Hack info

What does it do? - Basically, you can allow registered board users to add Affiliation Links to the database, which have to be moderated by you...

Additional Info/Updates

This is really only to make sure this works - I am not sure about the Random part of it:) There are many things I plan to improve on, like a List of unmoderated Affiliate Links, a PM to the user if the Moderation is denied and a reason why, and some kind of notification to the Admins that a new Affiliate Link is posted...

Screenshots/Live Demo

At this time, there are no screenshots, or a Live Demo...If someone can provide them, thank you:)

Just a few questions, comments. Is it posssible to put an automatic expiration date on banners? Say you have someone that wants to buy one month of space. Can we specifiy a limit on banner size, in the signup script? Is there a way currently, to see how many hits a link gets? And possibly display this info to the affiliate? That's all for now....

@Smoothie - So far, this is meant for General use on a board, not for specific Time periods or what have you...

I suppose it could be possible to add a Time field, and have it expire...

With hits and limit size, that will be coming shortly after the Final Release:) It can be displayed to the Affiliate with a little bit of changing here and there:)
