<code>all the code here</code>
Thanks, I’ll have a go… here goes:
<iframe src="http://rcm-uk.amazon.co.uk/e/cm?t=nicsblo0e-21&o=2&p=8&l=as1&asins=B005C1GIFS&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_top&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr" style="width:120px;height:240px;" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0"></iframe>
Ahhh, that is the problem, it is an iframe. iframes are not allowed here for security reasons, that is why things are getting stripped out.
Let me work on this for you and see if I can rewrite things and get it to work for you.
This isn’t exactly like the Amazon stuff, but give this a try and see if it works for you. Paste it into a text widget.
<div style="text-align: center;"> <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005C1GIFS/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_til?tag=nicsblo0e-21&camp=1406&creative=6394&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=B005C1GIFS&adid=1SAQVN282KVPD9JEFSZH&" target="_top"><img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51YhHdntfWL._SL110_.jpg" alt="" /></a> <p id="title"><a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005C1GIFS/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_til?tag=nicsblo0e-21&camp=1406&creative=6394&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=B005C1GIFS&adid=1SAQVN282KVPD9JEFSZH&" target="_top">Sophie's Turn Buy New from amazon.co.uk</a></p> </div>
Wow! That’s amazing, thank you SO much! It’s worked, and it’s lovely. I couldn’t even pretend to understand what you’ve done… or what an iframe is, or why it poses security problems…but at least now I have a pic of my book with a clickable link right on my blog where it belongs. THANK YOU!! I was going round and round in circles. You know what they say: a little knowledge is a dangerous thing… especially when it comes to messing round with blogs and codes, when i haven’t go a clue! :-)
PS: I won’t get into trouble with amazon for altering the code, will I? This is part of their ‘associate program’ and I think they track where and how purchasers use this link and all that… I assume that’s still all in there, is it? I found my unique ‘identifier’ anyway… so that’s alright, isn’t it?
You are welcome and no problems with Amazon. All they care about is the link to their site and the book.
