characater limit for URL field in email template created from API

I want to create an email template and in that I want to input URL variable which directs the end users to my website.  Can anyone tell me what is the character limit allowed to input in URL field.  I am unable to input more than 50 characters.  I was told by Constant Contact support team that the limit is 510.  Can anyone guide me on the solution?

 

thank you

Hey,

 

The maximum amount of characters inside of a URL is 510.  How many characters are your links going to be?

I'm hoping this is still monitored, but I am having the same issue with URL length to redirect. The link in question is: http://visitor.r20.constantcontact.com/d.jsp?llr=m8f47wcab&p=oi&m=1102427690860&sit=suiqik7db&f=2735...

 

It cuts off the last 4 characters... is there anyway to increase the character limit?

 

Thank you!!

Hi Nicole,

 

Based on the link that you've provided, that should be well within the limit of 510 characters imposed by our email editor. Can you provide an example of how you're using the link when the last 4 characters are cut off?

 

Thanks!
