    Hey,

    I have a problem with blackhat codebreaker.
    I tried using it on my wordpress blog but thanks to the permalink structure it opens the permalink+links.txt

    Causing it to open the page instead of the links.txt, Now if I could see the source I could edit it but it's encrypted.

    How can I fix this ?

    Regards, Ruler0fAll

    What's his username.
    And also I can't imagine no one had this kind of problem before.

    HI,
    I'm Brad of BHCB.
    The WP issue is known. A new version which is 100 compatible with wp permalinks will be available very soon.

    Price will probably rise when I launch the update, but all current users will get the update free of charge.

    Brad

    Hey Brad, Thanks for the answer, I've already created a sort of fix with php and made it geo-targeted :D. Also, Are you going to reply to my emails any time soon ?

    Hey Ruler,

    My development version for V3 already has the following working seamlessly:

    • Complete WP compatibility
    • Geo Targeting
    • Ad Rotating
    • Referrer faking through your WH pages (not sure about adding this, though)
    • Cosmetics control: BG color, BG image, Title color etc.
    I did send you a short mail. I'll now email you with more data.

    Cheers,
    Brad

    Brad,
    When you do decide not to include "Referrer faking through your WH pages", could you leave in a "undocumented" (generic) hook so that we could add/call a 3rd party solution at the right spot ?

    I would buy it if it had the fake referring through white hat and/or it had postback functionality. Like C P A Lead does; it closes only when a successful lead is completed and you have been credited.

    Just a couple suggestions....Thanks!

    Post back function can only be done by the merchant / CPA network so that would not be possible. Just use CPA Redirector if you want to fake the referrer for the time being, takes 2 mins to setup.

    BHCB is encrypted, that's why I asked for the hook.

    Set your affiliate links to different CPA-R links to setup fake referrer with it :)

    Are you talking about the contentgeneration.org plugin ?
    I'm rotating similar CPA Offers from different networks. (Custom script around BHCB.)
    Upto 8 at the moment at one of the sites protected by BHCB.
    Unless the CPA Redirector plugin can handle different incoming and outgoing links, it's no good to me.
    And ad rotating is being added to v3.0.

    CPA-R can be very easily edited to accept different incoming numbers and links, just add additional statements like where it says if $num=111 or whatver number change 111 to:
    111||234||434 or whatever numbers that you use.

    Then change any occurence of $cpa_offer_url after the first one to :
    $cpa_offer_url[$num]

    Then at the very top where you specify your affiliate lin change it to this format:
    $cpa_offer_url[111] = "http://afflink1.com";
    $cpa_offer_url[234] = "http://afflink2.com";
    $cpa_offer_url[434] = "http://afflink3.com";

    gimme4free, you are lying to me. :p

    Those variables/arrays are from the standalone version, $num (actually $magic_number) and $cpa_offer_url.
    And you are right about that the standalone version needs to be edited, because initially it can do only one redirect.

    So I always assumed the WP version was also only able to redirect to one CPA Offer.
    The WP version always crapped out on me with a timeout error.
    But I was always too lazy to research what caused it.
    But I just checked the source code and I know why I the plugin gets the timeout error.

    When you go to the options page, the plugin tries to load all posts and pages with the status "publish", with a SQL SELECT, to display their title.
    I always installed the plugin on a blog with combined over 2000 posts and pages. So it timed out.
    But just now, I installed it on a WP blog with just 4 pages and no posts yet, and the plugin's screen showed up. I can attach a different Affiliate/CPA URL to each published WP post/page URL.
    Only when the magic number in the incoming URL matches the one in the options, the magic number is stripped from the incoming URL, and the plugin redirects to the Affiliate/CPA URL.
    When the magic number is not present, or mismatches, the WP post or page is displayed as normal.

    So I can redirect many links with the WP version, as long as I keep the blogposts and pages at a low number. I'll set up a special blog with a page (not post) for each affilite offer and see how that goes.

    Thanks for "forcing" me to check this out. :)

    Oh yes and you have to add 1 line of code (with the function call) to the header.php file of the template.

    I forget the names, was just saying how to do it, the standalone version is best in my opinion because you can just add the code to one PHP file and call to it from any page on your site.
