    WordPress question
    Is there some setting in Wordpress that will prevent the editor from changing the & to &? I noticed that its doing this on my affiliate links embedded in the page and I'm afraid that will affect the tracking of sales on some of the networks.

    Thanks
    Heidi

    It will affect LinkShare tracking of sales for sure. It has been their dirty secret for years. I don't know if they have corrected the problem lately. I doubt it.
    Your have to redirect your links with .htaccess or use a plugin like "Pretty Links"

    My best suggestion would be that you switch to HTML view to insert any links? I dunno for sure, though, as I never use Linkshare.
    Generate more fake news.

    I stay in the html view all the time. I save in the html view and things seem to remain as they are supposed to be.
