    Need Forum Post to affiliate link redirect help
    Hi,

    I am in desperate need!

    I have recently completed my forums in which I have an Online Deals forum.

    I also have a MySQL database that houses my affiliate links, coupon codes, etc.

    Now my delima is....

    How do I redirect the links that are posted in the forums to my affiliate links so that I receive credit?

    I have seen numerous forums that redirect any link posted in their forums to their affiliate link before it hits the actual link posted (example: a member posts http://merchantsite.com/specific_item, when someone clicks on that link it will take them to http://forum_site.com/merchant.php=h.../specific_item
    or something like that, you get the picture. it is hitting the affiliate link before going to the actual link that was posted)

    Please help. I need to get this implemented ASAP. It is taking forever to edit each and every post.

    Please give me step by step instructions..... I am no good php.... but follow detailed directions very good....LOL

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think there's a simpler solution out there.

    it would be a good additional revenue if the bounce.cc allow you to share revenue on merchants you have no relationship with too

    Thanks Loxly and Michael.

    Laura, please feel free to send me an email to the address in my signature. I can help you with this.

    Vrindavan, I would love to offer that as a solution, unfortunately that could lead to some problems with the networks and merchants since it would be a way "around" signing up for their programs directly.

    Thanks,

    Mike
