    Linkshare Password Problem
    I have not used linkshare in awhile and forgot my password. So I did a password reset and was able to log in to my account ok using the new password. Then when I click on run reports I get a message saying that my password has expired and to enter my old password and then select a new password. First of all I already just selected a new password so how can it be expired already? Second its telling me to enter the old password...are they referring to the new password that I just created in order to log in or are they referring to the old password that I could not remember? Their whole setup sucks...now I remember why I never used them.

    Nothing is real time with LinkShare. Wait at least an hour before to use your new password to run your reports if you not want to end up with an endless loop.
    Yes. "Their whole setup sucks..."

    Had same thing happen,
    with different circumstances. When it asked for the password again I changed it back to what I had before as a new password and it worked fine.

    The different databases using the password are not synchonized and are not updated at the same time. So, you can change again your password to your old one during the login and be able to check your stats.
