So you like to add Amazon products in your WordPress blog posts but they keep running down your page vertically. Well you can fix this rather easily by inclosing the Amazon code in a table, yep a simple HTML table will do the trick, the only problem is the whitespace below it but that is in the Amazon code you could remove that too but it takes some playing around with the div tags and if your listing a few products then you may want to just leave that be it’ll save you some time.
Anyway here is the simple HTML tables that I use, nothing fancy but they do the trick. You can get fancy and change the border size or add color to the cells, or even a title bar like (books) (movies), you get the idea. I used the HTML Encoder to encode and display the code because WordPress won’t let you display raw code it want to interpret it, which is fine but the need to make a method to display raw code without jumping through hoops.
It’ rather simple, all you do is paste it in Notepad or whatever your favorite pure text editor is, hop over to Amazon grab the code for the item you want to display and then paste it in between the td tags. You can also add another row by adding another set of tr tags with the td tags below the closing tr tag. Confused I don’t blame you.
You’ll need an associates account to get the code and profit from it. Easy enough to get, plenty of information on how to set that up online. That about covers it but if you still need a little help you can follow along with the short video. Uh video will come later, I will have to remake it, had too many interruptions AC kicking off and on, phone ringing, people coming in and talking without knocking etc. Or I just may do a slide show using screen shots that would cut out the background noise. Oh well screen shots will have to do.
Oh good grief come on why can’t I upload the rest of my images without a freaking error lol. Just my luck not even a cloud in the sky to blame the crappy Internet on just Dish Network or WildBlue whoever powers this crappy Internet need a kick in the rear. Guess I will just have to go to McDonalds to steel their Wi-Fi lol.
