Attribution Query String Manager


This tool will scan links with the specified domains for the query string variables listed below and ensure that they are updated with the appropriate values. These valued can be defined by:

  1. Post/Page settings
  2. URL
  3. Client Side Cookie
  4. Server Session Cache
  5. Defaults (in the global admin)

The list above indicates the order of override – in short, settings for a post/page will cause mismatching values set via url to be ignored. Note: This processing will only apply to material output via the_content() (this includes pages & posts).

For example – if the domain is and the query string variables defined are “affiliateID” and “trafficSource”, any links to would have the affiliateID & trafficSource query string variables appended. If they are already in the link’s url, it will update those variables to the correct values.
