The SMF documentation leaves a bit to be desired. Or, I just haven't found the right place.

Probably both.

Hey, Timothy, thanks so much for setting this whole place up!


So... I deleted the KB affiliate links from my signature, however, someone mentioned that if the affiliate tags aren't replaced then KB will still get the affiliate $ which makes me less than pleased. I would much rather that $ go to you. Would you be able to share a version of your affiliate link that we can tag into that code? I would much rather say thanks to you with a bit $ every time someone clicks on my books here than have that money go to VS or anyone else really.

OK just checking - if I wanted to add Tim's affiliate link to my book links, how would the URL look?


http://amazon.com/ASIN/?tag=cirofatl-20


Is that correct?

You have some bits missing there.

Thanks, Masha, but this is what is in the box on the Profile page:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://amazon.com/dp/B0084MZWPO/?tag=cirofatl-20][https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51aF8VZqJCL._SL110_jpg[/img][/url]I donít understand why it is showing only part of it.

ETA Dammit - and when I copy and paste itís still only showing half of it in the message.


Added Code tags. t.

The reason it's only showing some of it in the forum message here is because the forum software is actually hiding some of it :)  If you want all of it to show, you need to put a
Code: [Select]
[code]    before it and a [/code]after it.


Let me see if I can fix it for you...

Whoops!
You're right about the different heights :)  And there was also a missing "." before the "jpg" at the end of the image link. That might be the problem. It should look like this:

Iíve copied and pasted that into the sig box and my profile has ďupdated successfullyĒ, but Iím still getting nothing.

This is way beyond what my aged brain (and my comfort zone)can handle, so Iím going to leave it for now.

Thanks for your efforts - much appreciated.

The code below will make one book appear in your signature. (Taken from my post on other page.)
Red is where you put your ASIN and IMG link.
You also have to change these ( ) to these [ ].


(table)(tr)(td)(url=https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H5QYKXJ/?tag=cirofatl-20)(img height=125]https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41qHDOAEutL._SL125_.jpg(/img)(/url)(/td)(/tr)(/table)


Here is the code to make all three of my books appear...note where I ended with the /tr and /table. Each colour is a different book.


(table)(tr)(td)(url=https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H5QYKXJ/?tag=cirofatl-20)(img height=125]https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41qHDOAEutL._SL125_.jpg(/img)(/url)(/td)(td)(url=https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MTEK4B1/?tag=cirofatl-20)(img height=125]https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41sn8d6yWfL._SL125_.jpg(/img)(/url)(/td)(td)(url=https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01A7I010S/?tag=cirofatl-20][img height=125)https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/516k3edVtYL._SL125_.jpg(/img)(/url)(/td)(/tr)(/table)


Hope that helps.

This works as you can see from the result - it will do exactly the same when ypu put it in your signature


This doesn't and I'm not sure you need to put tables in because it only needs a space between each url address to pad them out in a line. If you put carriage returns in it will drop them one below the other. Which might be why you chose a table to put them in.

I tried the way many others found worked for them but it didn't work for me (see previous posts), so in the end the way to make it work, thanks to those who gave me the code, was what I've posted.
I thought it worth posting as it might help others with the problem I had. 
I notice the book you posted was smaller than the others in your sig, I assume that is the 110 height used?

I don't know how we can all be on the same forum and code works for some and others not? A conundrum. I have a separate post for Signatures for those who are wide, the code on there is simple - and works. I'm wondering if the issue is nothing to do with the forum, but browser or Os-based in terms of copy/paste feature. Gerri seems to know what to copy, but the pate function appears to not take everything.

I just wish there was a way I could step in and take a look, but these systems don't allow for that. Ho Hum!

Gerry, you need to put a space between img and height. So it should look like this:
Code: [Select]
[img height=125]

Not sure if that will fix it, but it's definitely one problem.

Ah ha! I did wonder, but all the examples show the img and height on different lines, so it was hard to judge.

I am obviously just too old or stupid to make any of this work for me.  Timothy says go to book sale site and right click for save location? No such thing when I right click. I feel so...antiquated right now...obsolete...sigh...Going naked for the foreseeable future.


You're not the only one.  :icon_think:  That's OK, I'll deal with this sometime in the future when I have time to sort it out. Mostly, code makes my eyes glaze over.  :icon_eek:

I've tried repeatedly and it's not working for me, either. I copied the exact code from one of the many versions (there are 3 pages to this thread now, it's a little hard to know which one is the correct one) cited above, but no luck. A tutorial for us idiots might help?
