JiuJitsuProGear Affiliate Plugin for Windows Live Writer

I blog a lot about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  I like to add to my blogs items from JiuJitsuProGear.com.  It was a pain having to create affiliate link using their nebular look up page.  So I created a Windows Live Plugin that does it for you.  It downloads the items from JiuJitsuProGear.com and cleans them up.  You can sort and filter the items to find the one you want.  It even saves your affiliate id for you.  The first time it loads it does take some time to download the items and create the appropriate files.  You must have read/Write privileges to your Windows Live Writer plug-in directory.

If you like my plug-in please Donate $1 to help me keep creating cool stuff like that. Donate to www.whatifoundout.com

If you need help or have feed back I will respond to this post.

To Install:

  1. Download and unzip the plug-in into your Windows Live Writer Plugin file.
  2. Open Windows Live Writer and try it.  It will take a minute to load the first time.

Adding Amazon’s Quick Linker Widget to WordPress

Amazon provides a Amazon Widget called Quick Linker. This widget can be used to easily add a affiliate link from your blog post back to a product on Amazon. For example here is one for WordPress for Dummies.  If you already have a Amazon Affliate account it is just a matter of logging in and getting the script it generates for you. But where do you paste it? I couldn’t find anything that would tell me. I finally decide to paste it in the header.php file before the body tag. So far it seems to be working correctly.  I did notice that when I edited a post with tags in it for the Quick Linker that the asin attribute was removed from the anchor tags.  I don’t know why that is.  I just put it back in and tried not to edit it again.  If anyone knows of a better way to do this please let me know.
