    So Im responding for another issue and I have no clue where to submit it…honeslty your acces to support suck really really bad…I mean I have to log in to fill in a ticket…but i dont have an account…so th only option is to reset password…but I dont get one……Seriously Ive been figuring your support system out for the whole morning, this just doesnt add up at all

    Anyways your recaptcha pluging is mailfunction (i also see it hasnt been updates for 3 yers??) It worked last week, than I add a reCaptcha to another form via elementor (so I copy pasted the exact V2 keys in Elementor integrations)……..and than all of a sudden the reCaptcha doesnt work anymore at the registration affilaite page. And yes yes I did everything coorect, its V2 generated multiple time new keys, cleared cache.

    Currently I have set the lementor recaptcha at V3 (so other keys) and Affilaite recaptcha at v2…..still not working….

    And again…make your support system more transparant, this is hugely frustrating…I mean with YITH affilaite there is a support email which get responded the same morning………………….

      Hi Hugo,

      The Affiliates reCAPTCHA still works correctly, although the extension’s compatibility info has not been updated, I can confirm that our tests with the latest version of WordPress show that it works fine. Of course we should update it to reflect that. The source of your problem seems to be with what you try to achieve with Elementor, if the recommended use does not work within an Elementor block, then they’re simply not compatible.

    Hi great plugin. I am aa bit confused though regarding linking a coupon-code to an affiliate: I understand that it should be possible via attributes, but I cant find it. Is that available in the free version?

    • Kento October 9, 2020 at 2:45 pm #

      Hi Hugo,

      Thanks for the question, coupons are supported with Affiliates Pro and Affiliates Enterprise. You can see details in the documentation for Affiliates Pro under Coupons or for Affiliates Enterprise on Coupons. Extended features are available with the Affiliates Coupons extension which you will find documented here.
