Looking to fund Affiliate / Rewards Points Module

Loïc,

I’m happy to work with anyone who wants to implement a reward system, but as far as my own work goes, I don’t want to lose focus at the moment.  I want to implement the features required for a typical affiliate programme, and get that release out of the door so people can make use of it.

Right now I’m really just tying up loose ends for 1.0.0.  There are a few small features that I would like to put in before releasing a feature complete beta.  That means that any large changes would really have to go on a post-1.0 branch (which I could create if someone wanted to contribute something).

I have just uploaded Affiliates for All 0.2.0, which is the first beta release.  The full release announcement is at:

http://www.affiliatesforall.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t;=8

I have also created a website for AfA:

http://www.affiliatesforall.org/

Please let me know how you get on.  I suggest we move the discussion to the forums on the new AfA site, as we’re soon going to outgrow this thread!

Just wanted to let you know, I’ve released the first draft of the Affiliates for All manual.  The full details are at http://tinyurl.com/4pjwlw .

I’m now turning my focus back to code, so hopefully a new release won’t be too far away…

Hi guys,

One of our co-developers (my brother that is) has just finished developing a - after my opinion - really great Affiliate-system for Magento.

I started a new thread about this in the Suggestion-forum as we would love to get some of you people to test it out:

Thanks!

I’ve just uploaded the first stable version of Affiliates for All.  The full release announcement is at http://tinyurl.com/3oy4ot .  This is what you’ve been waiting for, please let me know how you get on!

aFFi,

I registered as an affiliate on your system and it looked good, well done and good luck with it.

Paul,

It sounds as though PHP has been built without xmlrpc support.

PHP has an xmlrpc module which is built along with PHP itself.  There are also various third party libraries that provide xmlrpc.  To avoid bloating AfA with lots of third party code, I went with the built in module.  Unfortunately this now seems to have bitten us because, assuming you’re using a shared host, you can’t easily add a module to PHP itself.

Has anyone else tried to install AfA on a shared host, and hit this problem?  If it’s a widespread issue, I will bundle a third party xmlrpc solution with a future release, avoiding the problem.

Thanks,
Pete

Paul,

If you like, I could host your Affiliates for All installation on my own server.

I was always intending to offer this service, but when I raised the possibility a while ago, everyone wanted to host AfA themselves.  As a result, I never set anything like this up.  It would be a way round the problems you are having with your host, though.  If you would be interested in taking that route, please let me know.

(Of course, while AfA itself is free, there would have to be a small charge for hosting it.)

Paul,

Thank you for the suggestions, which I agree are worthwhile.  By the way, you’re the first person to contribute code, so this is actually a big moment for Affiliates for All!

How do you want to get the changes to me?  If I go by the description you’ve posted, I might not do quite what you expect, and then you’ll have to rework your skin when you want to update the core of Affiliates for All.  Here are some ideas:

- If you are happy learning to use Bazaar, you could check out the latest trunk, make your changes, and then send a changeset to me.  There is a link to Bazaar on the Affiliates for All download page.  This would be the easiest option for me, but probably the hardest for you. grin

- You could make your changes, and then send me a diff.

- You could make your changes and then send me a zip containing your modified version of AfA.

Please let me know what you think, would any of these options work for you?

Pete

Hi Rene,

Seems to be working now—perhaps it was a temporary fault at tinyurl?

Unfortunately the URL of the release announcement contains an ampersand, and the software that runs the Magento Forum seems to remove those from posts.  That means I can’t post a direct link.  However, if you start at http://affiliatesforall.org and click Community, then Announcements, you will see a link to the release announcement.

Hi Blizzard,

It’s still working for me.  What is the exact URL you tried to open, and what error message did you get?

Thanks,
Pete
