Affiliate Questions & Suggestions

Hello

I have a few questions hopefully someone can assist me.

My experience

In testing the plugin it seems to take the user signing up to the front page of the site instead of the sign up page is that correct. Then once you click register it takes you to registration page but affiliate link is not there. So referral is lost.

1. How can we correct that
2. Now on the affiliate's end when you key in your url in the advance settings it then shows you a link that says, "http://http://mydomain.com" <- Is this correct? Is there a way to fix?

Suggestion
I understand that we can use banners but is it possible for the user to receive just a widget within the install of this plugin and they should just be able to insert affiliate link and it will automatically create in sidebar as long as they activate it in widgets area. Just an idea.

Thank you for this plugin. I just want it to work. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
