I installed the Affiliates plugin.
I also installed a plugin that allows users to register without the need to register a username. The plugin , called Register Plus Redux, essentially uses the email address as the username. The idea is to make registration and logging in as easy as possible.
There is a slight hicup however, which pertains to the privacy of users wishing to become an affiliate via Affiliates plugin. Instead of the affiliate code looking link looking like "http://www.websiteurl.com?ref=username-001", for example, it now looks like "http://firstname.lastname@example.org".
The easiest solution might be to reference the user's unique MySQL "wp_users" table record ID number. The affiliate code could then look like "http://www.websiteurl.com?ref=50-001".
Can you offer any suggestions or code a plugin modification for me?
I would be happy to pay for the work if you can give me a quote.
Perhaps this feature could be incorporated into future Affiliates plugin updates
I look forward to your response.
