OK a couple of things. I am hoping that one way or another we can come up with a solution.
1) Following the JROX instructions In the last post, I created a thank you page and put the php code there (I am using the exec-php plugin). That script does call for &custom_mid=”.$_COOKIE. which I realize paypal has no clue about. Any Idea how I can get paypal to get and send that cookie back to my thank you page?
2) According to this post http://forums.jrox.com/index.php/topic,1416.msg6047.html#msg6125 “apparently we CAN have more than one script using paypal IPN the trick is to code the IPN into the actual BUY NOW button using
notify_url right in the code”. Please see the comment from JROX admin following that. Does this mean that I can use the method from my first post? If so where would I put that code?
…and currently my paypal ipn is http://www.mydomainname.net/affiliates/plugins/payments/paypal/plugin_paypal_payments.php
does any of this affect that setting.
Your help would be greatly appreciated as I did not anticipate this delay because I was able to make JROX work with the simple shopping cart and I am due to launch my affiliate program this evening on a conference call.
