I need an expert programmer with experience in creating wordpress plugins.
Currently I am having to manually convert a lot of links to Affiliate Links through Affiliate Window.
However, I can see that the affiliate links follow a given pattern.
The major difference in the links is the difference in the merchant.
Each merchant (retailer) has a number assigned to them.
Here is an example of two affiliate link urls.
is converted to:
And http://www.virginiahayward.com/extravagance-hamper/ is converted to:
Aside from the conversion of characters, the difference is in awinmid=
Each merchant (website) has an id associated with it.
What I want is a wordpress plugin, which would automatically convert any affiliate link, using the above pattern.
This would work like the Amazon Localizer plugin does for amazon.
The plugin would need to have options for me to add new merchants from the wordpress interface.
So, for example, all I would need to do to automatically convert all of the www.spabreaks.com links into affiliate links, would be to enter www.spabreaks.com and it's associated merchant id, awinmid (which for spabreaks.com would be 3489)
There should also be an option to add my unique affiliate id, awinaffid (which for me would be 103590). This will allow others to be able to use the plugin.
