Hey All

 

I am new to os commerce and this forum and could use some help. My store http://www.mothernaturesports.com is lve and pen for business.(your comments welcome)

 

I entered all values in the afifliate configuration box and opened the box for vies n info manager. It shows a link to the application (which seems ok far as I can tell) however the "affiliate information" hits a snag..I've reviewed many posts here but cannot fid an answer.

 

Thouh not totally computer illeterate..I am finding this a steep learning curve (especially the higher aspects-file mngmt etc) help?/suggestions appreciated

Thanks Archer 9926

Are you referring to this message:

 

Your Affiliate Information Goes in /catalog/includes/languages/YOUR LANGUAGE/affiliate_info.php

:unsure:

 

It's just telling you to go edit this file:

 

/catalog/includes/languages/{YOUR LANGUAGE}/affiliate_info.php

 

(Replace {YOUR LANGUAGE} with each language you support, i.e. english, spanish, etc.)

 

That's where you need to place your affiliate info at.

 

Be forwarned!

 

PHP can be very unforgiving. Make a backup copy of that file before you begin making changes.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Thanks for the reply Jim....I was afraid that this might be the answer.So to understand..I go into administrative function look for the file called"catalog"and modify or enter the info yeah? Dan :blush:

The file you need to modify is affiliate_info.php (for each language you support).

 

See the full path to it/them in my last post.

:'( Hey Jim....I opened Admin>Affiliate> looked at all the files and affiliate_info.php does not exist as a schoice.Do I need to create it? If so I clicked "store files" which allegedly should allow to create a file/add file to?/// It keeps bringing me back to the "drop down" menu box to the right and the "addressEmail.php" appears. which is not one of the "affiliate_php"menu choices?

Hey Donald....... Thanks for joining this thread...your linkshare html is for "netflix banners" yes?

 

By the way you guys....perhaps a mor basic query from me would be how to go about inserting html text into banners using the editor?/page source-edit? or how do you guys do it ? Dan :unsure:

I don't know what you did, but you don't get that "Your Affiliate Information Goes in ..." any more.

 

At least I can't get that message to appear.

 

I would assume then that you don't need "affliliate_info.php".

I turned off the affiliate box in info manager for now.A more pressing need is figuring out how to add/upload phm text tohomepage or other pages.

 

ie- I need to add a line of code for google adword and yahoo to verify site...I cut the text and paste to homepage in design wizard after converting text to php code. I Insert it into "body" but it somehow does not get picked up into server to authenticate site..

 

What/where/how is properplace to add code? ThnaksDan

That all depends on what you're adding, and where you want it to show up.

 

There is no "one size fits all" solution for that problem.

I was one of those people that didn't follow step 1 or 2. I mistakenly uploaded my affiliate_inf.php to my root dir, instead of in my language dir. Now I just get a white blank screen when clicking on Affiliate Information. Does anyone have the base dir affiliate_info.php file that I can upload? Thanks in advance. My site is www.organicvirtues.com.
