Referral Codes/ID with Buttons


#1

Just curious - I know you can include referral codes in the forms using hidden fields, and I can add an id to a standard link - but is there any way to include a referral id when formatting a button?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hey Courtney -

You can : pass referral sources, like pass UTM paramaters, to a hidden field on your Unbounce form.

Now, if you wanted to pass referral sources like UTM parameters from a click through page (a button), you’ll have to do that with a bit of Javascript. Placed the following script in theJavaScript button set the placement to “Head.”

<script> _$(document).ready(function() { _var params = window.location.search.replace(//g,'%20'); _var button = $('a[href]').each( function(i) { _this.href = this.href + params; _}); _}); _</script>   

Would that work for you? Let me know if I missed the mark and you’re after something else!

Worked like a charm - thank you so much! I guess I need to brush up on some javascript.

Glad to hear Eric! Don’t worry our buttons don’t capture parameters by default, so JavaScript wizardry is not expected nor required!
