    Flowboost Question

    Roger Morris

      I have 10 url fields that need to have the http:// removed I was hoping to achieve this with flowboost and some regex "var url = url.replace(/(^\w+:|^)\/\//, '');"


      My question is, can I make one webhook for all 10 fields or will I need to make one for each?

          Hey Roger,


          You can definitely do them all at once! And if you just want the hostname (www.example.com) without the protocol, you can use FBHttp.parseUrl (a built-in) shortcut instead of a regex:


          var urls = {
              Website1 : FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website1}}).hostname,
              Website2 : FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website2}}).hostname,
              Website3 : FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website3}}).hostname


          (Then set your response mappings for urls.Website1, urls.Website2, etc.)

              Would FBHttp return linktrack.info/.2sa0d from http://linktrack.info/.2sa0d?


              Also would this be the right direction if they may be null?


              Var urls = {
              url1  : {{lead.twitter}},
              url2  : {{lead.facebook}},
              url3  : {{lead.instagram}},
              url4  : {{lead.pinterest}},
              url5  : {{lead.zillow}},
              url6  : {{lead.realtor}},
              url7  : {{lead.trulia}},
              url8  : {{lead.craigslist}},
              url9  : {{lead.landingpage}},
              url10 : {{lead.youtube}}
              For (var uri in url) {
              if (urls[uri] !== null && urls[uri] !==''){
              urls[uri] : FBHttp.parseUrl{urls[uri]}.hostname;






              or would it be?





              Var urls = {
              twitter     : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.twitter}}}.hostname,
              facebook    : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.facebook}}}.hostname,
              instagram   : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.instagram}}}.hostname,
              pinterest   : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.pinterest}}}.hostname,
              zillow      : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.zillow}}}.hostname,
              realtor     : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.realtor}}}.hostname,
              trulia      : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.trulia}}}.hostname,
              craigslist  : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.craigslist}}}.hostname,
              landingpage : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.landingpage}}}.hostname,
              youtube     : FBHttp.parseUrl{{{lead.youtube}}}.hostname

                  For that, you'd append the .path:


                  var urls = {
                      Website1 : FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website1}}).hostname + FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website1}}).path,
                      Website2 : FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website2}}).hostname + FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website2}}).path,
                      Website3 : FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website3}}).hostname + FBHttp.parseUrl({{Lead.Website3}}).path


                  Or you could do that much less repetitively with some looping, but this should get you going.

                    Marketo will send an empty string, not a JS/JSON null, so you don't have to worry about that.


                    To flexibly massage an unlimited list of URLs, I'd go like so (warning: is relatively advanced JS if you're not into map/reduce!):


                    var websiteFields = {
                      Website1 : {{Lead.Website1}},
                      Website2 : {{Lead.Website2}},
                      Website3 : {{Lead.Website3}}
                    urlParts = ["hostname","path"],  
                    urls = Object.keys(websiteFields)  
                    .reduce( (acc, site) => {  
                      acc[site] = urlParts.reduce( (acc, part) => 
                        websiteFields[site] ? acc + FBHttp.parseUrl(websiteFields[site])[part] : ""
                      return acc;
