Hi, I'm a newbie, and I've been using the Amazon capsule choose specific product option on a lot of my hubs. What I want to know is, if for some reason the product is deleted on Amazon how does the hub fail?
I.e. does it just show up as an empty space?
Does hubpages tell you that the link has failed automatically?
Funny you should ask, I had something similar when for some reason although the page on amazon existed (for my new hub I created today) it said no product could be found.
So it does seem that hubpages tells you the link has failed.
you will see a broken link alert. I am not sure though if it is applicable for amazon. WryLit will come soon and answer you soon.
WryLit has been rockin on those answers of late hasn't she?!?! Probably deserves a little badge maybe even a job with HP
I think that it is some kind of blip - this problem affected a number of people a few weeks ago, but I have also had it happen again to a lesser extent over the last couple of days.
Actually that doesn't answer your question - sorry. If the product is not available on Amazon it will simply say 'no products found', but you will not have a way of knowing this unless you view the hub.
thanks for your answer, Jackson Riddle, saleheensblog, and Polly C . Interesting, but a bit worrying. I'd hoped to set and forget these hub pages, just coming back to them if I had something to add.
As a follow up to this, is the Amazon capsule the best way to "spotlight" a single amazon item?
Coming from the "other" revenue sharing content site, I am used to having a specific "Amazon spotlight module" for this type of need.

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...

Last night I couldn't get an amazon capsule to appear in my new hub. I kept getting a message that says "Something went wrong..." I need this capsule to show the product I am talking about in my hub.

I have been trying without success to get those specific products or even Amazon banners posted into some of my hubs. They say to highlight the code (which I do) and then paste it into the website. I have tried doing it in the code section, Amazon section and also tried it in the RSS...
