Affilimate is compatible with the vast majority of caching, CDN, and hosting solutions.
In a few situations, you may need to adjust a few settings to allow Affilimate to crawl your site for affiliate links and generate heatmaps.
Note: Just because a caching solution or CDN is not listed here, does not mean it is not compatible. It only means we have not encountered problems with it, requiring adjustments.
In this article:
- Caching plugins
Affilimate is compatible with NitroPack and will crawl your site and render your sitemap using the nonitro query parameter so as to get the freshest copy of your links and heatmaps.
If using the extreme settings of WP Rocket, you may need to exclude https://snippet.affilimate.io in two places:
W3 Total Cache
Affilimate is compatible with W3 total cache.
WP Super Cache
Affilimate is compatible with WP super cache.
Make sure you have Bot Fight Mode disabled in Cloudflare under Firewall > Bots.
If you are using a paid Cloudflare plan, you should also have Super Bot Fight Mode disabled.
Affilimate is compatible with Ezoic's CDN.
Compatible Hosting providers
Affilimate works out of the box with most hosting providers. In a few rare exceptions, you may need to request that our user agents or IP addresses can access your site.
If you have trouble scanning your site for affiliate links, BigScoots support may need to whitelist the following user agents and IPs for you in Cloudflare:
- IP Range (CIDR): 10.128.0.0/20
- Default Gateway: 10.128.0.1
- Usable addresses (inclusive): 10.128.0.2 to 10.128.15.253
If you have trouble scanning your site for affiliate links, Bluehost support may need to make some adjustments to allow our site scan to pass through their mod_security firewall.
Contact Bluehost and ask them to check for any mod_security errors in the logs related to Affilimate's site scan and then whitelist the mod_security block on their server.
