    Question Linkshare Linking Help
    I have implemented a site (ninedeals.com) based on wordpress to start a Affiliate website. I'm planning to post 9 top deals everyday. I'm trying to figure out a way to setup a landing page (I'm not sure what LS calls it) and redirect links to the merchant instead of the code that LS provides. I saw that some people have done (ie: bradsdeals.com) it. Any help would be highly appreciated.

    PS: I'm a little careful doing this, since LS says the code they provide needs to be pasted exactly as it appears.

    Regards,
    Sesiri

    if i am not mistaken, you click on it and it would pop-up a new window like ebates or fatwallet. better luck checking the coding side of sub-forum

    I think at some point you'll need to use the code LS provides. It sets the cookie so you can get your commission.

    That said, wordpress doesn't like LS links (http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=81227), so you'll probably have to set up some sort of database with LS links in them and call the links in that database from your landing page. As Eric said, try the coding forum. You can certainly redirect links, but at some point I'm pretty sure you have to go through the code exactly as LS has it so the cookie is set and commissions are credited.

    You'll have to use some sort of jump script or use the css model that someone suggested (I think it was Chet but I can't remember off the top of my head).

    cheers
