    Hello,

    I am creating a website for a client, and he wants the splash page (using SplashGate) to be hosted on one website (creditdoesmatter.com) and ALL the website content hosted on another site (newelementmarketing.com).

    Here’s the thing, he only wants to advertise creditdoesmatter.com, so all his viewers go there. We need to set it up so that once the viewer opts in they will be redirected to newelementmarketing.com, and we need to place a cookie so that after they’ve opted in – from that point forward – when they go to creditdoesmatter.com they will always be redirected to newelementmarketing.com.

    Please let me know how I can do this using your plugin. Thank you!

    Hi Alysha,

    This not something you can do with SplashGate, and unfortunately not likely to become an option. It seems tricky to accomplish what you’re suggesting, because a site can only read cookies from it’s own domain. So you wouldn’t be able to see what cookie has been set for newelementmarketing from the creditdoesmatter site, or the other way around.

    I think you’d have to frankenstein some of the SplashGate js code into the headers of both sites, because they’d both have to have the right info to know if they need to redirect to the other one. And you’d have to really hack the script on the credit domain so that there is some mechanism by which a user can ‘opt in’ for it. SplashGate doesn’t have this power – it’s either active for all visitors or it isn’t.

    I’m sorry, but I don’t think SplashGate is the right tool for this job.
