    Can you have the plugin find items, and then contextually link to Amazon.
    If I do a post that includes the word COOKBOOK, then the plugin will place a link for me of that topic.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    This sounds quite tricky to do, although you can get Amazon to create contextual ad-blocks, e.g. using a template something like:

    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
    amazon_ad_tag = "%TAG%"; amazon_ad_width = "728"; amazon_ad_height = "90";//--></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.assoc-amazon.%TLD%/s/ads.js"></script>

    Have a look at the Amazon Contextual Widgets in the UK site they are here: https://widgets.amazon.co.uk/?sort=Featured&category=Contextual

    Or did you have something else in mind? Like adding a new taxonomy to WordPress say 'products' or 'keywords' and tag each post with appropriate labels to allow the plugin to construct links that search for products based on those keywords?

    Paul
