You may have noticed we have taken down our Christmas banner, today we have replaced it with a rewardStyle banner, which we will update regularly.


rewardStyle is a company that allows publishers to get the credit they deserve when advertising products. For example, if you use rewardStyle and a visitor to your blog clicks on an item and then goes ahead and buy the item of clothing you (the publisher) will gain some commission.


Let’s get started!


Firstly you need to signup for a rewardStyle api account here, as it is exclusive I can not show you the backend of the rewardStyle site.


Once signed up, login and select the button to create an App.


You will also need to sign up to runscope this is so you can generate an oauth token online and avoid lots of code. From signing up to runscope you will gain the OAuth redirect_uri:


Now go back onto rewardStyle you will see your new app in the lefthand column, click on and and it will reveal the app details.


Now go on this link and fill out the details:


NB:Make sure you spell favourites the American way.


When you click the blue button you will be taken to the rewardStyle login page to sign in or straight to authentication page.


Click to Authorize.


You will be taken back to runscope, the highlighted detail is what you will need:

Add this to your header.php file on your WordPress Site:


The highlighted section from above in runscope goes here in the code:


Now go back onto rewardStyle, chose the items that go into your chosen folder, you will need to make your own folder. In order to do this search for products you wish to show on your site.


Add the images to favourites under a file name, I have chosen to create one called ‘thefashiontechnologist’.


Complete this again till you have all of your products you wish to show in the header.


Now we need to add the css, add this code to the bottom of your style.css file:


You are finished!!
