Amazon Carousel Widget For WordPress Blogs

If you are an affiliate for Amazon, then you are probably familiar with their widget section.

Like the aStore, slide shows, and special deal widgets, Amazon now offers a new one I really like. It’s called the carousel, and like it’s name-sake, it places photo’s of your *products* in a 3D round and round that the visitor controls.

When I came across this fun little widget on someones site, I immediately wanted one for my main blog.

Fortunately, I knew the person who had the blog it appeared on so I gave her a call to learn more about it. We got together on Skype and together went to find and create one for me. I recorded the process to find, select the products and put it on my blog.

This isn’t like one of my regular video’s, all planned out and the process defined before I record but it does show every step. You can hear her in the background and I am talking with her during this video, but I think you will enjoy it.

This is the *widget* we created during the session. If you want one, follow the steps in this video to go make your own.

  1. Thank you so much for this post. I use the reviewazon plugin. Reviewazon is the easy and simple way to add amazon affiliate product to your website.

  2. I had noted a statement on the Amzon Affiliate page for the widget which indicated that there is a difference between a WordPress.com and WordPress.org site.

    What are the differences relative to adding the carousel to my blog. Do I need to have a .org site, and if I do what does making the change involve, and how do I go about it?

    Thank you,

    Jon

  8. Hi
    Thanks for a great video, cleared up a couple of things for me.
    I am very new to WordPress but learning as I go along. I have a WordPress blog with a review theme installed that I want to use to sell Amazon products. I have created 7 review posts and installed all the necessary plug-ins etc. I am wanting to put an Amazon carousel on the main page. I have the HTML etc but have no idea how to insert the code so that it shows on the main page above all the items for sale. I can insert the code using the HTML button in a post and it shows up OK. I would be very grateful if someone could help me? This is probably a simple thing to do but remember I am a total newbie.

  9. For this to work, you are going to have to edit the theme template files. I can’t direct you specifically, since all themes use different files and tags, but basically you will need to find the page that displays the home page… index, home, main or something similar.

    Then locate the section that is just above the posts. It will probably be a “while have posts” loop.

    You can get to these at Dashboard | Appearance | Editor. It might make more sense for you to outsource this since these are the files used to display your blog. One mis-step here could break your blog.
