  1. I tried to email several times and respond to your own email but don’t get a response back, here were my questions about the affiliate easel product:

    First Question:
    I need to embed the search bar into a post or a page instead of in a widget on the sidebar, there appears to be no way to do this with the plugin. Only on the sidebar, is there any way to put it manually into a single.php, header.php or other php code that can call upon the “search” bar?

    Most blogs don’t have a wide search bar and may want to put a search on top of the store page instead of in a sidebar.

    Second Question:
    The easel itself shortcode is still a bit cumbersome for the average user to remember without constantly having to cut/paste the shortcode, is it possible to write in a “button” into the WordPress editor so you can just click it (it pop’s up with a ASIN field” you fill in the ASIN field click OK and it auto fills the easel shortcode into the post?

      Hi Justin

      As we have talked through email (now working) the latest version of Affiliate Easel now has a shortcode search-bar. And it’s my goal through continued development to add easier ways to add shortcodes. I don’t have news on this yet but stay tuned.
