Hello, I have received my very 1st affiliate relationship with CJ (commission Junction). I have been successful adding text links to my site, however I am having a heck of time trying to add a banner or image. I go through the same process to get the banner/image link. It still shows at code or text. I copy the link and paste it to my site and it still displays as text or code...... it will not show the banner/image. I've tried the HTML and the Java........ just cant seem to get the image. Can someone help me with this? Thank you, Wes

When pasting the code, you need to make sure you are pasting it into the TEXT editor. If you are putting a banner on a blog post, you need to flip from "VISUAL" to "TEXT". If you are adding it to a widget, you need to use an HTML widget or TEXT widget, but flip from visual to text as described above.

Another common mistake when adding links is that people often try to add full HTML code to the link box in WordPress.

If your affiliate program gives you a bunch of code with iFrame, or angle brackets (><), or javascript, etc, you should NOT put that in the WordPress "make a link" box.

Take a look at this training, and you'll see what I mean: Even though that training is for affiliate networks you might not be working with, the principles are the same.

To properly make a link, your link should start with https:// and there should be no symbols at the end of the code. If you see quotes ("") in your code somewhere, then you probably have the wrong code!

Here's how to properly make a link: So then, why would your affiliate program give you all that jumbled code if you don't need it? Some people just copy/paste the code as-is into the TEXT editor inside WordPress.

You can see the link-insert button vs the text editor in this training here: I hope that helps! If you're still having issues, you can paste the link into a private message to me, or send me a screenshot of the link and I can help out further.
