Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This extension allows users to enter their eBay username, and will then have a link in postbit that will show all the users current eBay Auctions.

Does require a couple of template edits, and edit of a file (not native to vB).

Based off of the idea and hack from 3.0.x which can be seen: here.


1.0.1 Updated XML to parse two templates, saving two queries (thanks to Zachariah).

1.0.0 Initial Release


*To Update*
Reupload all files, Re-import product, making sure to allow overwrite.
-- Make sure you replace fieldx with your field# in the XML before updating.

I wanted this to show up in the Member's list so I added this to the memberlist_resultbit template. I haven't done this long so if there is a better way please let me know.

Creed, I'll be keeping an eye out for the affiliate addition. That will be great.

I've been using an Amazon.com hack on my site that has upped sales: any time someone posts an Amazon link, it automatically adds my affiliate id.

Get your hack going for eBay in the same way, and that will be WAY cool!

I agree that adding the affiliate stuff would elevate this cool hack quite a bit. One other thought occurs to me. How to ensure that the user is entering their own eBay ID? With no authentication, I can see the potential for abuse.

Edit: So I got this working and it's great, only when I go to the member's auctions I just see random auctions. Secondly, I could not get this to work by entering the eBay ID into the profile via the admincp, only via the usercp (says that the user did not specify a member ID).

It was created using winzip 9, which has new compression I'll reup it using winrar to zip it.

Unless the user currently has auctions running, thats generally what is displayed. Usually an add, etc. That is customizable using the ebay snipet.

when an auction is just listed, it doesn't always show up in the 'users' list until some time after... Remember, eBay has HUGE data farms so it will take a bit of time for one server to update them all.. If it isn't there after a few hours, then it could be a problem.

As the the affiliate thing, just to re-iterate, if you have a Commision Junction account, when you generate snippet, simply add your PID to the options before you render the code... It'll automatically embed your eBay affiliate code to the snippet code... Add the snippet code to your template as per instructions and Bob's your uncle.

(Oh, and yes, depending on how you configure the snippet, if the member isn't currently running an auction, it'll display random auctions, auctions from a defined catagory, or just a blank box with an ebay ad in it... If you don't like what it looks like, rebuild your snippet)

I figured out the random eBay thing and changed my snippet to show nothing if there are no auctions, however there is still a problem. When clicking the link to view someone's eBay auctions, I am told "This member has not given their Ebay ID" even though I had entered a valid ID (with auctions running) into the user's account. Is this also due to the delay mentioned above?

Only "This member has not given their Ebay ID" and that's it.

The installation and/or snippet must have been generated wrong then...

It is working for me...

Here is an example of a member who has active auctions:
http://www.mumsonline.net/forums/mem...ns&userid=1767

And one that doesn't have any active auctions, thus its displaying most watched items from the 'baby' catagory from ebay.co.uk:
http://www.mumsonline.net/forums/mem...ons&userid=578


Here is my snippet code if it helps you debug your issues... (feel free to use it yourself, it has my affiliate code in it! )

EDIT:
there is spaces rendering in the above snippet code that are not in the orginal code... Quote this message to get the snippet code as it appears in my ebay_member template
