Users Cannot Access Affiliate Settings


My users can see the Affiliate tab in their back area but they cannot access it - they get an error message - see screenshot.

I do not see any settings in the admin area that could be causing this or that could resolve it.

I'm not running a MU site, just a regular WP instal. My theme is ProfitsTheme.

Thanks for the help.

    Hi Arun,

    The users are all Subscribers.

    No, I'm not going to change my Theme around, for risk of screwing something up. I've done that before and it hasn't worked out well a time or two - can't risk that with this site.

    This plugin must not be compatible with other non WPMU Dev Themes. It will be easier for me to find another solution, most likely, than deal with this. I don't even see an Admin Panel where I can adjust payout settings or anything.

    If you think it can't be fixed easily somehow please let me know.

    Now we have a complete insight into what we may be dealing with.

    Is this in fact the theme that we are trying to work with?

    This plugin must not be compatible with other non WPMU Dev Themes.

    Nice try - swapping to the default theme has nothing to do with WPMU Dev themes - and this conclusion about not being compatible with other non WPMU Dev Themes is based on testing with how many themes?

    Are we in fact talking about the exact same theme?

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe

    Greetings Jordan,

    Am I correct to conclude that WPMU Plugins (or at least the Affiliates plugin) are not compatible with this Profits Theme WP theme?

    I do not think it is an issue that the affiliates plugin is incompatible with Profit Themes, it would be more accurate to describe the issue is that it is not integrated with Profit Theme.

    It is currently integrated with Pro Sites and a few other plugins here but that is all the integration that has been done to date.

    Unfortunately Affiliate plugin needs specific integration to work, so even if using Profit Themes for example but running Pro Sites, it should work for Pro Sites when it is activated and keep track without incident.

    I hope this clarifies that the Affiliate plugin needs to be integrated into any product that it is to be used with. I do not think Welly Mulia has done this to the best of my knowledge.

    Maybe he might be interested in integrating this into his Profit Themes product, maybe one of us should ask him.

    Thank you for being a WPMU Dev Member!

    Cheers, Joe
