Can I use both Affiliate ID and Affiliate User Name

On my affiliate page, I would like to give them the options to see or use both the URL for the affiliate ID or the affiliate Name.

I have installed the affiliate ID plugin.
Can I also have the affiliate username installed and use them both?

      if you only need to show the url, you can use:

    I tried your link in the HTML section of the affiliate page and it did not work

    the text on the page when the user signs in looks like this

    Your affiliate URL with your username is:
    <a href=”//[/affiliates_by_username]” >Affiliate link</a>

      Can you please post the exact shortcode used that produces this?

    I have installed the plugin
    and on my affiliates page I have the appropriate shortcodes however, the one to display the URL with the username is not working

    Please look at my links below
    the one for the ID and the URL works fine
    but the format for the username is wrong

    Your affiliate ID is: [affiliates_id] (works great)

    Your affiliate URL with your username is:[affiliates_by_username]
    (doesn’t work)

    <a href=”[affiliates_url]" rel="nofollow">Affiliate link</a> (works great)

      Hi Delbra,

      This would be the correct form:

      <a href="[affiliates_by_username][affiliates_url][/affiliates_by_username]">Affiliate link</a>

      The difference is that the username shortcode encapsulates the URL shortcode.

    yes, with the plugin installed you can use both ids and names (e.g. ?affiliate=21 and ?affiliate=johnm)
