    Why You Shouldn't Work When You're Too Tired...
    I just deleted one of my websites with one of the major networks. I meant to just edit it. Poof - gone... with just a push of the button. Now I will have to set it up again, probably reapply with all the merchants, get a new site ID #, change it on all the links...yadda yadda...

    Has anyone else done this and is there a quick fix?

    If it's CJ, you're SOL for the old PID.

    Easiest way to fix: Put the site back into your account, and make note of the new PID number. On your computer, do a site-wide find/replace from the old PID number to the new one, and reupload your pages. Presto...

    You shouldn't have to reapply with all your merchants...before doing anything there, see which merchants are still showing as active in your account. As long as the account itself stayed active, I would think all your affiliations would be, too. BeFree might be an exception; I think that place has some bit where each site is a seperate approval.

    [Edit--you were typing while I was.]

    For LS, it's probably the same. I don't remember needing seperate approvals for different sites there, either.

    There'll be a different number in your link, most likely. Their IDs are harder to understand, but there's an 11-digit bunch of gibberish in the tracking links (with a slash in it as I recall!), that is the ID.

    But at Snare, there may be a "reactivate site" link hidden somewhere...after all, they have a "reactivate account" link! But, it'd take sense to allow site reactivation, so maybe not.

    Geeze Leeann, I live in horror of doing something like that. I definitely work at times when I should be doing something brainless. I've learned to double-check all my work, especially when I've been doing global-replaces. I sure have done some creative things.

    The problem is, how do you know your judgment's impaired when your judgment's impaired? Maybe keep a mirror on your desk to check for slack facial muscles and drooling.

    My sympathies. It's just the kind of thing I know I'll do some day.

    lol! Yes, drool is a foolproof method for determining fatigue. I dunno...Lately the delete key seems to have a magnet that pulls my finger to it. Maybe it's subliminalů

    Hi Leann,

    I didn't understand what you exactly deleted, a site profile in Linkshare? I should be easy to reinstate it back. Let me know if you need any help with that part.

    If you delete your web pages in your site, you should have a copy in your web host if it is hosted, or of course, your recycled bin in your desktop. Even the Wayback Machine can help in some cases.

    It's so hard to build a decent site, it shouldn't be that easy to delete. One thing every affiliate should not procrastinate is backing up their sites.

    It was a site I had listed w/ linkshare. I still have the site, it just got deleted in error w/ linkshare. I contacted them and actually got answers . I just have to register it again and change all the PID numbers...(that's all..lol). Thanks for offering to help though. The emergency seems a little bit more under control now.
