I'm trying to integrate the Affiliates plugin with my Membership Pro 2 system to generate more members on my site. I have several questions on how to best integrate and simplify the user experience.
I should note that this is not for business to business and I'd like the members to share links without having to think too much about it.
1) My members don't have access to the backend of the site, so i've created a separate page for the affiliates details.
2) The affiliates shortcodes load some really awful styling with my upfront/Spirit theme. The following items are must change styles, but the integration post link is dead, so I have to ask here. (I've also tried this method and did not see any changes)
a. I'd like the affiliate link to be shown when the page loads. Right now you have to click the 'edit' button (which is white) and read through a lot of text.
b. If the link can't be displayed without an interaction, I need to be able to adjust the styling for: i. the background colour of the container
ii. the 'edit' button needs to be styled like the other buttons on my site
iii. 'Enable Affiliate Links' needs to be changed to 'Would you like to refer your friends?'
iv. PayPal Email Address and entry field can be hidden (I will apply partial refunds through the stripe gateway)
v. 'Affiliate Advanced Settings' can be hidden as it will never be used by individuals.
vi. Is there a way to add a 'Share This Link' function beside the affiliate link?
vii. The 'Update Settings' button should look like the buttons on all other pages of the site
c. Separate from the styling above, I need to make it wickedly simple for members to 'Share' their link to social media. How has this been done in the past? What would you recommend?
I will be tracking all changes manually on the back-end and I'll never use PayPal to cash out, as mentioned above.
If there are references to these changes that have worked for others, please send me links.
NOTE: I'm working from a WP Engine staging site. I will grant support access, but I'm not sure how far you will get on a staging site. Please let me know if you need more access.
