    Hi there, your plugin is exceptionally good and I will be recommending it to all I can.

    I would like to know if it is possible to change the buy it at Amazon button to a text link ?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thank You.
    If you use the shortcode [amazon-elements] you can use a text link instead of a button. See the Shortcode Usage page in the plugin settings page for more information on how to use that shortcode.

    If using the post method (you just enter the asin in the box on the edit page), then no, not at this time.

    Warm regards.

    Hi Don thanks for the quick reply.

    I use the amazon elements short codes and have tried many different variations to produce a link with the text I require.

    For example using the following shortcode [amazon-element asin="B00AZMFK3K" fields="new-price,link" labels="new-price::new,link::Buy it now at Amazon"] produces a raw link, please see here http://diggories.com/terfre/ what I am trying to do is produce a text link that simply says "Buy it now at Amazon" rather than use an image as my research has found that there is a greater ctr with text links as apposed to image links.

    I have found a way to do what I want using the title element:

    [amazon-element asin="B00AZMFK3K" fields="new-price,title" labels="new-price::new,title::Buy it now at Amazon"]

    The above outputs my desired link.
