Page telling visitors they are going to merchants site

Submitted by paddyman on Tue, 2014-01-14 07:36 in

Hi David,

Just wondering if it's possible to have a page in-between my affiliate site and merchant site similar to when you click buy on the following page {link saved}. I saw this on a long time ago but can't track it down.

Would make my site more transparent, and also I think would allow for the creation of a goal in google analytics to see where my visitors were leaving my site.

Hi Adrian,

Sure - start with the alternative jump.php from this comment which is from a thread concerning the use of Google Analytics on the jump page. At the point in the code where you see:

<!-- Google Analytics Code Here -->

...simply replace with whatever HTML you wish to present to your users as they leave your site.

You may want a longer delay than 1 second, which you can change in the following line:

  print "<meta http-equiv='refresh' content='1;url=".$product["buy_url"]."' />";

If you wish to include the merchant name in your HTML it will need to be added to the SELECT so where you have this code:

  $sql = "SELECT filename,buy_url FROM `".$config_databaseTablePrefix."products`

...REPLACE with:

  $sql = "SELECT merchant,filename,buy_url FROM `".$config_databaseTablePrefix."products`

And then in your HTML you could use, for example:

Thank you for visiting!
You are now being directed to <?php print $product["merchant"]; ?>
