Question How do I make it so that after they put in their referral id number, and it shows up on their landing page links they get credit from the parent offer they will be promoting?
You would setup a member variable. Then, you would edit the link to include the ~~ code for the member variable inside of the link. For example, a link might look like: http://COMPANYBEINGPROMOTED.COM/FILENAME.php?id=~var1~
The example above shows how you would put the ~~ code inside of the link in the spot where the member's value should appear.
To do this go to member variables page (/admin/membervariables) and add a member variable for the about me section
Add it to a Page
Inside of an editable WYSIWYG section of a page add the code ~var#~ where you want the content to appear. Be sure to get the correct code where # is replaced with the number of the member variable. You can get the correct code either from the member variables page or from "View/Info" -> "Dynamic Info (~~)" in the page editor.
Test it Out
Go to the members page (/admin/members) and login as a member. Go to their profile (/admin/profile) and enter a value for their about me section. Then view the member's page where you added the member variable ~~ code and you will see the content there.
A. You can add input fields for members to add a value on the resource page. For example, if you are promoting a program you can easily add ~~ code below text or a video you make and then the ~~ is replaced with a form for a member to put their username for the program being promoted.
Tilde Codes to Use
Complete form with save button
An individual form field. Used when adding multiple inputs. You need to add a button with type="submit" to save the changes.
A. No, typically when changing a domain name you do not need to modify any of your content. The only time you need to is if you have any URLs using the full path of the old domain, then the URL (exa: links) would need to be fixed.
A. With a Pro system there is the option when editing the membership to indicate that the membership is free. If free, then you would need to see the id for the membership (look in the URL of the page when editing the membership and it will say ?id=*. The * is the id for the membership). Then, you would link to the join page using the link below putting the * for the membership and the USERNAME for the member that referred the new member.
