

Click Tracker w/ Redirect Malformed URL: ##illegal_thirdparty_malformed_url_click_redir## Used sparingly, this redirect is used in special situations where the redirect URL isn't properly formatted.
