I have configured SmartTarget 2014 and Fredhopper with Tridion 2013 SP1 and followed steps below to create a static page.

Created a PT and attached all the TBB(s). Also I have created a dynamic CT for promotion components and attached the required TBB(s). After that I have created the promotion component.

Next I have created promotion by going to Targeting Tab of CME Using Trigger as current date.

Finally I have created a page, but when browsing the page it is showing blank. Nothing is rendered onto the page.

Are you using a page template with the .html extension? This won't be executed by your app server, and therefore the dynamic code won't run - either use .aspx or .jsp, or configure your app server to execute .html pages.

  • Yes page extension was html but after changing it to aspx its still the same

  • If that's your source in the browser, then your app server is not configured to execute the tags... if you see that in File System then it seems correct.
