[resolved] Link localization (6 posts)

    Love this plugin, however I'd really like to make use of link localization, as a non-trivial percentage of my traffic comes from non-US visitors.

    The most popular plugin for this doesn't seem to do anything with ASA:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/amazon-affiliate-link-localizer/

    And I found what looked like a hidden inbuilt function for this in AsaCore.php to replace country based IDs with your own (which actually ticked me off at first - I'd be fine if there was a disclaimer telling me this) but it doesn't seem to actually change anything?

    /**
         * my tracking id's which will be used if the user doesn't have one
         * (for all my good programming work :)
         */
        protected $my_tacking_id = array(

    So what's the best way to make the links localize with your plugin?

    Thanks for all your work on it.

    Thanks for your request. You are right, this piece of code does not do anything as long as a user has his own tracking id, which is always the case. This code is only a fallback and very old (from the first days of the plugin). I will remove it for the next update!

    Link localization is a feature of the next version ASA2 and is already working in the dev version. You can customize the amazon country store for every single embedded product if you want.

    If you want, you can subscribe to the new newsletter of my plugin to be up to date about future changes / updates etc: http://www.wp-amazon-plugin.com/newsletter/
    And I would be happy if you rate it or confirm the compatibility.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Sounds great, I'll just wait patiently for v2 then, rather than try to reinvent the wheel.

    I signed up for your newsletter, any hints as to when ASA2 is likely to hit? Thanks!

    The first beta of ASA2 is expected to be available early 2014.

    Sorry, but no. I could not work on the new version as much as expected. At this moment I can not say when it will be available.
