How to Add Text and Display Links in Posts and Pages

Adding Lasso affiliate links with the Classic Editor and Gutenberg in WordPress.

There are two ways to add Lasso affiliate links to your content: text and displays.

Lasso plays well with WordPress. So if you ever added a link in a post with WordPress, then adding a Lasso link works the same way.

When you add a link, you'll notice on the right side it'll say LASSO LINK in all caps. That's how you know you're adding a Lasso link.ย 

It's as simple as just adding an internal link.

In the post or page editor, you can click the Lasso cactus icon. First, the pop-up modal will ask which type of display you'd like to add.*

Then, depending on which Display you choose, it'll either pull up a list of all your Lasso Links or Groups and allow you to add a shortcode to your content.

Clicking the "Add" button will add the shortcode to your post that'll create an affiliate link Display when you view it on the live site.

Adding Displays With Gutenberg

In the post or page Gutenberg editor, create a new Lasso Block.

From there, it works the same way as the classic editor. Click the block to engage the Lasso Display modal. Choose your display type, then the URL or Group.

This will add a Lasso Block with the Lasso shortcode.

NOTE: If you're seeing your Amazon links getting cloaked in the Gutenberg editor, don't worry. In Gutenberg editor, we can't change the permalink to an Amazon link because WordPress doesn't support it. But after you update the post, the permalink will be changed to an Amazon link.

* Certain Display types are only available with paid subscriptions
