    Plugin owner's CB ID shown every alternate hit! Means if you installed this plugin, your 50% revenue from CB will go to Owagu's (the plugin owner) pocket! Beware!

    artmania,
    your remarks are incorrect.

    The script actually runs a randomizer and based on a random number it will show a different ID in approx. every 4th hit. Naturally since this is a randomizer it may happen that it won't show another ID for 10 times, and maybe sometimes it may show another ID twice in a row.

    This is easily verified by people who know their PHP, furthermore this is clearly spelled out in the text.

    Beware, this smells scam all over!!!! Owagu you are a skillful person both in telling lies and in programming. you did the widget so it shows the installers hop id only the first 2 times (just enough for a quick test) and thereafter it's all Owagu owagu owagu ....bravo!!!. This is fraud "419". your name certainly sounds like one from the 419 country....ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!

    domainkcl you make unfounded claims. You are a skillful person both in telling fairytales and in ... {biting my tongue}

    Any person that knows a little bit about wordpress and svn knows that the code is public for everyone to see. Since you are probably not aware we'll help you a bit ... go here :

    http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/

    now find our plugin, then go buy a book and learn about PHP. The following code can be found in our plugin. Based on random owagu will show if $co is higher than 7 ! If 7 or lower the other ID will show.
    Since random is not superexactly random in PHP there may be a small deviation in percentages.

    $co = rand(1, 10);
    if ( $co > 7 ) {$user=owagu;}

    sorry for my out burst which could have been a tranferred agression. I guess I still have a lot to learn around the wordpress. Is it not possible to get a widget that will be for me and me alone. Could I not modify the one you have so I get all the clicks directed to my hop??? he he he he.. Sorry once again..

    What would I need to modify here if possible? Hope you are not too angry to reply?

    anyone is free to modify any wordpress plugin as they see fit, provided they leave reference to the license and courtesy to the developer.

    Thanks @owagu for writing a clear and simple plugin and explaining up front your compensation.

    Before this discussion gets too heated... Making wild and racist accusations is never a good idea on public forums.

    I've been a member of WordPress.org forums for nearly 8 years. I have reviewed the code for the 2.0 version of the plugin and verify that it does nothing nefarious. Don't take my word for it - check it out yourself.
