View Full Version : Sending Variables with 'getURL'

01-23-2007, 04:20 PM
Howdy, Everyone!

I inserted this code into my banner for a campaign that I am running. The unique URL sends a value.

This is what the code looks like. Pretty darn simple:

on (release) {
getURL("http://www.mywebsite.com/go.php?id=LJCG68", "_blank");

Does this seem right to everyone? I wouldn't think there would be any issue with this. The URL works fine, but the values do not seem to be sent properly....

Nevermind...problem wasn't with the code :rolleyes:

Thanks anyway!

It'd be great if you could tell us what the problem was... ;)

Ah....well, what this URL does is sends a unique variable to a webpage so that when people fill out the 'request for information' form, it automatically creates a lead in our database and places it in a unique campaign rather than a generic lead pool.

However....these leads, I learned are only processed every 10 minutes by our server. Thus, the delays I was experiencing caused me to think something was wrong with my code, which there wasn't.

Cheers, everyone!

Gotcha... Hope it did not take that long to figure that delay... I know how it can be to my hair... :D

Nope. Didn't take long at all. I have dedicated programming resources in India that take care of most of this silliness...but sometimes communication breaks down.

Thanks for the quick response though. It is good to see actionscript.org is still going strong. I have not been back here for a while. :)
