    Signature Instructions?
    Ok, so we are no longer able to use subid's. The other thread covered plenty of the complaining about this. My question is how does this "signature" system work? I can't even find any links in the linkshare interface to get set up.

    I think this link really covers most of it: http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=67062

    It explains how it works and what you need to do to change things. I did try it on one site, grudgingly, and have not seen anything different in my reports yet.

    That thread is like 5 pages of *****ing and moaning. I'm not patient enough to go through all that stuff just to find the details. I was hoping someone could post the details here in a nice concise thread. My LS account is configured for signature but I do not see anywhere in the linkshare interface on what I need to do now. I'm also curious about what the reports will look like.

    Log into LS and check your email there. If you are the same as me, you recieded information on how to make the changes there.

    I had the same questions as you. LS did a poor job of communication in regards to this and it sure is not obvious at there site where to get the information.

    This is even better as you don't have to search around the page for it. http://www.linkshare.com/rc/LS_Signature_Overview.pdf

    Basically, just add "u1=whatever" to your links and use the Member ID reports to see what clicks and sales were generated by each "u1".
