    Parse Amazon LInk into Affiliate LInk

    Feedburner has a feature where any amazon link in your feed is automatically turned into an affiliate link.

    Has anyone seen php source code for doing this anywhere? I don't want to have to do it from scratch if I don't have it. I imagine you just need to parse out the ASIN from the link and put it into an affiliate link.

    str_replace I imagine would do the trick nicely since the asin is always in the same position.

    Not always, Amazon has changed their URL structure a lot.

    I went with this:

    Code:
    $url_array = explode("/",$url);
    
    foreach ($url_array as $v) {
       if(ereg("^[A-Z0-9]*$", $v)){
    	   $url = "http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/".$v."/ref=nosim/everythingshak06";
       }
    	
    }
