Amazon Product Widget

This plugin provides a multi-widget, which displays a random product (like a book) from a given list of Amazon product numbers (ASIN).

Q: I tried to install the Amazon Product Widget-Plugin and am getting the following error while trying to save configuration: file_get_contents() failed. Please ensure that PHP's native function file_get_contents() is allowed to read URL's Configuration could not be saved!

A: The Amazon Product Widget make use of the PHP function "file_get_contents()" to read data from the Amazon API. But sometimes the default PHP configuration (php.ini) does not allow to read URLs due to security reasons. Change the value of "allow_url_fopen" to "1". More information about this issue: http://www.php.net/manual/en/filesystem.configuration.php#ini.allow-url-fopen
