A high-power Wordpress plugin for blogs that link to Amazon products.
Amazon Express will automatically generate grids or lists of the products that you enter into your Wordpress blog. Grids can have any number of columns, and lists include descriptive text from the corresponding post.
You can associate an Amazon product to any posts in your Wordpress blog by entering the ISBN or Amazon ASIN into a box on the sidebar of the edit screen. The product image and links are automatically inserted, and the post contents can be used to create a customized product description.
Assign a rating to each product so you can filter out low-ranking products on some pages, while still displaying all products on other pages. You can also sort the grids and listings by rating or by post date. There is also an option to group by category and subcategory.
After the initial setup, your Amazon Associate Tag will be saved and automatically inserted into your links so that you can start generating advertising revenue quickly and easily. You'll never have to log into the Associates portal to get link codes anymore.
First, you have to add posts to your blog for Amazon products. Create a new post and insert an ISBN or ASIN in the Amazon Express box on the right hand side of the edit screen.
After you have added a few product posts, you can create a grid or listing by adding the
amazonx shortcode to a new post or page. Just enter [amazonx] anywhere in the
contents. Wordpress will replace this with a product listing of all the products that
you added. There are many options that you can use to customize the listing. For example,
to create a grid of at most 9 products with a rating of 3 or higher, you can use
The table below lists all the options you can use in the shortcode. The "#" sign can be any number. The values for show_categories, group_by_categories, and sort_by_rating can be set to 1 to turn them on, or 0 to turn them off.
|category=#||list items in category ID #|
|minrating=#||exclude results with rating below #|
|maxrating=#||exclude results with rating above #|
|show_categories=1||show heading for each subcategory|
|group_by_category=1||group items by subcategory|
|sort_by_rating=1||sort results with highest rating first|
|columns=#||display in a grid of rows with # items|
|columns=1||display sequential list of items (default)|
|limit=#||display at most # results per group|
Amazon Express is free to download and use. However, 10% of links are selected at random each time the page loads and the associate tag is overridden with Rampant Logic's associate tag. Modifying this functionality or changing the source code in any way is prohibited.
