    Might be some truth to it. One of my site's was starting to pick up in earnings then completely dropped in the last 10 days which does line up with the WordPress update. I was suspecting a caching issue but this makes a lot more sense.

    I checked my site after updating, I can't see the noreferrercode, but then again I haven't added or edited anything yet. It will be a bit annoying if they did fuck something like this up. Wordpress needs to stop with these moronic updates, the last one removed the underline button which was pointless.

    Can you please help me with one thing buddy.. I am using W3 Total Cache and Cloudflare.. How does that affect affiliates ? And hypothetically if i create more affiliate links in a previously published page which did not have any links then how will the cache adversely impact me ?
    Also if it does adversely impact...how can i refresh the cache ? I would appreciate it if I can get an answer to this as i am just starting out with my first affiliate site...

    Also, I am posting an answer to your question in the comment below. It sorts out the affiliate issue for noopener and norefferer..check it out..
