Building a WooCommerce Store Using Affiliate Feeds

A couple of weeks ago I spoke with BobWP on his WP eCommerce Show. You can find that talk here https://wpecommerceshow.com/building-a-woocommerce-store-using-affiliate-feeds-with-eric-busch/

Here are a few of the topics we discussed:

  1. What is Datafeedr and how did it come to be?
  2. Is it viable to start up an online store with just affiliate products?
  3. For new site owners, how do you get accepted by these affiliate networks with nothing selling on your site?
  4. Are there ever instances where store owners will mix affiliate products in with their own products?
  5. Is there such as thing as having too many affiliate products in your store?

New “Media Library Filter” plugin released today

When your WordPress site starts to grow and you have lots of images in your library from Posts, Pages, Products and other WordPress content types, filtering the the media in your library becomes very difficult.

I thought for sure there would be a plugin available that would enable filtering of the media in my Media Library… but there wasn’t much. What I did find was a post on StackExchange from 2013 with a quick solution. So I spent a couple of days and put together the Media Library Filter plugin.

The Media Library Filter plugin allows you to filter the media in your library by taxonomy or term.

A taxonomy would be the type of category. For example some taxonomies might be Blog Categories, Product Categories, Post Tags, etc.

A term would be the name of an item in the category. For example the taxonomy Product Categories might contain the terms “Rock Climbing Shoes” and “Rock Climbing Helmets”.

If you have a suggestion or way to improve, please let us know.

Download the plugin

Enjoy!
