    Link Redirection Question
    I am a little confused about the link redirection feature and what exactly it does, maybe someone can help.

    If I enable this feature and hover over a link on my site it appears that the link is pointing to my site, If I click on the link it takes me right back to my site exactly where I am.

    Is this what is supposed to happen??
    I thought it was supposed to show my link but when I click go to the merchants site. Could someone please enlighten me on this.

    Thanks
    Tim

    The reason it takes you back to your own site is because this happens for those merchants you have not signed on to be an affiliate for. If in fact you are an affiliate for these merchants, you probably need to add them to your list of shops.

    Also, you may what to check to see that the box is checked in the Link Redirection preference.

    Thanks for the replies, I checked all the affiliate ids and settings, everything appears ok. I also verified my links as per popshops instructions.

    I am thinking I might be having a problem with the php snippet, I am trying to do this on wordpress. Any suggestions on setting this up with wp?

    Thanks

    The only reason this would happen is if the code is not at the absolute top of the HTML on all pages. That would mean that it, generally speaking, would need to go at the top of the index page.

    Even a single space in front of the code will cause it to behave as you described.

    I put the code in the top of the index page, that did the trick.
