For some reason i can't get a amazon products URL go into the amazon capsule. I know you can now only use one product, but when i cut and paste a book's amazon page url it pastes, then turns into a smaller link but when i save and publish it isn't there. Is there something i am doing wrong?
First of all, let's go step by step and see if we can find the problem that way. Make sure you aren't putting the URL in the Place called "Capsule Subtitle. Next, since you want to put in a URL for a specific product, click "Choose a specific product." In the second photo, You see the space for "Amazon URL or ASIN or ISBN." Paste the URL in that spot. In the next photo, click on Preview Amazon result. Here is where a particular issue can arise. If you have chosen a product and its URL which is actually offered directly from Amazon, the link will work and your product will appear at the bottom of the box. But if Amazon is not the supplier, but is only allowing a third party to advertise on their space, the URL will not work in the Amazon capsule. I'm looking on Amazon for an example and can't find one right at the moment. . If it is an Amazon product, click "Add a Review". Type your review in the space and click "Save."
Ad-blockers interfere with these capsules as well.

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...
