|There's not a simple configuration variable that allows you to change the affiliate cookie expiration time, but here are instructions on how to make a quick modification to the script:|
STEP 1: Make a backup of your current "ushop-lib.pl" script... just in case.
STEP 2: Open your "ushop-lib.pl" script with any text editor such as WordPad.
STEP 3: Do a search on the following line:
$time_to_expire = time + 604800; # Expire in one week.
STEP 4: Change the "604800" seconds in that line to your desired time. For instance, if you wanted it to expire in 30 days, change that line to:
$time_to_expire = time + 2592000; # Expire in 30 days.
(Where 2592000 was calculate by multiplying 86400 seconds per day X 30 days)
STEP 5: Save the file... as TEXT if your editor asks... and try it out!
