Thanks for the interest. :)

Changed to 0.04, almost have the ACP templating done, going to be working on the functions within the next few days. I will have screenshots when I am done with ACP templates.

Demo board is being prepared as well.

Awesome! I love how you are already working on this to get it operational. I will for sure be trying out the beta on a test forum I have to help you out with testing when it becomes available.

First screenshot up,

Please ignore some of the spelling errors, but this is the basic layout. I expect to be adding size constraint system similar to that of the avatar system (with the exact specifications able to be plugged in)

The management screen will have a list of affiliates you can edit on an individual basis.
For submitting affiliates, users have the following feilds:
-Affiliate Name (name of affiliate)
-Affiliate Link (where the affiliate will point to)
-Affiliate Image (Hosted off-site, will the image to appear on the page)
-Affiliate Description (Description of affiliate, will appear on the affiliates.php page)

I believe I will also be adding a default expiry in the acp options, where admins can specify if/when an affiliate is expired and has to be re approved. Admins will have the option to turn this off by setting the value to 0. On the management page, the edit affiliate function will allow one to set the affiliate not to expire ever.

Excellent, just what i've been looking for, for my users to put up there business details.

I'm guessing this will put 1 page on my forum where all the affiliates are listed?

Also, will the fields be customisable, like the custom profile fields?

Many Thanks

The mod will have an affiliates.php page which you can view all the affiliates, and I am creating a new template variable that you can add to any part of the template to create horizonal or vertical affiliates (they will display 5 random, with a show all affiliates button pointing to the affiliates.php page)

So far I have these fields customizable by the submitter:
-Affiliate Name (name of affiliate)
-Affiliate Link (where the affiliate will point to)
-Affiliate Image (Hosted off-site, will the image to appear on the page)
-Affiliate Description (Description of affiliate, will appear on the affiliates.php page)

But, I am also implementing an affiliate expiration, so they will have to be re approved. The time in days can be customized in the acp, or can be turned off completely. There will also be an admin customizable Rules of Submission that will be displayed when a user submits an affiliate.
