    Is it possible to use our own image in the case that Amazon won't send one via the API?

    Ie. Can we somehow use our own image instead of this one:

    Thanks again for the great work and awesome plugin!

    Hi,

    That would be a good idea! Currently no it can't.

    I can provide an extra plugin that will override the default image if you want?

    You can always manually specify the image and thumb in the shortcode using the image and thumb keywords. However images specified in the shortcode are always used in preference to the Amazon one, so only do this if you know the product has no image.

    Hi,

    Try downloading and installing this in the WordPress plugins folder, activate it and you should have an extra option to set the No Image URL.

    It does other things as well, like setting the size of the Image and Thumbnail.

    Hi Paul,
    Sorry I have not tried the plugin. I ended up simply modifying the thumb/image arrays in amazon.php. Not a great solution obviously since we may update to a new version of your plugin and lose the change but it worked fine.

    Thanks again.
