Amazon Link
[resolved] Random "No image available" (3 posts)

    I've been using Amazon Link on a site but it's having problems:


    The product images are randomly replaced with "no image available." I visit the products and verify there are images. I double-check the URLs. But each time I refresh, it's a different set of missing images.

    I tried this with and without the caching enabled.

    I do have W3 Total Cache installed, but these missing images show up even if I'm logged in.

    Please help!

    Your site looks fine at the moment (20 Images), I did several refreshes and it did not get any missing images.

    I'm surprised turning on the Amazon Link cache did not help with the problem as once the item is in the cache it should not need to fetch it again.

    Amazon have recently changed the request limits (https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/advertising/api/detail/faq.html) so this may impact your page if you do not use the amazon link cache.

    I'm hoping to get a new revision of the plugin out soon, just got a couple of niggles to sort out, one of the things I have fixed was some corruption in the cache. Although this would cause the same item to always be corrupted.

    Could it be that the W3 Total Cache is caching the 'no image available' items?

    Sill me. I apparently didn't clear W3TC after I implemented Amazon Link's cache. So I guess there wasn't a problem after all!

    But it's also really helpful to know the request limits.

    Thank you for your help!
