Format change for referral links

Tangie

Some of you may have already noticed that we have recently changed the format of the referral links - previous thread here.

The change is not major, you actually need to add #res12345 at the end of any site link, where 12345 is always replaced by your referral code. The referral code as well as referral links to major site pages can be retrieved from the referral page in your management area:
Referral program
We recommend you to replace the old format links with the new generic format #res12345 as the new system is much easier and works with any page of the website.

The old links are still functional and if you come across errors or bugs, please report them to support as soon as possible.

Spread the word, recommending Dreamstime is now easier with our new generic referral links.

It doesn't work with collections, does it?

For example if I use http://www.dreamstime.com/cascading-rcollection19859#res239750
instead of the one supplied at the collections page: http://www.dreamstime.com/cascading-rcollection19859-resi239750
The first link doesn't open!

Eliane, you need to add this to the link as you find it on the site. You do not modify an already existing referral link.
The correct link to your collection is http://www.dreamstime.com/cascading-colldet19859. So you need to add the new format to this link.
The resulting format is:
http://www.dreamstime.com/cascading-colldet19859#res239750

And it works.

That's great. I couldn't get collections to work previously either.
Thanks!

Tangie, does using tinyurl links mess up the referral links?

P.S. I searched the forum but didn't find an answer!

Tinyurl doesn't affect the referral link but it is preferable that you use the direct link.

Ok great, thanks :)
If it's preferable so that to inform people it's a referral link, no worries, it will be clearly stated. If it's preferable for other reasons, please tell me why!
