New Site Feature – Amazon.co.uk Links

Posted by Big Boo on October 21st, 2007

This weekend I’ve been working on a new feature for the site – integration with Amazon.co.uk!

You’ll now find that some posts will have an extra link at the end of them (when you view the entire post) that will either take you to a relevant product page on the Amazon.co.uk website, or alternatively a list of search results relevant to that post.  Well, that’s the idea, but if you browse the web with Internet Explorer the search version probably won’t work!  The links work fine on Firefox however, so I think something is going wrong with Internet Explorer or Amazon themselves.  I’ll keep looking though, in case it’s something I’ve done wrong! :-)

I’ve also added a handy search box for Amazon in the side bar of the site that lets you quickly do a search of Amazon’s catalogue.  This box does seem to work OK with Internet Explorer!

Let me know what you think of these new features, I hope you’ll find them useful.  Since we are based in the UK we’ve initially concentrated on integrating with the UK Amazon website, but if there’s enough demand then we might consider adding links for the US site too, as it appears we do have plenty of readers in the States too.
