About apws.pl

The apws.pl Perl-based (Linux) affiliate script enables you to quickly and easily add AllPosters.com products to your website or create a website entirely of AllPosters.com products.

Complete customization is supported through templates and a configuration file. You can choose to display all categories, or a specific category (e.g.: Animals and its subcategories) or an arbitrary unrelated set of categories (e.g.: Movies, Sports, People), and any unwanted categories can be hidden.

Products can be embedded into existing webpages by using SSI (server-side-include) or <script> tags or PHP.

Products can be selected by you or by the user by various search criteria, such as: keywords, price range, height range, width range.

You can customize the products format, such as: number of rows/columns, number of products per page, maxumum number of pages, display/hide price, display/hide frame/unframed/mounted links.

Multi-languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian) are supported along with multi-currencies (including USD$, CAD$, Pound, Yen, and more).

No programming knowledge required, other than familiarity with HTML for optional template customization.

In contrast to our older allposters.pl affiliate script that generates static HTML webpages, the apws.pl affiliate script dynamically generates output "on-the-fly"; template and data changes are reflected online immediately, no need to "rebuild" pages. The apws.pl affiliate script offers more features and is dynamic (no building of pages). It is "plug-and-play". Products can be online on your website within minutes.

System Requirements

The apws.pl affiliate script is a perl script that you install on your linux/unix web server. The script is not a Windows program and is not intended for novice users.

To be able to use the apws.pl affiliate script, the following system requirements must be met:

  • linux/unix web server with cgi-bin enabled (Windows NT servers are not supported);

  • 4 MB free disk space on web server;

  • mod_rewrite (.htaccess) enabled;

  • AllPosters.com affiliate ID (must sign-up through our affiliate link and be a sub-affiliate of our AllPosters.com account).
