        Important: A microsite is required to launch your landing page.

    2. Advanced Settings:

        Choose the redirect option from the Redirect Settings section:

        • None: No redirect occurs.
        • Automatically Redirect: Redirect the user to a new page. You can specify how many seconds before redirecting the visitor. The redirect will continue to work if you disable the Externally Visible option.

        • Choose the Time zone for the expiry date and time.
      • With the Enable Legacy Rendering option, you can choose between legacy rendering and the newer rendering offered by Eloqua. The new rendering uses an updated HTML Doctype and will improve the rendering experience in web browsers..

        Important: If any existing landing page contains custom code through code cells, headers, footers, dynamic content, shared content, or signatures, the new rendering might change the way the landing page is displayed. If you enable the new rendering for existing landing pages, make sure to test what the landing pages look like before sending them to contacts.
