after I change values here: ?page=wp_aff_platform_settings” and hit save, I get a 404. Settings do not get saved. WP 3.0.1November 4, 2010 at 12:11 am #26045
This error usually happens when your mod_security rule is not setup correctly. The value of the “Index Page Message” has some HTML in it. So if the mod_security is not setup correctly when it goes to save it thinks someone is trying to inject bad query so it gives a 404.
If you just keep a few lines of plain text without any HTML code in the “Index Page Message” field then it should let you save. Please try this so I know for sure that this is the issue.January 20, 2011 at 7:23 pm #26046feliciaslatteryMember
I am having this same problem.
I’ve deactivated and deleted and reinstalled the plugin – and it won’t let me save the settings page even if I make no changes.
Is this a PHP error on my server?
Is there a fix that I can implement?January 21, 2011 at 4:32 am #26047wpCommerceModerator
Hi, The reason for this is explained in the post just above you. Please go to the settings menu of the affiliate plugin and delete whatever content is in the “index page message” field then put some simple text in there. Now hit “save”. Let me know if that saves the settings.July 20, 2011 at 10:22 pm #26048
I would like to put bold text etc on my Index Page Message but cannot save. Does this mean it will look boring because I can only have a few lines of text? I even typed what YOU have on yours to see if it would accept it and it won’t. How did you do it Tips And Tricks HQ?July 21, 2011 at 2:16 am #26049
Well, essentially if you fix the “mod_security” rule on your server then this is not an issue anymore. Our server is configured properly so we don’t have this issue.
An easy alternative for you would be to explain the details of your affiliate program in a standard WordPress page. For example: the following page explains our affiliate program:
We then send all of our potential affiliates to the above page (this serves as a landing page for our affiliates).July 22, 2011 at 7:48 am #26050
Thank you. I’m happy to set up the mod_security rule on my storm server. Can you explain it simply or is it a really complicated thing? I also have great customer service at LiquidWeb who can help.
Thank you. ♥July 23, 2011 at 3:12 am #26051
I added an alternate method to save the index page content in the plugin. Lets see if it can bypass the issue.August 12, 2011 at 12:55 am #26052
My hosting company changed the mod_security rule and it works fine now.August 12, 2011 at 1:29 am #26053
Glad to hear that.. I like it when the hosting company takes an initiative and fix up their server configuration mistake
