I'm writing about memoirs, and when I mention a book, I'd like to give readers a way to jump to the book page on Aamazon. I understand there is a rule that I can't make money from the blog. (I understand that Amazon associates make almost nothing anyway). So I would like to add links to Amazon books but without the associates code. That raises two questions:
1) Can I generate my Amazon associates link, and then just delete the associates code? (hopefully it will be obvious when I look at the html what it is I need to delete. Any tips would be appreciated.)
2) In the WordPress user interface, when I compose a post, I'm not sure where to insert this html code. Should I just go to the Code page, and paste it in and see what happens, or can I paste it into the Links dialog box?
