When I'm using the Amazon capsule to show 3 or more ads, I almost always select specific products, by searching through the Amazon site first, and collect the ASIN numbers.
Many times I change my mind, and want them in a different order. Unfortunately, it's not an easy matter to re-arrange the order. It requires a bit of cutting a pasting.
I'd like to be able to re-arrange the items in the capsule, much like you can in the 'links' capsule. It would be a real time-saver.
This may be able to help you.
This doesn't seem like strenuous copy and pasting since you should be able to do it all right from the Amazon capsule, unless I am missing something.
My big question about the Amazon capsule is whether or not it is refreshed when you don't choose specific products, but rather products based on keywords.
For example, if something is a big seller at the time of publish but drops considerably over time, will the Amazon capsule change and provide the new top seller/s among your products advertised?
Sorry Julie2...wrong URL. This link calls up the same thread we're already on. Try again.
Timorous, what a great suggestion!
I've also wondered about that at times. Sometimes, I need to delete one in a list of nine and it's right at the top, so it means I have to redo the entire list.
I like it!
if you chose specific product you will get rid of your problem
I do choose specific products, with the ASIN number. The Amazon capsule, the way it's currently implemented, does not allow drag and drop re-ordering.
yah, i understand what you are saying but Sophia Angelique's problem was different.
copy/paste seems to be the current solution of your problem. I have a strategy that saves lots of time. I open the hub in two tab. I take one of them in edit mood then copy the product link from the not-in-edit-mood-hub and paste it in the under-editing hub.
Drag and drop would be a lot easier peasier.
I never said I don't support the concept, i just tried to give a solution for the current situation Don't mind, please. I am not opposing you.
I'm glad you brought this up, timorous. I've been meaning to make the exact same suggestion! It's a huge pain to reorder Amazon items with the current capsules. It's a whole copy/paste debacle, and time-consuming.
1. Your Captain beefheart Hub is awesome
2. Your request should be uber easy to implement by HP
3.Why wouldnt you just do one item per amazon capsule for this issue?
1. thanks very much...I've always been a big fan of C.B.
2. I would imagine so.
3. You could do that, of course, but I'll wait until the drag and drop feature is implemented, I think.
p.s. I've been reading over your hubs on backlinking etc. Excellent stuff.

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...

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?
