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

Hello,

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.

If this sounds like what you want, please feel free to get in touch via my profile page.

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.

That particular element is called the Omnibox, you could install Chromium instead: http://www.chromium.org/Home

I’m not sure if this has been covered (this thread is huge), but I asked about a sales reversal 4 weeks ago, and support said “Envato has not received the money for the item.” So, let assume they paid with Paypal, Envato released the item before the payment was received, IE: a payment from a unconfirmed PayPal account, rather than it being disputed by Paypal and reversed.

Is this a flaw in the system that unconfirmed payments are being treated as confirmed ones?
