Amazon Link

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

New Install

  1. Install either via WordPress Plugin Installer (Go to: 'Plugins' > 'Add New' admin page and Search Plugins using the term 'amazon link'). Or by uploading the files to your server (in '/wp-content/plugins/') after downloading the amazon-link plugin from the Plugin Directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  3. Update the settings (at the very least enter the default Affiliate Tags)
  4. If you wish to use the advanced functionality: Wishlists, Search, Media Upload facilities or the live data option you must also set up an Amazon Web Services account. So that you can update the AWS Public and Private key settings.
  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.
