Note: If you have already connected the older Rakuten-based program, there is no need to remove it, as we will give precedence to your new Impact program settings.

Fixed issue where "default" groups were not being listed correctly once renamed

We fixed an issue affecting users who renamed their "default" link group. On certain dashboard pages, this issue resulted in the group being listed under the name "default" instead of the correct, custom name.

Fixed incorrect reporting of no connected affiliate programs

Last week, one of our services began reporting incorrect information about connected affiliate programs. This caused the following:

  • The Geniuslink dashboard may have stated that you were not connected to certain programs.
  • Our Wordpress plugin, Amazon Link Engine, was incorrectly stating that all programs were not connected to your Geniuslink account.
  • Other system messages that depended on knowledge of your connected programs may have given false information. Ie, recommendations of programs to join, and messages about your "commission potential".

This issue has been resolved.
