Add an Amazon Wishlist to your Blog or Site

web

I built a simple tool that lets you create an amazon wishlist blog badge. It generates compliant HTML via some javascript that you can insert into your blog or website template, and style with CSS.

Here's an example:

This is great! You should expand this to do metawishlist.com wishlists as well. That would be grand.

How to Install this? Where I can get this script? I use Wordpress Thanks

Jauhari, You will just need to take the generated HTML code and paste it into your blog template. I don't use wordpress so I can't give you specific instructions.

Pete, It is not working for me. When you click on the link on my site it takes the user to http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/subst/home/home.html/104-1022545-8644707 when the actual url is http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/registry.html/104-0785997-5466304?%5Fencoding=UTF8&type=wishlist&id=3OXVEP176FZIN

Hey Mark, thanks I had a bug in that url it generated for the wishlist. Go and generate the code again. -pete

Thanks Pete, that worked.

This is very cool. However, it does not seem to recognize items that were recently purchased. My wishlist on Amazon has items that were purcahsed, yet they still show up the badge.

Hey this is awesome, and it worked great until I added new items to my wishlist. Now the images don't show up, just the links to you and to the wishlist url on amazon. Any idea why this is? Thanks!

I can't seem to get it working, does the script still work or am I doing something wrong? I punch in my wishlist ID but the code generated gives a blank page.

Since this also stopped working for me and having become tired with amazon wishlists I have since come across http://www.nomorenotebooks.com which lets you create wishlists from any website, something I have been looking for ages. Can there be something similar made for this?
