I wrote a recipe hub and wanted to add some recommended cookbooks at the end. I created an Amazon capsule and selected the cookbooks. When I previewed the capsule, it said "No Amazon products found." I deleted it and tried again, this time letting it use keywords to select products automatically. I got the same error. How can I fix this?
Sometimes this happens, not sure why. I just edited one of my hubs and noticed all of my Amazon capsules said, No Amazon Products Found. I looked at another hub, and did not open it to edit, and the Amazon products are showing.
I noticed the same thing on a hub posted last night, though I didn't have any problem with the products showing last night. I went to edit a misspelled word I discovered a minute ago and I saw the "no products found" message. My other hubs seem to be okay though.
Now it seems to be affecting published hubs, too. Of course I got a moderator e-mail saying my hub needs revision because it is "incomplete." How is the fact that HP's program isn't pulling info from Amazon properly my fault?
I sure hope they don't start unpublishing all the hubs missing the products. I just checked my other hubs and it seems they are ALL now missing Amazon products. I do NOT want to have to go in to remove all the capsules as I have 120 hubs. That's way too much work, to only have to add them back in when the problem is fixed. I've also had another one waiting to be published but I suppose I'll just publish and hope nothing else happens.
It seems there are quite a few problems happening on the pages in the last few days!
Same also. Checked with Amazon Associates and my account is still active, as well as, Hub Earnings shows active. Twelve to eighteen hours of down-time, on this feature, cannot be a good thing, for the global Hub Writers in general, and for myself especially because it is my only revenue source on Hub Pages.
True. Which begs the question "Why is there always something?" This kind of glitch should not be happening! There is no other site-wide element that should interfere with the Amazon API, be it JSON, PHP or ROR. I know technology and it can be a fickle thing, but the best rule of thumb is true, "If it isn't broken, do not fix it. If it is broken, fix it once and not have to fix it again."
I'm just aggravated that they unpublished my hub because it said "no Amazon products found." I have no control over that whatsoever; the products were listed when I published the hub. Now I've lost page views because it took them about 12 hours to review the hub and re-publish it.
There is no way I would have the time to go in and delete Amazon capsules from all of my hubs. Hopefully this will be resolved soon. At least the staff at HP seems to be aware of it and are working on it.
This problem is NOT fixed for me. My hub at http://mattforte.hubpages.com/hub/Futur … ology-2013 has several Amazon capsules, none of which are showing up at all. I just formatted my HD and installed Windows 7 (from Vista) so it's not a cache problem or anything of that sort. I deleted some capsules and tried to re-add them, changed products - no go. Even when I just try the "preview product" button it simply changes my URL to an item number, and doesn't preview the item. (I'm having this problem throughout my entire account, I just used the above hub as an example so it can be checked out...and I get 75% of my traffic from that hub so I know I'm missing out on potential profit here)
Yes and no. I found that AdBlock blocks amazon capsules. It even blocks the "preview" within the Amazon capsules. This concerns me because a LOT of people use AdBlock, and I believe it's native in recent builds of Firefox. Might there be a workaround for this in the near future? I can see Amazon products on many other pages around the web, just not HubPages. They aren't obnoxious "CONGRATULATIONS, YOU WON!" ads so I don't think I'd have any moral implications against working around AdBlock.
I would have responded sooner, but for some reason my forum privileges were removed...I wasn't told why - and I hardly ever come to the forums o.O
We have no control over what content third party browser extensions, plugin-ins, and add-ons block. I just checked the latest release of Firefox for both Windows and OS X and do not see AdBlock. I would suggest disabling AdBlock.
