I don’t want to be THAT guy, and I’m sure everyone here has heard this a million times, but here goes: This is what is expected when you are the product, if you pay for the service like ADN then this stuff will never happen.
I think a lot of people misunderstood ADN at the very beginning, they thought it was just a Twitter clone without ads, but in fact it can b the infrastructure behind any social network.
Awesome, awesome news. It’s good that you’re getting on top of these things
Bitbucket have unlimited free private repos, however there is a clause that you need to be respectful and responsible in terms of sizes. IE: Not using it for you MP3 collection is an example they use on the site.
As long as you use it for it’s intended purposes (IE: code) then you won’t encounter any issues.
I use Git. I have a Micro Plan with Github ($7) and a free account with Bitbucket.
I use Github for my own private repos because I prefer the issue tracking, wikis etc. However, I use Bitbucket for my commercial apps because it’s quicker and easier (don’t need issues etc), and not to mention free.
Yeah, so going back to my original question in my first post, it’s #1 you are after, with a predefined list. You kind of went off at a tangent implying you wanted it to automatically gather the keywords and the URLs.
This free WordPress plugin will do exactly what you are after: http://wordpress.org/plugins/keyword-replace/screenshots/
I’m not too keen. Personally I don’t like the transition time like when it’s locked and you turn it on, that fade in is too slow and I double tap because I don’t think it’s responding.
For me, it’s a step backwards for UX, it feels clumsy and slow, it seems too much energy was spent on the design rather than actual functionality and real life usage.
Just my 2 cents
Double post for some strange reason…
In that case, my plugin would not be suited as it required there to already be URLs in the content.
The problem here is that you want something that’s going to automatically pick up product names, but you need to ask yourself how can it do it? Will there be a predefined list? Who will manage this list? Where will it come from? OR Will it search for each word? How will it know to group all the terms?
I think what you are after isn’t doable in a real production environment, because it will either require a long list of predefined product names and URLs, or it will require some serious overhead to split into words then lookup each word, then try different groups of words to form a product (EG: In “This is my canon 10-22mm lens” it will have to break up into words, then try different boundaries, such as “My Canon”, “My canon 10-22mm” “Canon 10-22mm” etc etc).
So, just to confirm what you are after, are you wanting:
1) A system where you enter the keyword and URL, and then it replaces it when found in the content, title, excerpt
2) You already enter the Amazon URLs into your content, and you want to just add you associate referral ID to the URL?
Reason I ask, is that I have an item which is for the Envato marketplaces and automatically adds the referral URL when it finds an Envato Marketplace URL, and if a referral already exists it removes it and adds your own.
Now, if you entered all URLS on your site in this format “http://www.amazon.com/dp/0812972155/” then I will be able to do some modifications to adjust it to work with Amazon links to add your referral.

After smoking for around ~12 years, I FINALLY gave up by using a mixture of patches and lozenges. I had tried everything, from the Alan Carr book, to gum, patches, inhalator, mist spray, and every brand of the above. Also tried the cold turkey route, but nothing sticked.
What worked for me is the patches, and then having a lozenge when you feel you need a top up. Normally they advise against mixing the two products, but this was done on suggestion of a doctor, so I suggest you go for a visit anyway before trying anything.
I guess in the end, everyone is different so what worked for some, won’t work for others – it’s all down to your own body and how it handles withdrawals. One friend woke up one day and never smoked again without help of anything, and he did it with such ease, whilst others still smoke now after trying anything.
It also depends on what your goals are, if it’s money then set yourself a goal like “If I quite for X months, I will buy myself XXXXXX” where it would equal the amount of money you spent. Or if it’s health wise, start running more and you’ll feel the benefits within a few weeks of not smoking, then once your on a roll, you won’t want to go back.
One more thing, I’ve had a couple of relapses. Since quitting, there’s been 2 occasions where I’ve smoked a cigarette. My advice would be that don’t feel bad about these blips, they happen, don’t beat yourself up about it and just forget and continue with not smoking. The worst thing you can do is to start up again after you’ve had a small relapse.
