Update Your Landing Page URLS
In release 2111, we have started adapting and standardizing the URLs for the Content Data Networks (CDN). This means that the syntax of the automatic URL we provide when landing pages are published has changed.
What does this mean for you?
Landing pages that use the old URLs will continue to work for the next few releases.
However, we recommend that you start adapting your existing landing page URLs as early as possible as of now.
Doing this now will give you extra time to update those links wherever you’ve used them. Then you can avoid the problem of broken links in the future.
What should you do?
To update the URLs for your existing landing pages, you simply need to republish the page.
You can do this for each landing page in two easy steps, simply by choosing Unpublish and then Publish.
The new URL will be provided automatically on publishing.
It has the following syntax: smc-lp.s4hana.ondemand.com
If you self-host your landing pages, you should redownload the page.
For more information, see the section Check and Publish in the Application Help topic Landing Page Design.
Hi Janina Walzenbach
Thanks for this blog post!
If you unpublish and republish and get a new url,
will at that moment the old url still work? e.g. if we had just sent out an email with the old url, and then republish and get the new url?
And what if you use a link to a landing page in a reusable block, with the special link type specifically for Landing Page. The next time that an email is sent, will it automatically pick up the new url?
Is there any option to see / get an alert when an old url is still used? We put the links to landing pages sometimes on e.g. our website, and there's always a risk that you forget one of the url's. Can Marketing Cloud detect it if old url's are still used? That would help to know if we updated all urls or still forgot one somewhere.
the old links continue to work as the CDN basically does caching and also directing to the old link.
In mid term we will provide a new service for the landing pages and the CDN is a preparation for such a seamless transition.
