    Basically, I would like to be able to post links to say http://www.mydomain.com/product_info.php?cPath=5&products_id=19030 that would redirect to "my affiliate product link"itemid=19030.

    Not all LS redirects redirect in a logical format - some do and the product id/sku can be coded in like this

    http: // click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=YOURLSAFFILID&offerid=MERCHANTID.PRODUCTSKU&type=10&subid=

    Other ones like the Overstock one has a different format. Mondera has another one as well - more like a redirect with the actual product full url in the link above. Still others will code as above but isn't consistent ie some will go to the right product, others will just go to the home page. That's what I've found anyway when trying to code. The AM (some of the more cluey ones) will usually know what sort of format their affiliate link takes so it's best to ask them.

    Yes,

    I would just stick with 1 merchant. I am assuming htaccess would be the best way to do this. The problem is that I don't know how to write it. I tried a few from examples on a how to use htaccess site, but they didn't work. I just need to have a link to a nonexistent page on my site rewritten except for the sku number at the end.
