I am getting closer to a first release and am doing some testing of the completed plugin here on this site. The plugin now has its own landing page, check it out here: e107 affiliate plugin.
Here’s hoping this is the first step towards making e107 a credible CMS choice for affiliate marketers out there on the net. Given that a lot of these plugins for WordPress and Joomla are commercial, a good free one could actually help “sell” the CMS. It is a long way off having the “all-in-one” functionality that I am aiming for but it is something I will be working at slowly.
Depending on the progress of e107 0.8 I may accelerate the effort but for now it will be focused on activities that will support my own sites. The reality is that e107 needs to get its SEO act together for the next release if it is to attract the fussy search engine obsessed community of affiliates. I don’t think this is impossible though!
In the mean time I look forward to gathering ideas and feedback from anyone out there.
