    KeithB,
    For the latest update, you will just need to change the base index.php file. If your templates are working correctly, then you shoudn't have to worry about changing that file.

    sikk08,
    I fixed the tracking error during the middle of the day today. If you don't have the latest version, 1.1c, then the tracking won't work properly. As I mentioned to KeithB, you will only need to update the main index.php file to fix the tracking error.

    Views will not work unless the "Impression Pixel" hack I mentioned in my previous post is implemented, but clicks are *defiantly* being logged in v1.1c.

    I have noticed a bunch of possible robot/crawler clicks through my site. I added a rel="nofollow" to the go links to see if that stops them. Next step may be to create a robots.txt.

    I've just posted the latest version of McJiffy EASy at http://www.mcjiffy.com/files/easy-1.2.zip

    Thanks a lot to ChuckMcB for helping debug and suggest new ideas. The major feature of the newest release is that it will automatically detect the proper eBay affiliate program (US, UK, etc) based on the user's browser language setting.

    Version 1.2 Changelog
    - fixed page size issue, was showing 1 more listing than total page size

    - added robots.txt so crawlers will not traverse the go links

    - added function to automatically clear cache directory of files older than the cache lifetime

    - added configuration settings for CACHE_KEYWORD_TIME and CACHE_ITEMS_TIME

    - added country selection through setting "country" or automatic detection by EASy

    - added pixel tracking variable to template, $impressionPixel

    Very cool script majohnst, set my first one up yesterday.

    One feature I would like to see is the ability to insert a custom paragraph of intro text for each section.

    I could use some help with this code.

    I have two main issues that I can't figure out; my first issue is that the "Related Searches" and "Similar Topics" doesn't seem to be working. I added my AppID from the eBay developer account but still nothing. Is there something else I need to do?

    The other issue is something that just popped up. I had the site working last night under a sub-directory on one of my other websites just to test it. I liked it so much that I went ahead and applied a new domain to it. Well this morning, it seems like the site loads fine under the new domain but not of the links work now. Is this an issue with my .htaccess? Here is the entire text from my .htaccess:

    RewriteEngine on
    
    # if your installation is not in the root directory, enter the website
    # path to your installation
    RewriteBase /wiishopper
    RewriteRule buy/(.*)$ index.php?action=buy&q=$1&%{QUERY_STRING}
    RewriteRule go/(.*)/(.*)$ index.php?action=go&q=$1&link=$2
    
    
    Code (markup):
    Here is a link to the site:
    http://www.wiishopper.net/

    Thanks for all your help!

    Okay, so I learned a couple things that should have helped me but I am still having the same two issues.

    To solve the issue of the "Related Searches" and "Similar Topics" not displaying, I did add my eBay developer key into my sites/default.php file. This didn't seem to have solve this.

    I also commented out the "RewriteBase" line out of my .htaccess file because I know have a domain pointing to this installation directory but I still get an "Error 404 - Not Found" message for every link on the page.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Once again, here is a link to my site:
    http://www.wiishopper.net/

    Thanks for all your help!

    I haven't started promoting it too hard just yet. A little traffic from just local word of mouth but I'm sure once it gets indexed and I do some marketing it will start to rise.

    What ways are some of you all promoting your new sites?
