[Resolved] Amazon Affiliates Links using Function.php to generate link also using ACF field

    Hi there,

    Basically I am trying to get a function to work in a page theme file so that I can set a link on an image and some text to the products amazon page. I have create Books as a custom post type, and have developed a number of customer fields using Advanced Custom Fields.

    One of these fields is n Amazon Affiliate Product Number.

    This number is to be used as part of the link.

    Currently my function in function.php looks like this:

    function getAffiliateLink($productCode)
    
    {
    
      global $VisitorCountry;
    
      if ( isset($VisitorCountry) ) {
    
        if ($VisitorCountry->GetCode() == 'GB') {
    
          return 'http://amazon.co.uk/gp/product/' . $productCode . '/?tag=indautlan-21';
    
        } else if ($VisitorCountry->GetCode() == 'CA') {
    
          return 'http://amazon.ca/gp/product/' . $productCode . '/?tag=indautlan00-20';
    
        } else {
    
          return 'http://amazon.com/gp/product/' . $productCode . '/?tag=indautlan-20';
    
        }
    
      }
    
    }

    One of my anchor tags currently looks like this:

    <a href="<?php ?>" title="Get more details for <?php the_title(); ?>">
    						<div id="book-cover" class="featured" style="background-image:url('<?php echo $image[0]; ?>')">
    						</div>
    					</a>

    This is missing the href obviously as I am still trying to work out how to call the function, as well as place the Amazon Product Number in the $productCode variable in the function.

    Also, I call the Amazon Product Number from Advanced Custom Fields using:

    $asin = get_field(amazon_product_code);

    Any help anyone could give me on this would be highly welscomed… I also have another post open on another issue but regarding the same site, that can be found here:

    Hope to hear back from someone soon, any help on this would be very very appreciated, sure I’m just missing something simple!
