I have international visitors to my site, some of which I refer to Amazon.com and some I send to Amazon.co.uk depending on their geographic location.
For this I use a plugin called “Custom Content by Country (from iControlWP)” which works perfectly in the content of the page
here is an example:
[CBC show=”y” country=”uk”]Amazon[/CBC][CBC show=”y” country=”ca”]Amazon[/CBC][CBC show=”n” country=”uk, ca”]Amazon[/CBC]
(The “Amazon” text would link to http://www.amazon.co.uk, http://www.amazon.ca or http://www.amazon.com)
As much as I love the WordPress reviews plugin, I’m unable to make use of it on my site as often as I would like without sacrificing potential affiliate commissions by not being able to direct the visitors as I would with the shortcode above.
To resolve this problem, I would need to be able to do the following:
1. Make the review image (featured image) have the shortcode link
2. Make the price input field accept a shortcode link or have multiple currency options so I can display £’s or $’s
3. Make the “More Details” button accept a shortcode
Is this at all possible? as without this functionality, the reviews plugin is limited to a singular country.
on another note, I’d like to say how pleased I am to see the Rich Snippets working for my site in Google 🙂

This will require some custom coding and changes to the plugin, which is not in the scoop of our support.

I appreciate that, but I’m wondering if maybe you might consider the possibility of introducing some form of geo-specific URL option in future updates?

Of course I am open to any good and useful feature ideas, I usually take notes of such threads and keep it on my feature to do list.
The thing is I can not promise any new features to be added to the WP Reviews plugin, I am focusing more on the WP Rich Snippets plugin, which will get all new features.

Maybe I need to switch from the WP Reviews and start using Rich Snippets instead, it appears from the Demo’s that they both provide a similar function. Is there a significant difference between the two plugins?

I do actually recommend switching to the WP Rich Snippets plugin, especially if you are still in the early stages.
Probably the most important differences is that WP Rich Snippets plugin:
– Support several types of markups.
– Has more functionality towards developers.
– Has more add-ons.
– Will get more development in the future.
This page has a comparison table for all three main plugins we have, it will probably make it more clear.
