Help with creating a tracking pixel
I'm trying to create a pixel that tracks whenever someone enters the thank you page after the transaction. My pixel looks like this..
<img src="http://www.mysitehere.com/pixel.php" width="1" height="1" />
I put that at the bottom of my page and it should call the script at pixel.php, but for some reason it's not working. I think it may be because https prevents it from sending the info. It works when I test it on just http urls. Any ideas?

is this on an external site? ie. is your tracking pixel code on a site different to the one you're processing the transaction on? If it isn't, do a link to it without the http://www.mysitehere.com portion. If it is on a seperate site, you're going to have to purchase an ssl certificate for your tracking site. Browsers will display a broken lock if they need to use any elements that are sourced from a non https location. IE will also pop up a warning asking if the user would like to display the non-secure elements. If the user selects no, they won't get your tracking image.

edit: I think I see what you're saying but the <input type="hidden" ..> doesn't fire off the script. <input type="image"...> does though... not sure if it will work off site yet.
