AmazonFeed 2.1 Released

 –  7 Comments »

I have finally released AmazonFeed v. 2.1. While not a major release, it updates the code to be compatible with WordPress 3.1.1 and fixes a few minor bugs. One bug for example would prevent your custom Amazon tags from being saved in certain situations. This has now been fixed. Hope you enjoy the plugin. If you have questions or comments, feel free to leave them in the comments associated with this post.

    Excellent plugin. During my review, I found a small bug. If you want this plugin to work on a Windows server running IIS, you will need to change the “amazonfeed.php” file as follows:

    Replace the following line:
    $amazonFeedObj->urlPath = get_option(‘siteurl’) . str_replace(ABSPATH, “/”, $amazonFeedObj->basePath);

    with this:
    /* Modification to work on Windows and IIS */
    $amazonFeedObj->urlPath = get_option(‘siteurl’) . str_replace(substr(ABSPATH, 0, strlen(ABSPATH) – 1), “”, $amazonFeedObj->basePath);

    Keep up the good work 🙂

    Thanks for the feedback David. That’s very helpful. I wonder if there’d be a simple way to test whether it’s on Apache or IIS and use the right option accordingly.

    It should work on linux as well…

    Oops. I hit submit too soon. The logic simply strips all but the trailing slash regardless of whether the slash is forward or back.

    It would have been nice if you would let everyone know that you are going half & half on the money!! Thanks for the great plug, but I didn’t see anywhere a note about you sharing revenue without our consent.

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    Please disregard my last comment
    The plug does have an option to tip author or not. It’s great work and very handy.

    THANK YOU MUCH for making this plug.
    Great work.
