For WordPress: Affiliate Link Cloak Plugin 0.5.1 Beta

November 8th, 2008

I released a Plugin in August that was not fully compatible with WordPress 2.6+. That post was here : For WordPress: Affiliate Link Cloak Plugin.

The issue lay with how WordPress handles global variables. The most recent versions of WordPress import plugins within a function which screws with variable scope.

The issue has now been resolved – so the plugin is now working in WordPress 2.6+ versions.

This plugin allows you to cloak your affiliate links so that readers of your site will not know that you are including your affiliate details on links to sites that you recommend to them. Full details can be gained from my original post : For WordPress: Affiliate Link Cloak Plugin.

Any issues – please leave a comment…

    Hey mate, I just noticed that the actual date (number for the day) of the month isn’t being displayed in the admin table in the created column. I added a “j” to the “date(” function in my version and it’s there now…

    Just thought you might like to know. I really like your plugin by the way…

    Hi mcnicholl, thanks for your plugin, Affiliate Link Cloak. It works charm and so far I’ve not found any errors just yet.
    I tried working GoCodes out but can’t seem to get it work, that’s not until I found yours.
    I’ll wait for further updates, thanks!
