How did you get the name email and website in the leave a comment section?
Since the affiliate window API has been deprecated, how do you use it within your site? I am connected to lots of retailers on this platform, but seems it cannot be used with content egg??

Can you not create a new video tutorial using the ReHub Theme with the Child Theme Rewise. I’m in the process of creating an affiliate website with that theme but finding it so difficult.
I wouldn’t recommend you use Re:Hub anymore – as you say it’s too difficult.
Hi Alex, I’m looking at creating a (wordpress) price comparison website for 2-3 different products only. I’ve watched this video from 2017 which had features consistent with what I was after (I’m looking at affiliate links to retailers via skimlinks/viglink and also separately Amazon and eBay). Contentegg pro seems to fit the bill from what I’ve seen but I’ve seen your content about the difficulty obtaining API keys for Amazon these days. I’m not sure what would be the best way to combine prices from Amazon and other retailers in one page now. Any insight would be amazing! Thanks 🙂
Hi – i’ve not done any work on one of these kind of sites for a while so I can’t really help. It is harder to get keys, but it’s still achievable. Good luck with your site.
Would be great to see an updated version of this video, if you have the time. Especially any clever techniques to work around the extra scrutiny affiliates may have today than in 2017
