How-to customize the output

Using a custom title

[amazon box="ASIN" title="My product name"]

Using a custom description

[amazon box="ASIN" description="My description text"]
Tip: Alternatively you can use a custom HTML description e.g. building your own lists. Therefore place the shortcode – according to the following example – before and after your content.
[amazon box="ASIN"]My custom description including HTML or not.[/amazon]

Using a custom button text

[amazon box="ASIN" button_text="My text"]
[amazon box="ASIN" link_title="My SEO link title" /]

Adding another (detail) button

You can display an extra button inside a product box. This can be very useful e.g. when referencing to an internal/external link which contains a test report of the product:

[amazon box="ASIN" button_detail="http://domain.com/test-XYZ/"]

Overview of all available detail button attributes

Attribute Description
button_detail Target (URL or Post ID)
button_detail_text Button text (overwrites plugin settings)
button_detail_target HTML link target, e.g. “_blank”
Standard = same window/tab
The design of the detail button can be setup via the settings page.

The shortcodes above can be extended by adding further "attributes". We prepared an overview of all shortcodes and adjustments for the Amazon Affiliate WordPress plugin.
