Amazon Link

October 6th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

This plugin enables you to put Amazon product links, images and bespoke templates into your site’s Pages, Posts, Widgets and Templates.

Description

This plugin is used to quickly add Amazon products links to your WordPress posts and pages. The product links can be simple text links, thumbnail images, full-size images, complex templates or full-blown Amazon flash widgets.

The product links that can be for any of the Amazon domains (UK, US, Canada, China, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, India and Japan).

The content of the product links can be statically entered by the Author (when the link is created), or dynamically refreshed when displayed using data from the Amazon site that is most appropriate for the nationality of the reader.

The product links to be displayed can be specified when the link is created, using the built in Amazon search widget, or dynamically generated by searching the content of the site.

All product links will contain the Amazon affiliate ID of the site author and will be the relevant one for that locale. This allows you to collect commission on any products purchased through the links.

Key features

  • Search Tool to assist authors to create links in posts and pages
  • Simple [amazon] shortcode used to generate product links
  • Localisation of all links based on the nationality of the reader
  • Amazon Product Details Cache to ensure pages load quickly
  • Optional multinational popup to allow the reader to choose which Amazon site to visit
  • Global options to update the behaviour of all the links on your site
  • Ability to locally override the global options using the shortcode content
  • Affiliate Tracking IDs for each WordPress user or by user specified ‘Channels’.
  • Flexible template facility to enable the author to quickly create complex content quickly and consistently
  • Includes built in templates for the major Amazon widgets (Carousel, My Favourites, etc.).
  • Facility to extend and modify the functionality of the plugin using WordPress filters

Quick Start

To quickly add a simple text link add the following lines into an entry (page, post or text widget): [amazon asin=<ASIN Number>&text=<link text>]

Where ASIN Number is the unique amazon number used to identify products e.g. “1405235675″. The Link Text is simply what you want to be shown for the link, e.g. “Mr. Good”.

To utilise one of the templates simply specify the template option with the name of the template to use. For example: [amazon asin=<ASIN Number>&title=<link text>&thumb=<image url>&template=thumbnail].

To take full advantage of the plugin features it is recommended that you have an Amazon Web Services account, and enter the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key in the Amazon Link Settings page. Once your AWS account settings are entered the plugin can be configured to dynamically fill in the templates with live information from the appropriate Amazon site. Alternatively you can use the Amazon Search tool on the Page/Post edit screen to find Amazon products and let the plugin pre-fill the Amazon Link shortcode with all the details needed to create the appropriate template.

To generate a list of products relevant to the content of your site use the ‘cat’ option, to specify where the plugin should search for Amazon product links. This option can be either ‘local’ to search the current page content or a list of category ids to search specific sections of your site. For example I use this feature to provide friends and family some ideas for presents. This feature also needs access to the Amazon Web Service API and uses the ‘CartSimilarities’ feature to generate the list of items.

This is created by either putting the line amazon_recommends(<Category>,<Number of Posts>) in your template. Or putting the line [amazon cat=<Category>&last=<Number of Posts>] within a post or page. Where ‘Category’ is a list of category ids to search within (e.g. as expected by the ‘cat’ argument of query_posts function. The ‘last’ parameter is the number of posts to search through.

    3. Update the settings (at the very least enter the default Affiliate Tags)

    5. If you wish to use link localisation then you need to install the ip2nation database using the option in the Amazon Link Settings page.
    6. If you would like to take advantage of the Amazon Link Product caching then you will need to enable this on the Amazon Link Settings page.
    7. Insert links and wishlists into your content using the [amazon] tag as described above, or using the Amazon Link box on the Page/Post edit pages.

    Upgrading

    Generally upgrading should happen smoothly, however for major releases (e.g. 3.0 to 3.1) please read the Upgrade Guide.

      Hi Paul.

      I am having a problem getting My products links to work. I would like to know what information I
      have to put in for the Channel….is it my “websit/blog”, or is it a special Amazon affiliate #. Also, do we put an affiliate ID in next to our country (below where we enter the Channel). A bit confused.

      Thanks so much, Terry

      Hi, firstly thanks for producing a brilliant plugin. I had a look at all of the plugins for Amazon linking and yours was by far the easiest and in my opinion the best available. I have been checking stats for my site http://www.6300phones.com and the majority of my readers come from India. Would it be possible to add support for the Indian Amazon Associates site? https://affiliate-program.amazon.in/

      Thanks for your help and keep up the good work. Drew.

    3. October 15th, 2013 at 14:06 | #3

      @Drew Puttick
      Hi Drew,

      The latest version of the plugin 3.1.0, should provide support for India, please check it out and let me know if I have missed anything.

      Cheers,

      Paul

    4. October 15th, 2013 at 14:09 | #4

      @Drew Puttick
      Sorry don’t worry about the request. Amazon India only allow residents to participate and I don’t plan on moving there anytime soon. Cheers. Drew.

      This plugin is pretty much exactly what I’ve been looking for.

      In a multi-user setting, is there any way for each author to enter their own Amazon Associate ID?

    6. November 8th, 2013 at 20:44 | #6

      @Jason

      Hi,

      Yes, there is an option to enable User Affiliate IDs – they can enter them on the profile page. Then all posts authored by them will user those IDs.

      Cheers,

      Paul

      I am new at all of this. Do you have a tutorial for setting everything up? thanks, Laurie

      Hi Paul,
      Love the plugin but have a couple of issues … firstly I use multinational template with ipnation installed. In admin, when i hover over the links and flag /price links, they show and go to the correct amazon country site, but when i go to the page where the amazon link is inserted, only the top title with drop down flags go to the right locale, the others all go to .co.uk search which isn’t what i want! I tried unticking the localise and global defaults to no effect, please advise!

      Also in In Amazon Links Extras section receive the following errors.

      Warning: fopen() [function.fopen]: Filename cannot be empty in /public_html/news/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3677

      Warning: fread() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /public_html/news/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3680

      Warning: fclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in public_html/news/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3683

      Please advise
      Thanks
      Tracey

      @Laaurie Pedelaborde

      To get all the Amazon API side of things sorted out have a look at the getting started guide here: http://www.houseindorset.co.uk/plugins/amazon-link/getting-started/.

      Once you’ve done that, you can start creating links with up to date Amazon data.

      Hope that helps,

      Paul

      @Tracey
      Hi,

      Hmm, that doesn’t sound right any chance of a link to your site so I can see what is going wrong?

      Paul

      I have walked through all the settings step including setting up a AWS account.

      But when I try a basic product text link example nothing appears.

      Do you have a troubleshooting FAQ link.

    12. November 20th, 2013 at 19:11 | #12

      @Harvey

      Hi,

      It should just work.

      Either use the Amazon Link tool on the Post Edit page to search for and insert short codes into your post or manually put them in your post `[amazon asin=B00BGW88MI&template=thumb]`.

      The FAQ is located at FAQ it is also duplicated in the WordPress plugin repository.

      Hope that helps!

      Hey Paul,

      I’ve used this plugin for a while and I’m loving it.

      However, recently something seems to be wrong with it. Whenever I insert the shortcode in a post, it will result in a blank page. Here’s an example: http://www.indieisnotagenre.com/test/ (Password: 1234).

      I’m sure it’s your plugin as I’ve already eliminated everything else.

      Cheers,
      Deborah

      @debjay

      Hi, sorry about that must have been the recent upgrade, is it possible to turn on logging to see if there are any warnings or errors.

      In wp_config.php:
      Find WP_DEBUG and set it to true:

      define('WP_DEBUG', true);

      Paul

    15. November 25th, 2013 at 17:30 | #15

      Debug mode is turned on. What do I do now? :)

      Hi

      Have been using the plugin for a few months and whilst looking at a recent post I made on my mobile i noted that when clicking the link to an amazon product I was taken to the .com site instead of the .co.uk site and the url was showing as http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/ref=is_null

      I have the localisation on.

      Any thoughts?

      Thanks

      Hi,

      I’ve been having trouble putting Amazon MP3 widgets on my pages.

      I fill out all the information that the pluggin requires too generate the code but nothing appears on the site.

      In the templates section of Amazon links do I have to edit the template and put in the code that Amazon generates for the widget?

      Sorry if I don’t make much sense, I’m pretty new to this.

      Thanks for your time!

    18. November 29th, 2013 at 11:16 | #18

      Thanks for this awesome plugin. I just installed the plugin along with Amazon Link Extra – Images. I was using 30 wishlist template shortcodes with different ASINs from Amazon.com in a post.

      By refreshing the website several times, I noticed that some of the Amazon items didn’t show (class al_found0) randomly.

    19. November 29th, 2013 at 21:05 | #19

      @progku
      Hi,

      If your site makes too many requests to Amazon some of the requests get rejected by Amazon (hence the not_founds), try turning on the Amazon Product Cache so it saves the data locally.

      Paul

    20. November 29th, 2013 at 21:06 | #20

      @Martin
      Hi,

      Could be your browser blocking the MP3 Widget?

      Could be the widget is not supported in your locale?

      I’ll look into it a bit further tomorrow…

      Paul

    21. November 29th, 2013 at 21:07 | #21

      @Rob
      Hi Rob,

      Could you give me link to your site/page so I can see what the plugin is doing.

      Paul

    22. November 29th, 2013 at 21:08 | #22

      @debjay
      Hi,

      I sent you an email, did you get it?

      Paul

    23. November 30th, 2013 at 03:17 | #23

      @Paul
      Thanks Paul. It works very well now after I refreshed it few times.

      BTW, can you suggest how long should I set the Cache Data Age? And should I turn on Prefetch Data?

    24. November 30th, 2013 at 07:44 | #24

      @progku
      Hi,

      Amazon don’t like the data being cached too long, depends how frequently the prices change on the items you are showing, between 8 – 24 hours would probably be okay.

      You should not need prefetch data, that’s only if you are having trouble with some special template keywords.

      Paul

      Hi, Thanks for making this great plug-in. Is there a way to automatically generate and update a page that would display all of the amazon products (mostly books) that I refer to in various pages and posts. I’d like to create a Resources Page, a Bibliography Page, and an Appendix, each in alphabetical order. For example, The Resources Page have subjects listed in alphabetical order, and within each subject bloc, have the relivant books listed in alphabetical order. The list would come from my some short code in my pages. I guess this needs to be database driven.

    26. December 6th, 2013 at 16:15 | #26

      @Steven

      Hi, I’ve email you, but I may add support for this sort of thing in the next release of the plugin.

      @Paul
      Hi, Paul–
      I’m having a problem similar to @debjay’s problem. I’ve been using it for a while, and all of a sudden, it quit working. I get a blank page whenever I add a shortcode. The page is http://www.kb6nu.com/ham-stuff.

      I enabled debug, and get the following error messages:

      Notice: add_option was called with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.3 with no alternative available. in /home/kb6nu/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3008

      Notice: add_option was called with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.3 with no alternative available. in /home/kb6nu/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3008

      Notice: add_option was called with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.3 with no alternative available. in /home/kb6nu/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3008

      I tried disabling some of the other plugins, but not all of them, but was unable to figure out which one might be generating these notices.

      As another data point, I am using it successfully on http://www.veteransradiobookstore.com with no problems. Both sites are running v3.1.2.

      Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

    28. January 10th, 2014 at 19:20 | #28

      Hi,

      I would like to know if there is any way to get the items sorted by price (for example).
      I would love to get all the products in this page get sorted by price:
      http://bcollectibles.es/lo-mas-reciente-de-barbie-de-coleccion-en-amazon/

      Thank U in advance!
      Cheers.

    29. January 11th, 2014 at 19:29 | #29

      @Barbies de Colección
      Hi,

      I have created an enhancement to help sorting, you can download it here: http://bit.ly/19kIMFe [Valid till - 18th Jan]. Install in your plugins directory.

      Then add the argument ‘sort=price’ to your shortcode. And update your template:


      <!--ALX-ARGS:price=%PRICE%&title=%TITLE%&artist=%ARTIST% -->
      ... Template Content ...
      <!--ALX-END-->

      Obviously you can add other keywords in the ALX-ARGS section and sort on those.

      Add a ‘!’ to reverse the sort e.g. ‘sort=!price’.

      Hope that helps,

      Paul

    30. January 12th, 2014 at 09:55 | #30

      @Paul
      Thank U so much for your quick answer. I have installed the file and added the shortcode parameter and the lines to my template, but something must be wrong:
      http://bcollectibles.es/lo-mas-reciente-de-barbie-de-coleccion-en-amazon/
      Take a look to the results, please! It looks like it where a random sort.
      Thank U in advance!

    31. January 12th, 2014 at 15:11 | #31

      @Barbies de Colección
      Forgot to say that it won’t work across multiple shortcodes only within one shortcode, i.e. It won’t sort:


      [amazon asin=111111111&template=sort&sort=price]
      [amazon asin=222222222&template=sort&sort=price]
      [amazon asin=333333333&template=sort&sort=price]
      [amazon asin=444444444&template=sort&sort=price]

      But should sort:


      [amazon asin=111111111,222222222,3333333333,444444444&template=sort&sort=price]

      Is this the problem?

      Paul

    32. January 12th, 2014 at 19:06 | #32

      @Paul
      No, sorry. I have all the the asins in the same shortcode as in your example:

      [amazon template=custom wishlist&sort=price&chan=listado-21&asin=B009F7OQK4,B005XTLC3C,B005XTLC5U,B00428QUGE,B002LNEIES,...+150...,B005G8G014]

      And this is the template (but it doesn’t work either with the default iframe image one):

      <!--ALX-ARGS:price=%PRICE%&title=%TITLE%&artist=%ARTIST% -->

      %LINK_OPEN%%LINK_CLOSE%
      %LINK_OPEN%%TITLE%%LINK_CLOSE%
      <strike>Precio Anterior: %LIST_PRICE%</strike>
      Precio: %PRICE%
      %LINK_OPEN%Comprar%LINK_CLOSE%

      <!--ALX-END-->

    33. January 15th, 2014 at 15:28 | #33

      Just a quick note to let you know that your plug-in is causing my WordPress to give me a “Connect Reset” error whenever I update, save, or create a new post.

      I have had to resort to deactivating the plug-in.

      If you can provide an update I would greatly appreciate it. :)

      Thanks,
      Jess

      Hi! I can’t get the link to work. It goes to the amazon site but not our book! Help appreciated…I would love to avoid creating a AWS account if possible. Our books ASIN is 0578048310

    36. February 17th, 2014 at 19:25 | #36

      @katherine
      Hi,

      That can happen if you have a space in the argument string. For example ‘asin= 0578048310′ rather than ‘asin= 0578048310′. Can you post the shortcode you are using?

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for the great plugin.

      I have a issue with my theme not showing the amazon links on the index.php template. They show up on other pages. Is there a way I can manually paste in the code that displays the links?

      Thanks for reading…

    38. Lee
      February 27th, 2014 at 19:17 | #38

      I managed to fix it by swapping code within the theme. Great plugin. Thanks again.

      Thanks so much for this plugin Paul. I am new to this but I really don’t see what other features a person would need – this is brilliant and a pleasure to use.
      I am just a little confused about tracking ID. Under the settings for the Associate IDs, for Amazon tracking ID channels, what do we enter in all those fields? Say I only want to use amazon US and it’s only me – no other user and my tracking id is example-20, what do I put in the fields there: channel name, description and filter?
      Here’s a screenshot:
      http://screencast.com/t/EB7tHz0nkk

      I am guessing you’ll have a giggle at that screenshot – that I’m not meant to put the tracking ID in ALL the fields? Thanks a million, Gill

    41. March 1st, 2014 at 19:30 | #41

      @gill
      Hi Gill,

      If you are only going to have links to amazon.com then you only need to put your tracking ID in the US slot as you have done. If you want to earn commission from other locales you will need to sign up for the appropriate programme and fill those IDs in as well.

      If it’s just you posting links then its best to just put your ID in the ‘default’ channel as the plugin will use this one without you having to set anything else up.

      However if you want to create more channels…

      The ‘name’ is a memorable name to use in your shortcode when selecting the channel by adding 'chan=CHANNEL NAME'. If you use the default channel you don’t need to add this.

      The description is just an informational field to remind you want the channel is for, say you set up channels to track high value items with a name ‘high’ putting something in the description might be helpful.

      The filter is for doing more advanced stuff like setting the channel based on the category of the post or type of post.

      Hope this helps,

      Paul

    42. March 1st, 2014 at 21:54 | #42

      Ah thanks so much Paul for the quick and detailed response. So I just ad my tracking ID to US. This is great. I have Amazon.co.uk too but I find a lot of the items I’m showing on my site aren’t available so I decided just to concentrate on US alone.

      Just to mention too – something I did last night with the image. I installed responsive lightbox plugin and it means when the user clicks the image they get a nice lightbox, rather than the image link in a URL. I just thought it was nice.
      thanks again for the great plugin and the explanation. Gill x

    43. March 2nd, 2014 at 18:50 | #43

      @gill
      No problem,

      I’ve used lightbox style plugins before, changing the thumbnail image to link to the full size image gives a good effect. e.g.


      <a href="%IMAGE%"><img src="%THUMB%"></a>

      Cheers, and good luck with your site,

      I was so happy to find that you actually help people, I left a general message. So, ahem, here’s more information-

      Presently, on my site, the way i originally added links to Amazon was incorrect and, also, I did not have the plugin. However, I do have an Amazon Affiliate Account. So, if you click on a link from my Adult Bookshelf, it will take you to Amazon and it will show you my affiliate ID, but it is not tracking to my account. So, after talking with Amazon, I went the WordPress Route…

      Now, I have the plugin. So, if you go to my Kids Bookshelf and click on the 1st book, you’ll see that it doesn’t even take you out of my site. What am I doing wrong? I’m incredibly frustrated because I don’t understand all of the lingo and I’m just not very technically savvy.

      I would appreciate your help. Thank you so much! – Gena

      Hi Gena,

      No problem, one thing that might be muddling up the links is that you have another amazon localizer plugin running, this might be clashing with the Amazon Link plugin.

      Try disabling this and see if it makes a difference.

      Cheers,

      Paul

      Hi Paul-Thank you! OK, I’ll disable it. But I only added it after the Plugin didn’t work thinking-maybe that’s the magic bullet?! I know absurd! But, I’m wandering around in the dark over here, quite hilariously. OK, going to disable that one now. Then what? Thank you!

      Hi Gena,

      Next try a simple text link for example put the following ‘shortcode’ in your post:

      [amazon asin=0807563811&title=Peaceful Piggy Meditation&text=Peaceful Piggy Meditation&artist=Kerry Lee Maclean]

      This should give a simple text link to a specific book, with the text ‘Peaceful Piggy Meditation’.

      Does that work?

      Hi Paul-I cannot believe you are helping me, thank you.

      So, I cut + pasted the above link and it did not work.
      If you try and click it now, you’ll see it does that thing where it takes you to a page still on my website that says “Page Not Found.”

      What next? Thank you- Gena

      Hi Gena,

      No worries, it helps me to improve the plugin if people post their problems.

      I think I know what you might be doing wrong, when putting the shortcode in a post don’t use the ‘Insert Link’ button in the editor. Just paste the shortcode directly into the post content.

      For info: If you don’t want to use a plugin and just want to copy the links that Amazon provide. You should do the same thing (paste the link directly into the post content). You may need to use the ‘text’ editor for this to work though – rather than the ‘visual’ one.

      If you are using my plugin there should also be a helper section ‘Add Amazon Link’ on the post/page edit screen to assist in inserting shortcodes into the post. Check ‘Screen Options’ at the top of the page if it is not there.

      Cheers,

      Paul

      Hi Paul. I’m trying to insert a target=”blank” to be sure that every link will open a new page to Amazon but it doesn’t work. Is there any way to do this ? Thank you so much !

      @Michael
      Hi Michael,

      In the Amazon Link Settings page, just enable ‘New Window Link’ that should ensure all links have target=’blank’.

      Hope that helps,

      Paul
