We are pleased to announce the free release of ForumYield Affiliate Rewriter

Boost your forum's profit with three or more different streams of income when you implement the Forum Yield Affiliate Rewriter.

When members enter Amazon, eBay, or Commission Junction links in their posts, they are automatically rewritten with your Affiliate ID in the link for that particular network.
  • eBay links, it adds your Campaign ID
  • Amazon Links it adds your Associate ID
  • Commission Junction links it adds your PID
You can also have it rewrite posts so keywords or phrases of your choice will be affiliate links from these or different networks. Case sensitivity may be turned on or off in the settings.

A popular use of the keyword rewriting section is to link keywords to the search form of your affiliate's website with your affiliate id this way you can have it search for numerous different product names automatically when they click the link with each search term changed to the keyword.

If you have users with premium memberships who do not wish to see the keywords rewritten, you can disable keyword rewriter for those groups in the settings.

Requires import of a single xml file, no uploads to the filesystem.

Im thinking about adding this but I need one more bit of functionality.

Can you make this so that RSS posts from Ebay and Amazon are also linked to the Ebay , Amazon and so on affiliate ID's.

If you can pull that off Ill be more then happy to make a donation.

What would make the rewrite work on some of my forums and not others?
Ok it seems to be because i'm the admin but not sure

UPDATE: Seems the rewritter is not working now for some reason,it may just be for me (admin) but i will keep a check on it and see if i can provide any useful info
thanks

This mod should be removed immediately. This is definitely against the TOS for eBay and all other affiliate networks.

Already had one user's account terminated from eBay. Maybe we need a couple more before this becomes a problem. But cloaking or changing links to make it look like something else is not going to fly with eBay and they are quick to terminate accounts.

@Kolbi -I've not had any problems of being kicked from affiliated programs...been using it for about 4 months or better now. Just don't do an overkill and make it rewrite every word as a link and you should be fine.

Why does in your rewritten ebay urls never appears the pub id?

And why do you use the java version of the individuell link?

Use the HTML version because it is xhtml valid!


Is there we possibility to save the keyword replacements in the database and not only overwrites it then viewing the topic?
I mean the replacement should be safed and not be loaded every time.

Could you elaborate as to why you think this is against the TOS of affiliate networks? This isn't link cloaking... it's link masking.. which isn't against the rules...

Would you mind elaborating a bit on your stance or the TOS's? Thanks.

I have updated some of the parsing on eBay links and also noticed lately that I have to try multiple advertiser id's for advertisers on CJ to make sure it will go to the correct URL when you click on it (one advertiser can have multiple AID numbers, so find the right one or their URLs wont work.)
