Installed but it doesn't work correctly. In AdminCP I get:


VigLink Affiliation
You are missing out on potential revenue for your website. We have noticed you are running the VigLink affiliation service but have not finished setting up your account. Click here to start earning money!




I click on the link and it takes me to my dashboard. It doesn't seem to be connecting the account.




Also, what if I have multiple boards ?

It should attempt to take you to our servers and redirect you - what is the URL of the link that redirects to your dashboard?

To link multiple IP.Boards, you simply use the same unique identifier across them (self-explanatory when you get passed the connect stage)

I was going to give this a shot since the Vigil site doesn't seem to detect my javascript code properly, but I see references in the hook code which download data via the IPB site. Is this something that can be avoided? I trust you guys, I just want a direct connection for various other reasons ;)

I'm having the same problem. The link in the dashboard takes me to the vigling dashboard.

It still says I haven't installed and wants me to embed the code. The API key I get from them is 32 characters long as well.



It's expecting you to sign up through the link provided by the hook. When you do that and use the generated key, it'll work. If you sign up on your own then it won't recognize you as being converted. The easiest thing to do is to make a new account using the link from the ACP.

Sorry for being a total newbie, but how does this work? xD (I've read the FAQ). English is not my main language so I guess that's why I don't understand. I tried the "demo" (which you can find in FAQ) and it said "Installed" on my site, so the demo should be working. What should I do now? My site is in no way related to any products you can buy btw. Thanks in advance, hope someone can clarify.

If the block in the Admin CP says you're converted (and shows 0 USD or however amount you've earned) then you are done and can pretend it doesn't exist. It will simply track links in the background and give you any commission that you are entitled to if someone purchases something.

For example here, if a person reading this topic follows this link http://www.gamestop.com, and then buys something from GameStop, these forums get a commission. Hope thats clear.

Correct, it works through the well known Google Affiliate Network, and a few others networks - only sites on these networks are tracked. The big ones are all there though :)

In your Admin CP dashboard, you should see a new block entitled 'VigLink Affiliation' asking you to click here if you want to turn the system on (note that you will have to log out of that account you made before hand, VigLinks systems creates an account through the IP.Board control panel, we can't link your forums to an existing account unfortunately).



After that, just check your page source code and search for viglink, it should show some results :)







Click here is sending me to register or sign in at viglink. Is that was is supposed to happen or is something not working correctly?

Ever since implementing this, some external links on my board and on IPS give a blank page when you click them, and clicking back and clicking again doesn't do it. I see it trying to contact viglink at the bottom, but then the page stays white and the url in the address bar is the one they came from or about:blank. :/
