I just joined 3days ago and in the mist of writing my first hub. I tried to insert the HTML code (for my amazon affiliate link)in my main text but it does not work. I have to confess that I have not read all the articles and resources available and looking for a quick answer by posting this question on this forum. Pls. bear with me.
