Referral page problem??
08/29/04 at 15:29:54
 
If I surf to the referral page stated on my members page

 ie:  http://www.traffictornado.com/x/ref.cgi/3777/

the links on THAT page dont contain MY referral ID when I track them through to a sign-up, but still have the original ones that existed before I updated my details.  However, the links show on the description page
   
    ie.  http://traffictornado.com/x/p.cgi/3777/  

DO have my referral link contained in them

Is this meant to be the case?  Or have I missed something while I was setting up?

thanks

I don't see that here. They are showing  the correct  links with several different browsers here.
Is this still the same now ?
Which browser are you using ?

That is the case ... it shows 3777, BUT when you click on the link, and then go through a JOIN-UP process, the referrer shown on the join-up page is not me, but the member I signed up for in my setup page.

However, when I use the description page, the join-up process will in that case show 3777

thanks for your quick reply

Sorry - forgot to mention - Im using Mozilla in a Linux environment for my browser.

Ahh.. there may not be a problem.  - I went to site /x/?3777 using Galeon browser, and the links were OK - I followed a couple through to the initial join-up page and I was showing as the referrer. Galeon also works if I use /x/ref.cgi/3777

When I use Mozilla, and go to /x/ref.cgi/?3777, what happens is :

   page x/?3777/ is displayed but the links are the OLD ones.

But... if I go to x/?3777 direct, then the links are correct

Basically looks to me as if MOZILLA is the problem, possibly caused by the fact that Ive logged in and out a few times in different windows etc.  I tried clearing Mozilla history, but that  didn
work either.

Would you mind going to /x/ref.cgi/?3777 in your browsers  - see who the referrer is, and whether or not that tracks thru to an initial join up page with my referral ID? .  Sorry to ask this, just want to be sure that it works before I start using iit !

many thanks

Des

Can you check it again now.
I think I may have solved this. Should work in all browsers.
