Released: 13 Mar 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Re-usable Code  

Hi all, this little bit of code, will allow your members to use the official ebay listing widget on your site...

As seen At my Leicester Talk Forum (first post)

This will automaticly add your affiliate code on the end too, so you can make some money with this.

Theres no products to upload, or templates to edit.. Just follow these steps.

Creating the basic Widget
Go To "Admin CP --> Custom BB Codes --> Add New BB Code"

Enter the following...

Title: eBay Listing
BB Code Tag Name: ebay
Replacement:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You will need to change the "Affiliate-ID-HERE" for your own in TWO places. If you don't have one just leave the code as is, ebay will just ignore it.

You can get one at ebays partner network site


Example: [ebay=classic cars]170449644305[/ebay]
Description: Add an Ebay listing to the forum. Locate the auction of interest you want, and copy the Item Number from the box on the right, and paste between the [ebay] tags, you should also find a search that you want to perform after the auction has expired (end time + 120 days) and put that in as a option. So the syntax is [ebay=search term]item number[/ebay].
Use {option}: Yes
Button Image (Optional): whatever 20x20 image you want, I've put one at the bottom. Please upload the file and then refer to it...
Remove Tag If Empty: Yes
Disable BB Code Within This BB Code: Yes
Disable Smilies Within This BB Code: Yes
Disable Word Wrapping Within This BB Code: Yes



Thats It Folks..
If you wish to thank me, check out my advertisers or considering you will be making some money off this a donation would be nice

Then maybe I will be able to buy the car in the example listing

I will be putting the other ebay widgets up in a moment too...

when the auction has expired the suggested products should be related to whatever you put in... it's most likely takign into account the actual auction as well... so you couldn't put "womans knickers" as the option for a classic car auction....

p.s can no longer test this as i left the ebay programme

I could not create with the code provided and got errors, as shown below:

"
The following BB Code replacement may not be properly formed. All HTML attributes should be enclosed within double quotes.
<div align="center" style="margin: 5px 5px 5px 5px;"> <table class="tborder" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="1" border="0" width="355"> <tr> <td class="thead" style="text-align:center"> <object width="355" height="300"> <param name="movie" value="http://togo.ebay.com/togo/togo.swf?2008013100" /> <param name="flashvars" value="base=http://togo.ebay.com/togo/&lang=en-us&mode=normal&itemid={param}&query={option}&campid=Affiliate-ID-HERE" /> <embed src="http://togo.ebay.com/togo/togo.swf?2008013100" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="355" height="300" flashvars="base=http://togo.ebay.com/togo/&lang=en-us&mode=normal&itemid={param}&query={option}&campid=Affiliate-ID-HERE"> </embed> </object> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
"

What's wrong with it?

Victor

I don't know and eBay kicked me off their affiliate programme so I can't find out , I would suggest you try again as you might not have copied some of the code correctly.

I also get the same error message when entering the code.
However, if I click OK anyway, the the code does insert the eBay widget/block, but it contains the error "Something went awry when I tried to get the listing. Probably a malformed API call."

you don't know of any mod that will auto put id code from the post into this mode?

eg take &item=250951590824 [Ebay=something]auto here[/Ebay]

would save lots of work.
