Creating redirects in XsitePro

I wanted to know if someome can explain in the most simplest terms how to create a redirect for affiliate links
I watched the redirect video but I am still confused- I use xsitepro and html code (i know its probably simple) but its my first try at it.

Thanks, Nate

Hi Nate,

In xsitepro, go to Other > Redirect Pages and then follow the prompts for creating your redirect page. It's basically clicking the Add button and then filling in the fields. Enter your affiliate link in the "Redirect URL" field and enter the URL that you want for your redirect page in the "The URL for this page will be" field. It is best to set the Redirect Delay to 0.

Another option is to create your redirect page manually (see http://www.affilorama.com/site-building ... -redirects - the php redirect works best), upload the redirect page to your server, and insert the redirect page URL into your article page.

Most of us use the second option above.

I personally use the second option for creating .php redirects. It works a treat.

I make standalone redirect pages saved as .php files. I save these files in a folder called recommends and link to them from my other webpages.

so for example on my stbreladehotels.com website I link from my main page (stbreladehotels.com/index.html) to the corresponding hotel redirect (eg stbreladehotels.com/recommends/atlantic_hotel.php)

hope that helps

I also have question about redirecting in xsitepro.
I designed carousel of products on amazon and got the link - actually it is java script flash banner.
if someone would have time to tell me step by step how to redirect java script snippet please help.
What i did first is i added this script to the snippet library .
Than put little larger table in which i have included the snippet .
I used tables because i could not figure out how to wrap the text around just java snippet it worked better to wrap around the table.
So i have now yellow java picture in the table ( 120/500px)
Should i just click on the snippet and use insert link > redirect ?
It looks like my affiliate link on the bottom bar is still showing my id , but the page is not uploaded yet, will it change to shorter link after is on the server ?
Thanks Eva
