A simple way to output query param values in the page body

💡This code does not work in any version of Internet Explorer, as it relies on URLSeachParams and Custom Elements v1. An earlier post showed how to append form field values

You cleared the Munchkin cookie from a form post, but you forgot the mkt_tok

Clearing the Munchkin cookie does one thing, and does it well. But chances are you want this other thing, too.

Velocitip: the less than ﹤ and greater than ﹥ operators fail silently with Strings (VTL ain’t JavaScript!)

Velocity is in essence a way a more “sugary” way to write Java, and has almost nothing in common with with JavaScript. But even I forget sometimes and think it plays by JS rules.

Inserting ﹤style﹥ elements into mktoText areas (without having ’em stripped out)

Marketo gets curiously angry when you try to add <style> elements in the Rich Text Editor, though such elements can make strategic sense. They don’t apply the same punishment to <script> elements nor custom elements, so that gives us a workaround.

Stop email clients from hyperlinking text that’s merely “URL-like”

Call it an unwelcome feature, call it a bug, call it a security vulnerability. Whatever you call it, here’s how to call it off (mostly).

Velocitip: Reformat phone numbers for local display and “deformat” numbers for tel: links

Phone numbers can take many formats (Marketo, like most apps, treats them as strings under the hood). If you want to use a standard format in outbound emails, Velocity can help.

Simulate Visibility Rules to show/disable/hide the Submit button on Marketo forms

Native Visibility Rules can’t manage the Submit button state, but a little custom JS can.

What’s the difference between a single-form loadForm() callback and the all-forms whenReady()?

This one’s pretty esoteric, but it’s good to know if you’re applying to be a Master of Forms™.
