    Hi guys,

    I’m using Hardypress, a static wordpress host. I’m trying to get the affiliate links to work on https://howtobuycrypto.co.uk/ Currently they redirect to a review page on howtobuycrypto for some reason, instead of the affiliate link they are supposed to redirect to.

    Since the links work fine when WordPress is running, but not on the static site, I’m pretty sure that the reason they’re not working is because the 301 redirect folders need to be known by Hardypress crawler which generates the static site as per – https://www.hardypress.com/guides/redirects/

    Do you know which affiliate link plugin that Pokatheme uses please? That might help in figuring out which URLs to give to hardypress to generate the redirects. Any other help you can give to get them working would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Hi Richard!

    The affiliate redirect is done from the theme internally, so if Handypress creates a static version of the site then is normal that redirects to not work.
    Let me explain how the redirects work if is going to help you with Handypress.
    We use the redirect folder (“go” the default) and the redirect slug after the redirect folder. For example go/casinoslug.
    In page initialize if the redirect folder is available and the part after the /go/ exist as an affiliate link slug then the redirect is done with the affiliate URL.

    I hope you’ll find a workaround with Handypress to replicate the redirects functionality.
