CJ tracking link question

3 replies
I'm new at CJ. I just started promoting a product from there and grabbed html code that has image in it. I did some modification on that link like added a caption and center aligned using wordpress features. I can see some extra code has been populated

Here how it was ( I removed the real link and traking ids)
<a onmouseover="window.status='productsitelink.com';r eturn true;" onmouseout="window.status=' ';return true;" href="trackingURL=SomeCodeNO" target="_blank"><img src="productsitelink.com/imageURL" alt="ALT tag" border="0" /></a><img src="OnePixelTrackingImage" alt="" width="1" height="1" border="0" />

Here how it is now [The Red stuff were added]
[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="455"]<a onmouseover="window.status='productsitelink.com';r eturn true;" onmouseout="window.status=' ';return true;" href="trackingURL=SomeCodeNO" target="_blank"><img "border: 0px;" src="productsitelink.com/imageURL" alt="ALT tag" width="455" height="500" border="0" /></a><img src="OnePixelTrackingImage" alt="" width="1" height="1" border="0" />SomeCaption[/caption]

will these extra attributes will cause commission loss? Any expert advice? My understanding is that these width/ borders shouldn't be a problem. But I would want to listen from you.

Thanks

    Those changes won't affect your affiliate link. You can even change the image or just use the aff link as a text link and it will still work as long as you don't touch anything in the url itself.

    That is fine. I add/modify visual elements all the time.

    Won't hurt but, and this may just be a typo in the code you listed but you have a space in the "return" statement:

    ;r eturn true;

    In case you were getting some errors...
