Had a request from a client to help them shorten down the url for the ad they were going to put in a printed brochure plus a newspaper.
The url is ‘mywebsite.com - This website is for sale! - mywebsite Resources and Information.’ but they wanted the regular home page to load and in the process record in Piwik the fact that their entry page was mywebsite.com/2012
I created the folder 2012 in the root, and within it the single file titled index.html containing the following code.
- Note that the part where it says you can change the number ‘3’ to however many seconds you want. You could also add a small logo/image to the page just for people to look at.
The 2 X winking smiley’s seems to be replacing the ; and ) in the code.
I also have a goal set up to check for the title of the redirecting index.html page (you can give it what ever title you wish)
Many thanks to Matt for his help in getting the solution sorted out.
