Over the past week I have been looking for a way my affiliates can easily display details of my products on their websites/blogs using Wordpress or even Joomla etc.

I stumbled across a Wordpress plugin (http://abdussamad.com/archives/408-Rela ... press.html) which picks up the related products from Opencart and displays them in Wordpress but upon speaking to the author he advised me that he is using a direct database connection as there is no feed available in Opencart.

I believe that should an API or plugin be developed simular to the Amazon Product in a Post (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ama ... st-plugin/) that many more affiliates will use Opencart powered websites and help increase revenue for potential sellers.

Cheers

The PDO Extension can also help you greatly for direct database connections from OpenCart towards other platforms:

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.
