Manual Install Instructions for SMF

Description:

Description:

This mod provides an Amazon DVD button in your posting template. It converts selected text into an affiliate link that searches for that text in Amazon's DVD (Movies & TV) store. 

Amazon allows and encourages these links that draw traffic to its site. The mod is designed to make it easy for your forum members to make clickable links in their posts when they reference the name of a movie or DVD.

If you are in Amazon's affiliate program, your affiliate code can be automatically embedded in the link, so that you get credit for any resulting purchases.

How it's used:

When creating or modifying a post, your forum members can select text in that post and click on the Amazon DVD. The selected text will become a clickable link in the post. When visitors to your forum click on that link, a new browser page will open with the Amazon DVD search page results for that string.

The mod also provides an easy way for your forum moderators to modifying existing posts to convert text to Amazon links.

After running the automatic install, copy the included amazondvd.gif to your Themes/Default/Images/BBC folder. And, if you are part of Amazon's affiliate program, edit Subs.php in your Sources folder and replace the string "affiliate-id" with your affiliate ID assigned by Amazon.
