I'm getting a scripting error when trying Send Preview:

An error occurred when attempting to evaluate a RedirectTo function call. See inner exception for details.

I've commented out, with HTML <!-- and --> tags, the html blocks where these calls are found. The AMPscript is inline (%%= =%%).

Does HTML commenting not work with inline AMPscript? It seems that the calls are still being called.

The documentation only mentions AMPscript blocks.

It would need to wrapped in /* */.

Inline use, from how I'm reading this would require it to look like:


When you're ready to un-comment, remove [/* and */].

  • So <a href="%%/*=RedirectTo(<object>)=*/%%" ?

  • No, you still need the brackets -- as in the example Commented Jan 31, 2015 at 22:14
  • Thanks; I've wrapped all RedirectTo() calls in /* */, using brackets, but I'm still getting the error. Where can I view the inner exception details?
