    Any data I plug in these fields (after the 'go/' disappears after I update. Feel like it is an easy fix but cannot figure it out. Any input would be welcome. Rest of modules working correctly.

    Same here. Might be a bug or it could just be a conflict with another plugin. Either way, I've gotta figure it out...

    I had the same issue, then everything worked fine, but now again. Input disappears after I update, but only for (long & "complicated") affiliate-links... :(

    With this link it works:
    http://www.chania-airport.com/transportation.html

    With this link it does not work:
    http://bus-service-crete-ktel.com/timetabledet.php?line=1&lg=3

    Both links on one page.

    Any ideas? Someone?

    Unfortunately the 4.8.1 update did not solve the problem :(

    @pxrmx: I tried your URL (http://bus-service-crete-ktel.com/timetabledet.php?line=1&lg=3) with 4.8.1 and it worked fine for me. Could you please list the exact steps needed to replicate the problem? Also, what version of WordPress, what version of PHP, and what browser are you using?

    Here are 2 links that do not work for me:

    http://clk.tradedoubler.com/click?p=183803&a=1922836&g=18678124

    and

    http://clic.reussissonsensemble.fr/click.asp?ref=363889&site=4326&type=b1&bnb=1

    (It doesn't work for any links to these 2 domains)

    WordPress 3.1
    SEO Ultimate 4.8.1

    I try to add text after /go/ and I update the post. The added text disapears.

    Thanks.

    @3saxx: Do all URLs disappear when you update the post, or only certain ones?

    When it happens, they all disapear.

    But further tests today showed that some links on the page will work if I fill only the corresponding fields, but even those that work alone will disapear when I fill all the fields and update the post.

    @3saxx: Could you give me some examples of links that do work when you fill in just the corresponding fields? Thanks.

    PHP Version 4.4.8
    WordPress Version 3.0.5
    Safari 5.0.3, Firefox 3.6.15

    Ok, SEO Ultimate (4.8.1) link mask generator seems to have a problem with some characters.

    I checked the links 3saxx posted here 1 day ago, I used them first in html view:

    http://clk.tradedoubler.com/click?p=183803&a=1922836&g=18678124
    -> works!

    http://clic.reussissonsensemble.fr/click.asp?ref=363889&site=4326&type=b1&bnb=1
    -> works!

    Changed to visual view and back to html view:
    (Edit: Not possible to post, the editor changes "& a m p;" (without blanks!) to "&")

    http://clk.tradedoubler.com/click?p=183803&a=1922836&g=18678124
    -> fail!

    http://clic.reussissonsensemble.fr/click.asp?ref=363889&site=4326&type=b1&bnb=1
    -> fail!

    Note: The switch to visual view changed "&" to "& a m p;" (without blanks!)

    Conclusion:
    1) Links with "& a m p;" (without blanks!) don't work in my case.
    2) I also figured out, that links with "[[" don't work in my case. (The affiliate network Zanox offers text deep links with custom page-target-links, embedded in "[[" and "]]").
    3) Maybe some more characters cause problems?

    Problem still evident on latest version 5.3...

    @pxrmx and @Gezr: Apparently 4.8.1 fixed the issue for links created in the HTML Editor but not in the Visual Editor. Version 5.5.1 should fix the problem for Visual Editor links.

    @John: There still seems to be a problem, perhaps with long links. I tested with a simple link to wordpress.org and the mask was retained. However when I tested with a deep link the mask disappeared when I updated the post. Are there limits on the length of the url string, or characters contained?
    The link I tested with was of the form below (modified to keep data private)

    http://www.blah[dot]com/cread.php?blahid=9999&blahfid=999999&clickref=&p=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.blahblah[dot]co[dot]uk%2Ftissot-motogp-watch%3Fcm_sp%3DHome%2BPage-_-Small%2BBanners-_-Tissot%2BMotoGP

    I take it back. It seemed to be working, but is now performing as before...

    Thanks for your patience everyone. Version 6.1 should fix all these issues. I tested 3saxx's and Gezr's links on 6.1 and the link masks now save and apply just fine. Let me know whether or not it works for you all on 6.1.

    @John. I updated to 6.2 this morning (bypassing 6.1) and that seems to have done the trick. Thanks for fixing.
