There are loads of sites that have osC Affiliate working - but they use version 2.5a

I have solved the login issue. It was coming from an html_output.php mod, killing the session ID. A good programmer would have thought of that right away, (I guest) but I am not.

 

Now I need to solve the banner issue who seems to be a more common problem.

 

 

Thanks for your help Vger,

I am not too familiar with any of the new updates to oscaffiliate but on the older versions there was a problem with the URL paths for the banners. Does the URL for the banners show up as HTTP or HTTPS?


Upon receiving fixes and advice, too many people don't bother to post updates informing the forum of how it went. Until of course they need help again on other issues and they come running back!

 

Why receive the information you require in good faith for free, only to then have the attitude to ignore the people who gave it to you?

 

There's no harm in saying, 'Thanks, it worked'. On the contrary, it creates a better atmosphere.

Hi,

 

It shows up as HTTP,

<a href="http://www.mysite.com/catalog/product_info.php?ref=16&products_id=118&affiliate_banner_id=1" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.mysite.com/catalog/affiliate_show_banner.php?ref=16&affiliate_pbanner_id=118" border="0" alt="Aromatized Vinegar"></a>

 

 

The link works but not the image.

I have just created an affiliate account and clicked the banners link - the banners show up.

 

I then used the html code and inserted it in a blank page and the banner showed up.

 

Furthermore when I clicked the link your website opened up... remind me again what trouble the banners are giving you?

The only banner that work now is the default banner. If you try to build a banner from a product, the link to the image wont work, only the link to the poduct page.

Here is the code of the affiliate_configure.php page.

If I set the AFFILIATE_KIND_OF_BANNERS to 2, only the AFFILIATE_SHOW_BANNERS_DEFAULT_PIC works.

Sorry for all my posts, but it seems that i can?t edit my other posts. :blush:

I?ve managed to fix most of the errors, but it doesn?t work to registrer an aff-account.

The page just reloads, and nothing is saved into my database.

 

Why is that?

When you have the good fortune of 'fixing' most of your errors please update the thread as to how you did it because it helps other people who may have the same problem.

Hello.

I was looking for something as simple as this:

 

1) I want to know where the customers that ordered came from.

2) I want to put a link like this: http://mystore.com/catalog?&affiliate=1 so I can trace the affiliate 1 to a store that I know what it is

3) When the customer cames from that link... I would like to store the affiliate where he came... into the order.

 

Basically this is all I need. No need the control of prices and comissions but if it cames as an extra, I don't mind.

 

Any help?

osC Affiliate is pretty much as simple as it gets when it comes to being able to track click-thru's for the purpose of recording sales generated by affiliates.

How would one go about adding an extra field to the banner admin for the ALT text?

 

I'd like to name banners things like banner1.jpg, banner2.jpg, etc... but have the ALT text be "Visit AcmeWidgets.com"...

 

Is that a major task...?
