Conversion tracking using *.shtml - Markup Language specification

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi, I'm trying to set up conversion tracking using a thank you page that is of type shtml. It's almost like html but the S stands for 'Server Side Include' or SSI. When an SHTML webpage is sent to the web browser window, it gets assembled on the server and then sent to be viewed. The normal HTML tags all still work the same, the SHTML simply lets you INCLUDE other pieces into the HTML page.

 

In the conversion tracking settings tab, you can specifiy the page Markup Language, but shtml isn't included. Will this causes problems for tracking conversions?  Thanks.

Hi Cskyi,

 

The browser doesn't distinguish between .shtml and .html file extensions. Just use the HTML markup.

 

Best of Luck!
