Latest News: I updated the information below.
The following tutorial shows you how edit the default pages created by the plugin when you install it for the first time. Please note that if you decide to create your own customize pages, you need to remember to add the URL in the fields below. It is also very important to add the correct shortcode to the corresponding page.
You can also edit and setup the default landing page and view the affiliate tracking in your site.
WordPress Affiliates Manager Pages And Forms Settings
Step 1 ) Go to Affiliates -> Settings -> Pages/Forms to set up the following options.
The default pages are created by the plugin when you first install the plugin. You can choose to create your own pages if you want. If you, make sure you add the new URL in one of the fields below.
Note: Always make sure you add the correct shortcode per page.
- Home Page = The shortcode for this page is
- Registration Page = The shortcode for this page is
- Login Page = The shortcode for this page is
- Terms and Conditions Page = There is no shortcode for this page. This page is created by the plugin by default. You can edit the content to suit your needs.
- Click on Save Settings button when you finish setting up the default pages.
Step 2 ) Go to Pages -> All Pages to view the URL structure for the affiliates pages added by the plugin when you install the plugin. This structure is letting you know that Affiliate Home page is the parent of the following pages Affiliate Login and Register.
Step 3 ) Go to Affiliates -> Settings -> Affiliate Registration -> Affiliates Homepage Message. The following image shows you the message you can customize for your site. This is the message the visitors will see when they visit the affiliate home page in your site. Notice the URL path for each page added in the message. The reason why I am pointing this out is because if you decide to make changes to the default pages added by the plugin, you need to also make the changes here.
Step 3-a ) The following image shows you the custom message created in Step 3 ) above. This is what the visitors see when they visit your Affiliate Home page.
