    Has the latest WordPress update broken your affiliate links?

    New Wordpress Update April 2017: "noopener noreferrer"

    What’s happening?

    The latest WordPress update has seriously affected affiliate sites as a whole, by adding two new tags to any links that you have on the page with the target=”_blank” attribute set.

    These tags kill affiliate links by not sending the referrer in the HTTP headers.

    This means that if you’re an affiliate for a company that tracks using this method, the referral trail will be lost & you will not get paid for sending the traffic.

    You will, and already have lost money.
