    Question Does CJ mind PHP redirects on affiliate links
    The title says it all, will CJ mind if I create a PHP file and redirect my affiliate links through that? I know they like to see the page the click came from and this maybe difficult if the click goes through a PHP file, is this the case? What do other people do?

    That is fine, it is done all the time.

    If they think somethin' fishy is up, they will probably ask you directly.

    As long as you are not doing anything unethical.

    the client IP doesn't change so CJ would really be none-the-wiser.

    it still works and I don't believe I read anything against it in CJ's TOS.

    PHP is just a programming language (one of the most common ones for web-based development). Redirects through it are just like most other redirects.

    Here's a page that explains how to redirect in several programming languages:
