If you want to use the same set of rules across multiple lightboxes, we have a quick and easy way to copy your rules from one lightbox to another using a custom URL. You’ll need the BoxID for the source lightbox, as well as the destination lightbox. The BoxID for each lightbox is found in the list of your lightboxes to the left of the name of the lightbox. It is the 6-digit ID.
- Once you have your BoxIDs, copy this URL into your favorite text editor:
- Then replace "111111" with the BoxID for the source lightbox, and replace "222222" with the BoxID for the destination lightbox. When you're done, the URL should look something like the example below.
Example 1 (copy to a single box):
Example 2 (copy to multiple boxes):
You can also copy the rules from one lightbox to multiple lightboxes. Separate the target BoxIDs with a comma. Take a look at the example below to see it in action.
Note: The existing conditions for all target boxes are completely overwritten.
Auto URL replacement is in effect for the rules being copied. This is based on the URL from the account profile. Only the “host” portion of the URL is replaced in the conditions, ignoring “http://” and anything after “/” or “?” or “#” at the end of the URL.
For example, https://retentionscience.com/product would only use “retentionscience.com” as the “host” and http://www.google.com?dfp would only use “www.google.com” as the “host."
URL replacement only runs if both the source and target accounts have profile URLs setup. Otherwise, URLs are copied from the source conditions as is.
