Configuration

This plugin strips out all referral links in posts and replaces them with your Amazon Associates ID or other supported affiliate ID.

:mega: This change will only affect new and future posts. To have the change affect all existing posts, you will need to do a full post rebake once you set your affiliate ID.

If you set the Site Setting affiliate amazon com to say sams-shop, when people link ANYTHING from amazon.com the plugin will auto append tag=sams-shop and strip out all the existing referral links.

So for example:

https://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Quest-Echoes-Elusive-Age-PlayStation/dp/B07BP3J6RG/

Will be auto converted to:

https://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Quest-Echoes-Elusive-Age-PlayStation/dp/B07BP3J6RG/ref=br_asw_pdt-5?tag=sams-shop

Site Settings

  • affiliate enabled: Enable the Affiliate plugin.
    If you change this, you must rebake all posts with: rake posts:rebake.

  • affiliate amazon com: Your amazon.com (United States) Associates ID. The links will be transformed only for all amazon.ca links using the value entered here.

You will see many more settings such as affiliate amazon co jp, affiliate amazon com au, affiliate amazon ca, enter your Associate ID depending on which country programs you have registered for.

Run Tests

Run bundle exec rake plugin:spec["discourse-affiliate"]

It seems, that the fairly new amzn.eu shortlinks are not rewritten by the plugin, does anyone have the same issue?

I don’t there are any plans at the moment, but pinging @zogstrip to see if he has any thoughts about this addition.

I’d be happy to have the plug-in support this new domain.

@jrgong would you like to make a pull request to add support for this domain?

I am not a developer, so I won’t be able to do that unfortunately. But maybe @Ahmed_Gagan can do that :slight_smile:

Hi @zogstrip
Yes I can make a PR for the fix.
