Amazon parser

Amazon parser 1.7

No permission to download
Description:

Adds Amazon affiliate ID to links in messages.

The Amazon parser add-on is used to convert Amazon links immediately after a message is saved. The converted links will include your Amazon affiliate ID.

(Example of Options page)



(Example of User group permissions)



Features:
  • Parses thread and conversation messages.
  • Different affiliate IDs can be added for each country.
  • Adds affiliate ID to Amazon product links.
  • Deletes any existing affiliate ID and adds your affiliate ID.
  • User group permissions allow bypass.
  • All phrases start with amazonparser_ for your convenience.
Installation:
  1. Download Andy-AmazonParser-1.7.zip and unzip it.
  2. Copy the src/addons/Andy/AmazonParser directory to your server.
  3. From the Admin Control Panel Install the add-on.
How it works:

When a member pastes one or more Amazon URLs into a message (after saving message), the add-on will parse the message looking for Amazon product links and make appropriate updates. A product link will have /dp/ or /gp/ in the URL.

User group permissions:

Normally you will not be required to change User group permissions. However the add-on has the ability to "Bypass" the default behavior and not parse the Amazon link, this can be useful in situations where you would like certain user groups to use their own affiliate ID. The "Bypass" permission would be set to Allow for that user group.

Question and Answers:

Q: Does this add-on support the "Unfurl URL to a rich preview automatically" function?

A simple add-on, but hands down the best XenForo add-on out there in terms of monetizing your site. Couldn't live without this add-on, literally!
Saves me a lot of unnecessary fiddling about with people's links.
