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.
In addition to the Amazon Parser add-on, you will want to install the companion Amazon Parser All add-on.

The Amazon Parser All add-on is used to verify all Amazon links are properly converted on your forum. You will want to run this add-on once every few months.

(Example of User Group Permissions)


  • 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 Override
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.

Note: a product link will have /dp/ or /gp/ in the URL.

  1. Download and unzip it.
  2. Upload the Andy folder to your server. The correct location is library/Andy.
  3. From your Admin Control Panel, go to the "Install Add-on" page.
  4. Upload the addon-AmazonParser_v3.6.xml file.
  5. Click the Install Add-on button.
User Group Permissions:

Normally you will not be required to change User Group Permissions. However the add-on has the ability to "Override" 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 "Override" permission would be set to Allow for that user group.

great add-on, it's what i need, straightforward and very easy to use. And could you please add a input option for :)

Works well for me! Making a few dollars that I wasn't seeing otherwise! I used to search for amazon links and replace them with an affiliate link, but that didn't give me the results I am seeing with this addon. Thanks AndyB!
