[resolved] Reviews not showing up on certain pages. (5 posts)

    We got the reviews to show up on a test page of our site but when we tried to put them into out product page under amazon reviews we can not get them to show up. http://www.bestreviewpal.com/product/wd-my-passport-portable-external-hard-drive-storage-usb-3-0/

    Not sure if I need to insert php into the page instead of the short code.

    Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

    Hello, bestreviewpal.

    First, thanks for using ScrapeAZon.

    I visited the Passport Portable External Hard Drive storage link you provided above. I can see the ScrapeAZon iframe there displaying several of the 1,044 reviews for the product. It's at the top of the page and to the right of the image of the product.

    If you are not seeing the same thing, I recommend clearing your browser cache and emptying any WordPress caching plugins you might have installed. It is possible that you are seeing an earlier version of your page in your browser.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Hi James, I tried visiting the support threads to ask a question but I don't know how to start a new thread so I'll have to ask it here...

    Is this plugin compliant with amazon associates terms and conditions (being it an Iframe)?

    I really like it and would like to roll it out sitewide on my review blog, but I've heard a lot of horror stories from affiliates having their accounts suspended because they used Iframes on their sites.

    Is this not cookie dropping?

    Problem solved!

    I contacted amazon associates and they responded within 5 minutes, I thought I'd be waiting for days!

    Here is the reply I received:


    Hello Carl,

    Thanks for taking the time to contact us; I'd be glad to help.

    You may also visit and or post on our Product Advertising API forums. Many experienced members of the Amazon Associates program regularly participate in the forums, and can provide assistance if you encounter issues. You can access the Discussion Boards via the following URL:

    Hello, Carl.

    Good question and thank you for the follow-up. In addition to Amazon's comments above, I will point out that the reviews appear in an iframe because that's the only way the Amazon API returns them (as a URL to be presented within an iframe). In other words, ScrapeAZon never loads the content of the reviews themselves. It only creates the iframe that uses the Amazon URL as the source.

    Thanks again for asking the question and for using ScrapeAZon.
