    Hi, I am trying to link the buy text to my song. This is the url:

    http://yoururl.com/checkout?edd_action=add_to_cart&download_id=435

    But after saving it and going back to update song, I notice that the link is now

    http://yoururl.com/checkout?edd_action=add_to_cart

    Anything I need to do differently?

    That's weird... almost like a limit on characters? I'll test it and see if this is happening always or just on your site... Stay tuned...

    I've noticed that it doesn't like '&' in Song titles. It drops the & and everything after it.
    Could this be the problem?

    Ok yeah definitely an odd character or symbol could break it... I'll run some tests and see if it can be replicated and if so, then hopefully fixed.

    Ok guys confirmed that & symbol is the culprit. Have released a fix in latest version 1.6 Please update the plugin and let me know if you have any further problems with this.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the plugin!

    I've just started a blog at http://whatisbest.info and am trying to use it, but also having a problem with the URL being truncated. It should be:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007U9F946/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=B007U9F946&linkCode=as2&tag=whaisbes-21

    But gets truncated to this in the "Link Buy Text" field

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007U9F946/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=6738&creati

    Thanks for your help,
    Jennifer

    Thanks for reporting this Jennifer... seems to be a few people now with issues for URL truncating... I think I'd better do some further testing and try to get this fixed!

    Will report back here once I've found the issue.

    The database fields are too short.
    I had to go into the WordPress MySQL database and expand these fields to 255 characters.

    I found the same problem with artist field, as I am using the artist field to add song credits which needed to be more than 100 characters.

    Yup this problem is noted and will be fixed in next release (later this week hopefully). In the meantime anyone experiencing it can use Sogwap's suggested fix. (thanks Sogwap!)
