    1)Can I use a dash/hyphen in my SIDS (e.g. Polygamy-Porter)

    2)What is the max number of characters I can use in a SID.

    TIA.

    Here is a clip from the CJ back office concerning SID's

    Although the number of characters is clear,64, the other question you had isn't in the following.



    SID tracking is available for pay-per-lead and pay-per-sale links (not for pay-per-click). In order to utilize this functionality, a publisher website must dynamically generate its tracking links to include the unique SID for each visitor to the website. An SID can be up to 64 characters, and may include spaces. If spaces are used in the SID they must be URL-encoded (e.g. %20). Commission Junction does not generate the SID.

    I've always just run all the words together, but it looks like you can make spaces by separating the words with %20. For example, Happy Holidays would be sid=Happy%20Holidays. I'm sure that this also means you can use hypens without a problem.

    I use hyphens - the advancing tool converts them to the %20 into the code. Hasn't been a problem.

    Hyphens aren't handled that well. I'd advise against using them.

    Especially since the hyphen is the field seperator CJ uses within the cookie.
