Affiliates UI Feedback

This is general UI feedback that, perhaps, the WPMUDEV team is interested in…

The affiliate plugin’s UI seems unintuitive to me. I installed and activated it for the first time a few minutes ago.

First, the placement of the “Affiliates” link in the dashboard underneath the “Users” menu doesn’t make sense to me. It would make more sense if there was an “Affiliates” dashboard menu item on the same level as “Posts” and “Pages” or at the very least, it should be underneath “Settings”.

Second, for prospective affiliates, I imaging the items they are most interested in is:

1) Where do I enter my Paypal email address?

2) Where is my affiliate link?

The menu to enter this via the shortcode is slick, but it took me a while to find it. This information should be more out in the open and, possibly, under the aforementioned “Affiliates” menu item.

I like what you have done with the admin menu of the Pro Sites plugin, and it would be nice if the Affiliates plugin followed a similar model.

That’s my 2 cents. :slight_smile:
