  1. Hi

    The plugin seems great, but I just cannot get it to work.

    I am using WP 3.2 Have curl, triple checked amazon credentials. Not quite sure what else to do to debug. Any suggestions?

  2. Anyway I can localize the affiliate links? I have a localizer plug-in installed but it is not affect the links generated from your plug-in.

  3. Hi Alain, This is a great plugin thanks for the effort put in. How can I add this to the theme so that it is displayed on the homepage after the list of posts?

    1. You can add the shortcode using php. Try this:

      echo do_shortcode( ‘[amz-related-products ...the attrs here..]‘ )

        1. Oops the code I posted didnt show up in my comment perhaps because I added the php open/close tags. Let me try that again. Here is the code that worked for me:

          echo do_shortcode( “[amz-related-products ...the attrs here...]” )

    1. Question: The related products appears on the preview section? If yes, check with one of the default themes. If that works check if your theme includes wp_footer().

  4. Are the product listed having Affiliate link… or can user insert their own amazon affiliate tracking id in either way ? If its not possible plugin may be useless.

    1. Yes, the links comming with the affiliate id from amazon api. You can verify it on the link url and amazon reports on other links.
