hello, if you may i noticed the UTM tags are missing mandatory parameter, you can use the following tool from Google to fill in the information

https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/campaign-url-builder/ 

here is an example of url: https://www.nalleyfresh.com/order.php?location=2&utm_source=email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=huntvalley#/restaurants/nalleyfreshhuntvalley/1063

does this load properly?

Hey Everyone, 

The problem was the function whereRecordNumberInUrl(0) would retrieve the number from the request before the internal link, so for the following link:

https://www.example.com/order.php?location=2&utm_medium=email&utm_source=sharpspring&sslid=MzM3NjQxMzWzMDcwBwA&sseid=MzIwszAzMTA3NwQA&jobid=75ea5113-e600-43aa-8a68-349d0be02a9f#/restaurants/nalleyfreshhuntvalley/1063/

It would use the value 9 (the final number before the hash and after the question mark) instead of the actual correct location of 2.

I've updated the code on the order page so that if it finds a location request variable, it will use that instead of the last value in the URL. Here is the updated code:

$recordNum = (!empty($_REQUEST['location']))? intval($_REQUEST['location']) : getLastNumberInUrl();


list($locationsRecords, $locationsMetaData) = getRecords(array(
'tableName' => 'locations',
'where' => "`num` = ".$recordNum,
'loadUploads' => true,
'allowSearch' => true,
'limit' => '1',
));
$locationsRecord = @$locationsRecords[0];
if (!$locationsRecord) { dieWith404("Record not found!"); }

Cheers,

Greg
