Added affiliates will then be displayed in 2 ways, the traditional list or the more enhanced modern grid view. A sidebar widget to display most recent affiliates is avialable too.

Incomplete product with errors.

Had high hopes for the product but unfortunately it is not ready for prime time.

The good:  Yes, it makes a link directory work nice when it works.

The bad:  Lots of undisclosed basic things that still need to be ironed out.  This really is beta software not a complete product.

1. There is no way to sort how the links appear to the user.  DESPITE the fact that you can order links in the ACP... it has ZERO effect on how the user sees it.  This was not disclosed and cannot be discovered until you purchase.  Had I known this basic fact, would not waste my money on this.  Not having the ability to sort links should be both disclosed and corrected.  Interestingly... you can sort the way the categories appear and making changes in the ACP does change how they appear on the live site.

2. Cannot add one link to multiple categories.  If you have one link that belongs in multiple categories, you need to enter that link more than one time into each category.  That would of course create multiple links on the home listing.

3. Issues with how images/links appear!  If you are using the "descriptions" field, the links do not show up straight, only if there is an equal number per row and even such, does not always work. See below.  Note it is used on a basic IPS site, no custom templates. 



Tried discussing with the developer via messages before leaving review but he was more annoyed and did not seem interested in fixing.  Oh, and of course, the common language errors in the ACP that should have been picked up.
