I have installed the WP Affiliate Platform. It looks very nice. I am attempting to add links in the Affilliate site pages that will send the user back to my Blog (were the plug-in is installed). My Blog site is: http://www.gs-softwaresolutions.com , I am using the plugin with WP ecommerce.
I will appreciate any suggestions and help you can provide.

If I believe you are trying to add “Banners” for your products… this video tutorial should explain everything on this:June 15, 2010 at 12:13 am #21743
No, I am not trying to ad “Banners” for my products. When I access the WP Affiliate pages on my blog, there is a navigation bar at the top of the pages that allow me to navigate through the different Affiliate Platform pages. I want to add a navigation link to each of these pages that will allow my affiliates to navigate back to by blog. As it is now setup, if an affiliate clicks on the logoff link he/she is directed to the Log in page. There is no method to keep the affiliate on my blog. I am trying to add a “Blog” link to the navigation bar that will take the affiliate to my Blog home page, http://www.gs-softwaresolutions/net when the “Blog” link is clicked. Is there a way to do this?

Ah I see.. yeah you can add a blog link in the navigation menu with a little tweak.
Open the “header.php” file from the “affiliates” directory (this is inside the “wp-affiliate-platform” directory) and search for the following:
<li><a href="logout.php"><?php echo AFF_NAV_LOGOUT; ?></a></li>
once you find it add something like the following immediately below it:
That should do it. The only problem is that the navigation menus are sized so they fit nicely within the width… if you introduce another menu you may need to make the font size smaller so all of them can fit. Making the font site smaller is very easy if you have a bit of CSS knowledge.
Another solution is to place your blog’s link in the footer of every page. You can do so by modifying the “footer.php” file.
