embedding amazon html link in text widget to show picture

    A while back, “thescaredpath” helped me sort out the following problem: I wanted to embed an amazon html link into the TEXT widget on my sidebar to display an image of my book and have a clickable link to ‘buy now’, taking the reader straight to the relevant site on amazon. The code I’d been given used an iframe and “thesacredpath” very kindly made it so that it would work on my blog.

    I have updated my book cover on amazon and would love the link in the text widget to bring up this new image. I’ve got the new code from amazon but still can’t make it work; i’m a bit of a programming dummy. Any chance of another helping hand–I would really appreciate it! Thanks so much.

    Code is below…

    <iframe src=”http://rcm-uk.amazon.co.uk/e/cm?lt1=_blank&bc1=000000&IS2=1&bg1=FFFFFF&fc1=D51EB1&lc1=0000FF&t=nicsblo0e-21&o=2&p=8&l=as4&m=amazon&f=ifr&ref=ss_til&asins=B005C1GIFS” style=”width:120px;height:240px;” scrolling=”no” marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ frameborder=”0″></iframe>

    The blog I need help with is nickywellsklippert.wordpress.com.



    Hi. Why not simply follow again his instructions, but simply changing the ASIN number within the code?


    Thanks for your message! I tried that but of course the ASIN hasn’t changed, just everything around it so I’m finding it hard to know what’s what… and it didn’t work. I think I need to get rid of the iframes again but I don’t know how… What’s that they say? A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Any help greatly appreciated! X
