The Plugin Wel!Amazon Adds is an easy way to include Amazon links into your WordPress Blog. It enables the integration of Image Links and Extended Links directly from the Amazon database. These links can be placed into the text or on the sidebar, so that each page gets a suitable sidebar for the topic of the content. For more flexibility, the Amazon links can be displayed as a randomized link or crossfaded several links.
The plugin comes with german and english translations, please refer to the WordPress Codex for more information about activating the translation. If you want to help to translate the plugin to your language, please have a look at the sitemap.pot file which contains all definitions and may be used with a gettext editor like Poedit.
