Display View of Amazon Associates Plugin for Mango Blog

It has a two-fold display: at the beginning it displays left aligned the Amazon Link widget with your Amazon Associates id added to the link URL, pulls cover and current pricing from Amazon as well as the layout of this section. 

Below the body of the post or page, it also displays a simple link. 

A live version of this plugin is working on this page:

It also used the IDXEmbedly Plugin that turns the link on the bottom of the post/page into a nice Amazon display.

IDXAmazon and IDXEmbedly work nicely together
