  • Hello,

    I’ve found your plugin to be very useful. I’m glad that you have time again to update it – thanks!

    I find that if I have several amazon links on a page, random ones will be missing. The text for the item is there, but without a link. If I reload the page, the links that are missing will change. (If I have 1,2,3,4,5 as links, one time the link for 4 will be missing and another time the link for 1,2 & 5 will be missing.) I’ve disabled the product cache, but that doesn’t help. Is there a limit to the number of links per page that the plugin will support? That doesn’t seem likely as sometimes, only 2 or 3 links will work out of 20.

    This page on natural postpartum depression remedies is a good example of the problem. In the article there are 3 normal links and then there are supposed to be 15 amazon links but a random number show up. If you reload it, different links will show up every time. (The most are near point #18: Use essential oils for depression – a bunch of essential oils are links.)

    If it is not to much trouble can you send me the post editor content for the page you linked to above? ( This would allow me to run some tests on it on my own sites so I can see if there is any throttles occurring on the API calls.

    I’ve heard of this ocuring in the old version of the plugin and hopefully we can get this resolved.

    Hey Matthew,

    thanks for your helpful plugin!

    Unfortunately, we are experiencing the same problems as reported above on our site.

    To me, it seems to be pretty random which product links are broken and which work as expected.

    For example, on this page, the image is correctly linked to the Amazon product page, but the button, which should appear at the bottom of the page, is not rendered at all.

    You can find the post’s editor content here.

    Thanks and greets!
