What happened to the ASIN generation page? I used to use it regularly when I was sending/posting links for Amazon stuff so that they'd use the GTZ link to order...

I'm unsure what you're talking about (maybe I'm forgetting?). There is something in the NT tools that will take an amazon link and extract just the ASIN from it. It's used on item pages to help assign the correct asin to the item. But, you have to click around a bit to get to it.

Generally speaking, the site will put gametz's affiliate code into any amazon link that gets posted automatically. So, you can just not worry about it.

This page:

https://gametz.com/asin.html

It used to allow you to just put in an ASIN and it would spit out the link with the GTZ Amazon affiliate code. Made it really easy to give links to people with it included. yes

I have no recollection of that page.

There's also the {asin} markup, e.g.

{asin}059035342X Harry Potter{asin} = Harry Potter

That generates the link for you.

Ok, well, the page existed as recently as a month or two ago. I use it all the time.

Posting in the forums to generate the link doesn't work for me. It was just an easy way to quickly generate a link that I could send to clients so that it would count towards GTZ. But, if it is gone, then I'll just stop doing that. Did no benefit to me -- only you. *shrug*

I guess I must have deleted it thinking it was some old junk. I vaguely recall deleting other junk files in the server's root. It sounds like it was a standalone page that probably only you was using. Maybe, I made it 10+ years ago and just forgot about it.

I'll try to find it in a backup.

It was pretty simple. You just pasted in the ASIN and it spit out a link to Amazon for that item with the GTZ affiliate stuff.

I can try to recreate it if I can't find it in backups. I'm working on restoring a backup from feb now.

Thanks! Again, not a big deal, but I do use it sometimes -- it is an easy way to send your affiliate link to others. smile
