I'm looking for a way to let affiliates rebrand content pages before they promote the pages.
I don't want them to download the pages to their own machine; the files must stay on my server - I only want them to be able to customize their personal affiliate pages.
I want them to promote my site like affiliates normally do; but they must be able to customize their personal promo page (add their own header, footer & Name) - so when they send out their affiliate link; people who click it see my site; but with the header, footer and name of the affiliate on it.
This was the advice I received:
Then PHP includes are your answer. A simple example woud be:
Affiliate send their traffic to your sales page with their id (typical)
[url removed, login to view]
You would need some sort of database of flat file to contain the affiliate id, their name, and/or whatever other information you want to use to personalize the page.
Then in your page text, use PHP variables to display the affiliate info.
You would need to call that info prior to the page loading in the browser from the db or file by the affid.
(An example of what i need can be found inside the (free) members area at [url removed, login to view])
