[wordbay] Forced linking back to author site? (4 posts)

    Just installed the plugin trying to get some eBay items to show up on side bar.

    One eBay item shows up per post. But the item links back to author site instead my own site:

    http://www.irokm.com/ads/click.php?a=270335865144&c=

    I can't find anywhere on setting page to control, and any of your php files have the irokm.com tag. There is a portion of your core php file encrypted.

    Is linking to irokm compulsory in using the otherwise an excellent plugin? The plugin already has a section allowing people to donate few percentage of the affiliate incomes.

    Stupid me, it is another plugin [WP TagAds] linking me to irokm.com, not [wordbay].

    Looks like the link is compulsory as the core php file has required this script from author's server:

    <script src="http://www.irokm.com/ads/ads.php?c=<?=get_option('wptagads');?>&s=<?=get_option('wptagads_size');?>&k=<?=substr($keywords['set'], 0, -1);?>" type="text/javascript"></script>

    I am the creator of WP TagAds, let me shed some light on what is going on here.

    I must link back to irokm.com to process what ads to display, what you are seeing is a JavaScript include that tells me what ads to display.

    Does that clear things up?

    Hi, I only just saw this, but I guess you solved the problem. But just to reiterate, there is no forced linking, no hidden backlinks or anything else present in WordBay, except the revenue sharing option which is completely optional. I like to keep things transparent.

    Hope you find Wordbay useful.
