Download mbox.js

Target Standard and Premium use a modified version of the Adobe Target mbox.js file.

IMPORTANT

mbox.js end-of-life: As of March 31, 2021, Adobe Target no longer supports the mbox.js library. Post March 31, 2021, all calls made from mbox.js will gracefully fail and impact your pages that have Target activities running by serving default content.

We recommend that all customers migrate to the most recent version of the new Adobe Experience Platform Web SDK or the at.js JavaScript library before this date to avoid any potential issues with your sites. For more information, see Overview: implement Target for client-side web.

To use the Adobe Target Visual Experience Editor, you must include an additional line of JavaScript as part of your mbox.js file.

  1. Click Administration > Implementation in Target Standard.

  2. Click Download mbox.js and follow the prompts to save the file.

  3. (Conditional) If you use mbox.js version 60 or later, you can configure the library to automatically hide page content by default until mboxes load to reduce flicker on responsive sites.

    For more information, see “Suppress page-load flicker” in mbox.js Advanced Settings.

  4. Create the mbox.js reference on the website.

    Beginning with mbox.js version 57, the mbox.js reference can be placed anywhere within the <head> section of the page.

    IMPORTANT

    If you use a version of mbox.js prior to version 57, the reference must be the last item in the <head> section of your pages. If the reference is not the last item, serious display or performance issues could result. See What mbox.js does for more information.

  5. Upload the saved mbox.js file to the location in your hosting environment that you specified in the code.
