    Hi,

    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.

    Reviews page example: (only useful for UK customers) Reviews Page
    Page without reviews: (just using shortcode – useful for UK, Canada and US) No Review

    on another note, I’d like to say how pleased I am to see the Rich Snippets working for my site in Google 🙂

    Hi Simon,

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

    Hi Hesham,

    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?

    Regards

    Simon,

    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.

    hmm,

    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?

    Kind Regards

    Hi Simon,

    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.
