We use a plugin to display a modal login/register form. I’m not sure what’s going on but it seems that new users are not tied to their referring affiliate when they create a new account.
Since I was under the impression the plugin uses the standard way to log/register users according to the WP Codex I’m a bit surprised but this is most likely related to the use of the plugin. I have created a new user using the default WP page without the modal login plugin and the user was associated with the right affiliate.
Would there be anything I can forward to the plugin author for them to patch this issue or is there maybe something we can do to force the association with new users?
