Tracking Booking Affiliates
Booking affiliates can be tracked by point point to a URL "/welcome/<affiliateid>". (on Joomla this would typically be /directory/welcome/<affiliateId>).
This will track the affiliate in both session and cookies then 301 redirect to the home page. This should mean that inbound links of this kind are good for SEO.
AA Directions on Caravan Sitefinder
We have integrated AA directions and mapping into www.caravansitefinder.co.uk to allow step-by-step directions to be shown on the location maps for caravan parks.
Example: Golden Sands Park Location Map
Also in this update:
- Sub-Layouts - In listing pages, would it be nice to highlight some of the search results before the main body of results? This is now possible through sub-layouts.
- New Zend Framework 1.7.4 - As always, we are keeping up to date with the latest version of the Zend Framework.
