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.
It is easy , click the edit hub button and add a amazon block to your hub.
Then click edit on the amazon block and insert the link.
I hoe this helps
On a text capsule
Highlight the word/phrase you want to make your anchor link.
Click on the Chain icon to insert your link.
Hi manthy & vexez
I tried as suggested but what came out is this: #mce_temp_url# I tried with a few other links and got the same results. Any reason why? Thnks
Hmm what browser are you using?
I'm not sure what exactly is the problem on your side.
What I can think of now is to suggest you to try on a different browser.
Internet Explorer / Google Chrome / Firefox / Safari
Do get their latest version update to make sure your browser runs properly.
I think there is some misunderstanding here. First you can't insert HTML code into a text capsule. You can add a URL as a link however. If you want to use Amazon then it is done via an Amazon capsule not HTML. This is all covered in 'help' - menu bar, top right
Hi again manthy/vexez: Sorry I didn't follow your instruction properly (I need to highlight the text and then click on the chain icon)..did this and when I test by clicking on the highlighted text, it brought me back to my hubpage and not to the external link...what is my mistake here?

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs. Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on the products so far. I wanted to know whether this actually works, so I clicked on...

I've seen a couple of hubs where there is a link to an Amazon search results page, and the hubbers affiliate code is in the URL so they will get credit for the sale, even though it is not through an Amazon capsule.Is anyone willing to tell me how to do it? One I saw actually looks like the hubber...

I like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2 in-text amazon links whereas we can make a slew of Amazon links using the Amazon...

I have always added my Products via a keyword search but I have been asked to add a couple of products via links instead. I am not sure whether my being in the UK makes a difference but should I be adding links from Amazon.com or from Amazon UK? I know that most of my traffic still...

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when I go on there and choose the product? Or does this only work for people who have...
