    Need help with affiliate link to blog post
    I'm new to this affilate program. I've signed up with the company as an affiliate. I then go to Marketing Tools and creative search. I found links although none of them are just text. I've updated the links by selecting the update button. I've pasted the text into the blog post (Wordpress) and I only get errors back.

    Error says: (xxx1 is the name of the company that I signed up with, xxx2 is my user id. I've removed this info as this forum doesn't allow actual links. I've put the rest of the info in as it may help solve the problem.)
    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /blog/<a start of link with href etc. affiliates.XXX1.com/t/url.php/cid/90/sid/1139/acid/XXX2" >Writing</a> on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/2.2.11 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8i DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 Server at myname.com Port 80

    You mentioned WordPress...........Are you using the freebie Wordpress blog or are you using WP on your own web domain???

    I'm using wp on my own domain. But doing a link to text in a post on the blog, shouldn't make any difference.

    Are you editing your own post? May sound silly but there is a difference in permissions for posts and comments.
