The Affiliates plugins have been updated with a few interesting features. Besides making sure that all works smoothly with the currently latest WordPress 3.8, there are a few important and useful additions. The latest versions 2.5.0 of the Affiliates, Affiliates Pro and Affiliates Enterprise plugins now feature:
- Commission totals are shown for each affiliate in the Affiliates > Manage Affiliates section.
- A new dashboard widget has been added, that shows the total accumulated amounts for all affiliates by referral status. The widget includes the complete referral history by default and is also capable of displaying the summarized totals for a specific number of days back to present.
- A new shortcode
[affiliates_earnings]has been added that lists the monthly earnings for affiliates. This is a useful addition that allows affiliates to see how their performance has evolved. In newly generated affiliate areas (under Affiliates > Options), this shortcode is now included automatically. Existing affiliate areas can be updated by including the shortcode manually.
