    From my testing so far, this works only for links posted after you install it, right? It doesn't change old links.
  4. Is there a limit to how many domains can be converted to affiliate urls?

    Just a few questions/suggestions...

    Can it handle replacing existing affiliate code in the posted link? I ask this because people leave their own affiliate links on your board and you might not be able to locate them all. If this can be added in the future, this could become a solid affiliate add-on.

    As mentioned above, changing existing links would also mean a lot.

    Another feature suggestion in case you are looking for some... Make it more flexible. Right now you can only create codes that work like this: ?affid=XYZ.

    Some of the companies I deal with have more complex requirement with multiple attributes. Here is an example...

    OMG runs their code like this:
    There is another company that adds multiple values at the end of the link: &utm_source=aff_prog&utm_campaign=afts&offer_id=16&aff_id=5080

    These two improvements alone would make it impressively useful for me! Thanks.

    @AndyB this is working nicely for me, thanks, but I noticed that basic affdomain.com links don't get affiliated. The affiliate program I'm using allows me to affiliate that as well in an "affdomain.com/?pp=13354" format - any chance you could add that as an option if not default?

    Edit: also noticed that links like this link don't get affiliated either. Any chance of adding that too?

    How does this work? Does it rewrite the URL:s for every pageload like Skimlinks does (javascript)? Or does it only parse URL:s posted after the installation? What happens with the parsed URL:s if I uninstall the addon later down the road?

    Edit: Got a response from Andy

    This add-on doesn't seem to be compatible with Chris Auto Link Titles. Ref ID will not appear for new posts as long as it's active.

    Sorry if my Q is a bit stupid but can this addon handle multiple Affilate links?

    Would love to include more than one affiliate program

    Does this work with HTTPS URLs? I can't seem to get it to work anymore. I did also upgrade to XF 1.5.12 recently, but I think the affiliate switching to HTTPS might be the culprit.
