DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Example

An admin will check this page once in a while, and you'll get a tracking ID, for example:

devtome-unthinkingbit-20

and a link using that tag is: Amazon - Nutrigold - Vitamin D3 - 5,000 IU.

The associate link format is amazon category link, Amazon Standard Item Number (ASIN), ”/?tag=”, tracking ID, and link text. You can get the category link and ASIN by finding the product on Amazon, then stripping out everything after the ASIN. In the above Vitamin D example, the category link is http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/, the ASIN is B004N8TTBQ, the tracking ID is devtome-unthinkingbit-20, and the link text is “Amazon - Nutrigold - Vitamin D3 - 5,000 IU”.

For books the ASIN is the same as the 10 digit International Standard Book Number (ISBN). For example, for the Great Gatsby, the ASIN (0743273567) is in the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0743273567

and it is also listed on the page: ISBN-10: 0743273567

for unthinkingbit, the wiki format link would be: Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald

To link to another book, paste the 10 digit ISBN of the other book into the ISBN part of the link address, replace unthinkingbit with your devtome name, and change the link text.

Some examples

Basic url format looks like this: www. amazon.com/dp/0446310786/?tag=devtome-wiser-20

I am linking to the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

There are two parts to this url which are interchangeable based on the product and the user. These parts are indicated in bold.

The ten digit number is the book ISBN or ASIN number. It is a ten digit number found in the product details section.

The part between “devtome-” and ”-20” is your Devtome username. Swap out your name for “wiser” and you will get credit if anyone buys this book through the link.

For example, Devtome writer backfox's url linking to the same book looks like this: www. amazon.com/dp/0446310786/?tag=devtome-blackfox-20

Blackfox linking to The Hobbit will have a url that looks like this: www. amazon.com/dp/0544174224/?tag=devtome-blackfox-20

  • note: I have inserted a space between the www. and the rest of the urls in this example to disable the automatic hyperlinking feature. Please eliminate that space in your actual urls.
