    Creating Text link
    When I try to create a link for a product, I see the following message:

    "You must include all the above html in your links. Any missing html, including the image source, will prevent the link from tracking properly and result in a loss of commissions."

    I keep the product urls in the database and when somebody clicks on a link, I redirect from my database. So, I cannot put all these image tags,...etc into my database. Do you think it is ok if I only copy the href part and put into my database?

    Thanks.

    I've done that before with no problem. I have mixed and matched URLs with different images, or no images, just text. As long as you copy the URL properly, it shouldn't be a problem. Just keep in mind that if you don't use the 1x1 px image (if one is supplied) it won't track impressions.

    This is what I was asking. I only keep the url in the database and redirect from there, I cannot use this 1x1 image.

    Then don't use the 1x1 image. I don't. I still get paid!
