Understand Redirect Logic
Sometimes you might need to make your A/B experiment's variations redirect to another page based on some logic. Of course, you could just start writing your JS code that redirects to the new page but the problem is just half solved.
Doing that will result in your variation not recording any stats since it redirects before allowing for the stats to be stored.
To fix that, we introduced a JS function that you can use to redirect to another page, without losing the ability to also store stats for that specific variation:
So, instead of using for example:
Use the following, instead:
If you need to transfer the query parameters, then you need to use this:
const currentUrl = new URL(window.location.href); convert.redirect('http://www.mysite.com/my_variation_page.html'+currentUrl.search);
If you need to also change the styling of the variation pages where you are redirecting your visitors, you will need to create a deploy for each of the variation URLs where you are redirecting them, and implement the changes on the deploy.
Do not include the variation changes on the same experiment where you used the convert.redirect() instruction, as this will lead to invalid experiment data.
Passing Convert Cookie Data for cross-domain tracking.
If your second-page domain is in a separate domain, the cookie data is passed automatically to the second domain.
