[Plugin: AdRotate] %link% redirects to 404!

  • The affiliate link formed by AdRotate looks like this: http://www.mysite.com/wp-content/plugins/adrotate/adrotate-out.php?trackerid=1

    Fair enough, but there’re TWO problems:
    1. The affiliate link redirects to a 404 page, most likely because my WP directories have 644 permission hence the adrotate-out.php file is inaccessible
    2. If I manually specify the link using the following code:
    <span class="ad-%id%"><a href="http://www.example.com/page_to_be_redirected_to.html%" target="_blank"><img src="%image%" /></a></span>
    …the clicks are obviously not counted!

    HELP! Utter n00b here trying to hack & learn his way through the complex poetry of WordPress! Thanks in advance!

    Cheers!

  • Thanks for this question. I’m trying to work out how to get the clicks counted in AdRotate. I have enabled clicktracking and also put the affiliate url links in the provided box, but nothing happens.

    What I’m also wondering is what this actually means: “Additionally you need to make the ad itself aware of the click tracker by substituting the url with a simple tag.” (Knowledgebase Adrotate Plugin: http://meandmymac.net/support/knowledgebase.php?article=30).

    Did you figure the issue out? I’m having this same issue with clicktracking!!!
