Hubpage will not take my affiliate link from Amazon, using the HTML. How do I resolve this?
Hubpages won't let you use html. You need to open your hub in edit mode and select an Amazon capsule, then add the URL or the IBSN number of the article you want to promote manually. Then click OK and your selected item(s) should be displayed.
When picking a product from Amazon to paste into Amazon capsule on HP, use the *Text* link which auto configures to ISBN code and shows up on your site. Hope that helps. Welcome to HubPages
Short answer - use a capsule
long answer - you certainly can use the html from amazon or any other source as a link - you can use the anchor text you just cant use the image src.
take the link that follows a href and insert into any text or link capsule using the chain icon or html editor function
