Affiliate Banners not displayed


Recommended Posts

I've got the following code in the settings:


<a href="[AffiliateLinkCode]"><img src="http://www.optimusmedia.com/banners/468x60banner.gif" width="468" height="60" border="0"></a><br> 
<(a href="[AffiliateLinkCode]")><(img src="http://www.optimusmedia.com/banners/468x60banner.gif" width="468" height="60" border="0")><(/a)><br><br> 
<a href="[AffiliateLinkCode]"><img src="http://www.optimusmedia.com/banners/120x60banner.gif" width="120" height="60" border="0"></a><br> 
<(a href="[AffiliateLinkCode]")><(img src="http://www.optimusmedia.com/banners/120x60banner.gif" width="120" height="60" border="0")><(/a)><br><br>
This site hosted by <a href="[AffiliateLinkCode]">OptimusMedia.com</a><br>
This site hosted by <(a href="[AffiliateLinkCode]">OptimusMedia.com</a)><br><br>


Yet the preview images do not display on the /affiliates.php page for the clients.


Anyone else seeing (or not seeing) this?

BTW: The 3rd code snippet works. It's only the images that do not appear. Screenshot attached.

what's with the '(' in the links ? I don't think they're going to help!


I would suggest moving the banners to a local directory to the template - that way, you can use relative links and not http://


<img src="banners/120x60banner.gif" width="120" height="60" border="0">


you may have to add {$template} to that path, but it should work once you get the path right.

having now taken a look at the affiliates page, I can see why the '(' are there! :)


do you have any hotlink prevention on those images? if I use your code, then the banner images don't show - but if I replace your banner link with one to the WHMCS logo, the whmcs logo shows.


<a href="[AffiliateLinkCode]"><img src="http://www.whmcs.com/wp-content/themes/whmcs/images/logo_whmcs.png" width="171" height="38" border="0"></a><br>

<(a href="[AffiliateLinkCode]")><(img src="http://www.whmcs.com/wp-content/themes/whmcs/images/logo_whmcs.png" width="171" height="38" border="0")><(/a)><br><br>

basically, I think the code is correct but there is something preventing your specific banner images from being shown.

I don't show HotLink protection on, and I enabled it and disabled it, but you are right. That sure seems to be the case. And I can't have an affiliate program until I resolve this. I'll check permissions and hunt for a hidden .htaccess file somewhere.. Thanks again.
