    I notice the link codes that we retrieve by clicking on "Get Link" in CJ mailings are a bit more elaborate than the link codes we get from the regular web interface.

    E.g., I get an image code following this pattern when I click on one of the CJ email "Get Link"s for a typical merchant promotion:

    <a href="http://www.qksrv.net/click-######-########" target="_blank" onmouseover="window.status='http://abcdefg.hijklmnop.com/shopping/index.jsp?product=Home&cid=#######';return true;" onmouseout="window.status=' ';return true;">
    <img src="http://www.qksrv.net/image-######-########" width="125" height="125" alt="qrstuvwxyz" border="0"></a>

    Normally, the comparable image links I get from the CJ interface don't include the mouseover, mouseout, windowstatus parameters.

    Why are these included when I get code via CJ's emails, but not when I get code from the web login interface?

    Is there any harm in leaving those parameters out? What's the point of the inconsistency?

    Thanks for any info on this,

    This is a masked link. When somebody mouses over a standard CJ link, their browser will display the affiliate coded URL (www.qksrv.net etc etc). With the masked link, it will display the destination url (www.whatevermerchant.com).

    You may want to consider removing the "target="_blank" bit though. This makes a new window open, and many popup blockers will prevent that from happening.

    it may be possible that pop up blockers steer clear of blocking _blank - specifically google's toolbar

    please update me if you have more info

    Popup blockers that I use don't block a pop that I click on, in other words, a target blank isn't a popup, it's a click request to open a new window.
