display my books
« on: January 04, 2021, 09:08:20 pm »
Hi.  I'm a total newbie here. I tried to use the 'Link Maker' to place the Amazon Kindle link on my posts, and failed, mostly because I don't know what I'm doing LOL. I typed in one of my books and searched Amazon Kindle and my book came up fine but I don't know how to proceed from there. Can anyone direct me to a 'Help' file to let me know what to do next?
Thanks so much

    The link maker was built by the original owner of the site who died some years ago. The site was subsequently sold and the new owners have not kept up the code. Amazon changed some protocols probably 2 years ago and the automatic link maker hasn't worked properly since.

    There is a manual one -- on the link maker page, there's a line that says:

    (Note: the older, manual version of Link-Maker is available here.)

    On that page, the final word -- "here" -- is a link to that version.


    edited to add: the whole discussion may soon become moot because they forum owners have announced they'll be changing/upgrading the forum software, probably sometime late this month. Who knows what features will be available then, or how (whether) they'll work?
