From here, you have a number of customization options. Customizations are categorized by our two main product offerings: VigLink Convert and VigLink Insert. These preferences will allow you to determine which of your users are served affiliate links.
In our test forum, we have seven user groups: administrative, banned, moderating, premium member, registered, super moderators, and unregistered/unconfirmed.
If, for example, you want to show all users Convert links, select all boxes under “Convert User Groups.” If, for example, you want to show Insert links to unregistered/ unconfirmed users only, then you’d select unregistered/unconfirmed. Once you’ve selected your preferences, click “Save Changes.” You're all set!
