Help, my links aren't redirecting! It just brings up a 404 error.

This is a common issue usually caused by another plugin or theme not flushing redirect rules correctly after setting up another custom post type.

To resolve the problem follow these steps:

  1. Deactivate ThirstyAffiliates, don't worry your links are safely stored in the database.
  2. Reactivate ThirstyAffiliates
  3. Visit the Settings->Permalinks page and click save.
  4. Go back to ThirstyAffiliates->All Affiliate Links and view one of the links, it should be redirecting properly.

Are there any known conflicts?

WordPress supports a very vibrant ecosystem of themes and plugins so from time to time it's expected that there will be some minor conflicts with other products.

Here is a list of known conflicts and their workarounds (if one exists):

Bulletproof Security plugin - conflict with ThirstyAffiliates link picker not showing.

Fix: add this to your .htaccess file in your WP root directory

# Thirstyaffiliates skip/bypass rule
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/wp-content/plugins/thirstyaffiliates/ [NC]
RewriteRule . - [S=13]

WooThemes – minor conflict with image uploader being taken over by the theme. Happens with Canvas and some other WooThemes themes.

Fix: add this to your functions.php in your theme:

add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'ta_remove_wf_media_assets' );

function ta_remove_wf_media_assets ( $hook ) {
    if ( 'post.php' == $hook && 'thirstylink' == get_post_type() ) {
        remove_action( 'admin_print_styles', 'woothemes_mlu_css', 0 );
        remove_action( 'admin_print_scripts', 'woothemes_mlu_js', 0 );
    }
} // End ta_remove_wf_media_assets()

Thanks to Matty of WooThemes for the workaround.
