Support » Plugin: Easy Affiliate Links » Links are blank in auto-published emails

  • I’ve used this plugin for a while. It’s a little buggy, but gets the job done. Unfortunately, I discovered all the links are blank when publishing a blog post and using Jetpack. So if you plan on using affiliates in blog posts, this product does not work.

    Hi there,

    What kind of bugs are you experiencing? Could you elaborate?

    Unfortunately this is a limitation of the Jetpack Publicize feature. It just doesn’t render shortcodes. There is nothing we can do about that on our end. I just offered an alternative way that does work in your support topic.

    It seems a bit harsh to only give a 1 star because of this?

    Kind regards,
    Brecht

    Hi Brecht,

    Can you point to me in the documentation where it says that the plugin does not support Jetpack because of shortcodes? I’m happy to change my review knowing you were upfront of this limitation.

    It has never come up before so I didn’t even consider that.

    But really it’s something that Jetpack should mention (and they do): they are the ones not supporting shortcodes, a basic WordPress functionality.

    It’s not that we don’t support Jetpack. It’s Jetpack that doesn’t support us (and MANY other plugins).

    Fair enough. I’ve changed my review and will stop using the plugin.

    Thanks, I appreciate it. Would love to make this work with Jetpack, but as far as I’m aware there is nothing we can do on our end.

    You mentioned other bugs. I’m still interested in hearing about those to see if we can fix things.

    Brecht
