Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Yeah lol I was hoping the message didnt get cut off

    Basically I'd like to know which plugin(s) I need to install in order to allow the follow

    Or if I need a custom programmer

    Here's what I'd like to do

    I'm using a CRM called Delavo which allows me to take payments and track affiliates.. It sets up tiered affiliates etc the whole nine

    I'd like to sell a free trial into a $29.95/mo program that gives the new member an auto generated blog on a subdomain of my site.. This would be the first product in the funnel

    My site is RichFighter.com so for example you would get RichFighter.com/AlexR or whatever username was selected..

    I'd like to have this blog already come with 2 banners installed that track the affiliateID like Richfighter.com/squeezepage.php?id=alexr and them not be able to alter these or mess with the blog settings permalinks or anything else really

    Then when the user posts new blog posts they have the affiliateID in the top banner and right sidebar..

    A live working example of this would be Empower Network

    http://www.empowernetwork.com/kdb/blog/cat-makes-money-online/?id=kdb

    I would use the affiliate plugin you guys have but the Delavo system allows me to only payout on products the user has purchased and if they sell something they havent purchased thru an upsell funnel or whatever then the commission passes up to the person above them which motivates them to get all the products which is then even bigger motivation to promote more.. and they more they promote the more money they make which makes the site a success

    Anyway thats the basic just of what Im looking to do and didn't know which pluigins to use to set this up

    Thanks so much in advance

    @KingDavid,

    We don't have anything that integrates with your particular affiliate system, so this is indeed a project that would require custom development. We don't undertake custom work at WPMU DEV, but if you're looking to hire a developer, be sure to checkout our job boards here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/wpmu-jobs/

    However, I do have some advice and ideas, and hopefully our plugins can help you limit the amount of work needed.

    Signups woulds simply be handled by the Wordpress registration process. User's are able to choose their blog URL and login information.

    However, to workout the free trial, and to setup charging users to have a blog can be done with Pro Sites. It integrates with our affiliates plugin as well. As you're not going to be using ours, perhaps you could at least learn from how it hooks into Pro Sites to create an integration with your existing affiliate service.

    We have the New Blog Templates plugin, which will allow you to create a template site. This would be one site where you predefine any content you want everyone to have when they get started. Then when a new site is created, it will essentially clone the template site.

    Then when the user posts new blog posts they have the affiliateID in the top banner and right sidebar..

    This can be done by creating a custom theme template with the content you need, and that retrieves the affiliate ID from the site settings. It could also be done by hooking into the sidebar or content filter. It may even be a job for our simple ads plugin: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/simple-ads/

    Thanks for being a WPMU DEV member. Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
    Best regards,

    @KingDavid,

    Wordpress Multisite is a feature built into Wordpress that allows you to manage several sites from one main Wordpress installation.

    A good example of this would be Edublogs.com It's a massive Multisite installation where users can create their own blogs.

    So when a plugin is "Multisite only" it means it requires this functionality to run. You can find out more about Multisite here:

    Best regards
