Hello, I’ve been working with the free version of the Affiliates Manager Plugin for the past few days and adding new features. What I have is pretty much ready to contribute, but I wanted to see what the best way for me to contribute code is. I’m tracking my changes in a local git repository.
Here is what I’m working on:
– Added impression tracking, which can optionally be turned on in the settings
– Impression tracking adds an invisible 1×1 pixel tracker to affiliate creative links
– The impression code sends the .gif data and then tells the browser to close the connection, afterwards the impression is added to the database (to cut down on page loading time where the pixel tracker is located)
– Looking into fixing some styling issues (JQuery dialog close button is messed up and Affiliate Home page tabs overlap) – maybe updating JQuery would be a good idea?
– Would like to add an event log view (impressions, clicks and purchases) with AJAX based filtering
The reason I have chosen your plugin, is because it seems to have a pretty complete feature set with the free version. We would like to utilize your plugin across many sites and don’t want to have to shell out lots of money for a commercial plugin and would like to have the freedom of contributing back to the community. I’d like to make sure that whatever features I contribute, remain free, which I suppose the GPL license protects that. But I’d appreciate your opinion on this.
Hi, I have sent you an email so you can reply back with your code changes. Yes, anything you contribute will remain free and available to everyone.
Just wanted to mention for anyone else reading this thread, that I created an unofficial github fork repository to track the changes I’m making, which hopefully will get merged into the main project.
