DFF_config.php Detailed Explanation
part of DFF Framework API
$DFF_config['debug'] = 1;
Turn on/off debug + error messages.
$DFF_config['affid'] = '1001';
0 = turn off / disable
any value greater than 0 will turn on debug.
For now just set value to numeric 1 to turn on debug. In the future we may use certain value greater than 0 to indicate certain debug feature.
$DFF_config['token'] = 'YTA4ZDkyMDI2MTMyZWU4MWFhN2EwMT';
Enter your DFF Affiliate ID here. DFF Affiliate ID is a numerical number greater than 1000. 1001 is known to be DFF's test affiliate ID. We use 1001 when showing examples.
If you do not have a DFF Affiliate ID, you need to Sign-up free as affiliate here
If you are already an affiliate of DFF, you will find your affiliate ID #, on the top right corner of web page after you login.
$DFF_config['domain'] = 'YourDomainName.com';
Enter your DFF Token here. Your DFF Token is a long alphanumeric sequence of characters which serves as lightweight security to properly identify you as the same authorized user of your DFF affiliate ID # / account while performing queries. DFF Token is usually only needed when performing pure data retrieval queries such as JSON / XML queries.
You can set or reset your DFF Token from Affiliate Login > Settings > DFF Token
NOTE: Reseting your DFF Token to a new value while already using a previous DFF Token value, may cause your scripts to stop working. It is best to always use DFF Token via a Global / Public variable such as this $DFF_config['token'] variable, so that you only have 1 location to update to change all DFF Token value for your whole web site.
Enter your domain name here. Without the sub-domain prefix.
$DFF_config['site_name'] = 'Your Site Name Here';
Example if your web site URL is: www.mywebsite.com, just enter 'mywebsite.com' here.

$DFF_config['site_title_separator'] = '-';
