Hi, I'm new to hubpages and am trying to insert an amazon capsule. Nothing seems to be happening when I insert the url, keyword or ASIN. I try to preview it and nothing happens. I tried saving it and nothing happens. It seems that no matter which way I try to tackle this problem, it always ends the same. I just can't seem to insert any amazon adds on my hubs. Any ideas?
I tend to add mainly books. This is what I do:
Add an Amazon capsule to my hub.
Click on 'Choose specific products', which opens three boxes as default.
I then go to the list of product information details, on Amazon, and find the 10-digit ISBN number.
So, for a version of 'Tom Sawyer', I found ISBN-10: 1402712162.
I would then insert this number ~ 1402712162 ~ into one of the boxes.
Then hit 'preview' and / or 'save'.
If you are doing this, and it is not working, then I'm sorry, but I have no idea how to help.
When you hit hit and choose 'specific products' you can also copy the url from along the top of the product page you have chosen and add that. As soon as you click on save it converts to the ISBN number too.
Or you can choose 'keywords' and insert the name of the type of products you would want to display. Then when you click save, products should display. If you don't like the look of them, simply click on 'delete everything and start over' and choose another similar keyword.
One of those methods should work.
Oops sorry - this post is not aimed at you Trish, but to the OP
Penny, are you saying you can't insert the Amazon capsule, or that you can't insert any products after you've got the capsule inserted?
Yes, I have pretty much tried all of those and it hasn't worked. But thank you for taking the time to stop by and answer my post.
One other option that may well remedy your situation is to clear your browser cache and then try again.
OK. I know it sounds like a dumb question, but you never know... Some people just dive in without reading any of the instructions.
It's also true to say that Amazon capsules should go into place complete with your chosen products whether or not you have an Amazon account.
It's okay, I really appreciate you taking the time to try and help me though.
PennyCarey, I get a system glitch on Amazon capsules too. When I try to insert Amazon products, it looks like nothing is happening. I can't preview within the capsule. But when I hit save anyway, and when I am done editing the whole hub, the products are there. If I remember correctly, I can see them when I preview the hub too. Do your products show up eventually on the hub?
HubPages was unable to create this, and since I do manage to get the products on, I wasn't too worried about insisting on a solution.
The issue with my amazon capsules has been resolved. I got it to work when I switched from my desktop to my netbook lol. Go figure... Thank you everyone for your help, it is very much appreciated!

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...

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 only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I have been updating my hubs, but almost all of the amazon capsules have been snipped (even if there is only one on the hub and it is directly relating to the article). I see that HP is limiting them, but is there a definitive rule that is being used to snip out the products capsules? I...

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read it is generally a good idea to have one or two hubs already posted before I try...

This is a two-fold issue. I know we're in the middle of a Google Typhoon or whatever animal is wreaking havoc this month plus the summer traffic is, well, obviously somewhere else. In January/February of this year, my traffic was around 2000 views per day. Right now, I'm lucky if I crack 400. I'm...
