I want to add affiliates buttons to my forum, but I can't figure it out.

Can anyone help?

You'll need to activate the forum widgets.(you can also use the portal too)

Administration Panel > Modules > Portal & Widgets > Forum Widgets Management

Tick 'yes' for Display Widgets, Apply 180px to column 1/3 or both so they display, then hit save.

You can add or remove widgets from the forum by dragging and dropping widgets in 'Forum widgets management' once you're finished save. Affiliates should be one of the default widgets.

You're using HTML, correct? If so the correct input should look like this.(I'll use my forum as an example if its acceptable)
Code:
<a href="http/gamecrave.forumotion.com/forum" target="_blank"><img src="http/i79.servimg.com/u/f79/18/21/60/73/gc10.png" alt="Game Crave" title="Game Crave"></a>

- Linking -

href="" - href attribute specifies the URL of a page, your url will go between the double quotes.

target="_blank" - will open the specified url in a new tab

- Images -

img src="" - is the source of your image affiliated with the url; img will be between the href attribute(<a href=""><img src=""></a>) that will make it clickable by a guest/user.

alt="Game Crave" - is the alternate texts to be displayed if a browser does not support images.

title="Game Crave" - is the texts to be displayed when a user hovers their mouse over the image/url

I'm not sure if I explained it ALL correctly since I'm still learning, but that's the basis of setting up an affiliate link using images.

You can use this blank HTML temp to fill in your desired information.
Code:
<a href="FORUM URL" target="_blank"><img src="IMAGE URL" alt="ALT TEXTS" title="TITLE TEXTS"></a>

You will place the finished HTML code within the affiliates widget. If you have multiple affiliates you can use a line break(<br />) to create a vertical row.
