The Affiliate Content block makes any block placed inside it only visible to a logged-in (and active) affiliate.

The user configuring the block can set the number of creatives to show (default is 20) and toggle the display the image/text preview.

If you see a No creatives were found message within the block, check that you have creatives added and they’re active. Go to Affiliates → Creatives to add or edit creatives.

Affiliate Creative block

The Affiliate Creative block displays a single creative on your website. The selected creative will only be visible to a logged in (and active) affiliate.

When viewed from within the WordPress editor, the user configuring the block can select between the affiliate’s ID or username, show pretty affiliate URLs, set a custom URL, or use the default options configured from AffiliateWP’s settings.

If the user happens to also be an affiliate, they will be shown a real preview of their own affiliate ID or username.
