Why don't Amazon links work on this forum? Well the link takes you too Amazon but links to specific items don't work. This is the only forum that I belong too where they do not work, it seems silly too me.

It works on my iMac. It's been a while since I've seen a link to try, but I can't recall an Amazon link not working on the forum.

I use Firefox also and cannot see the pictures on Amazon links. I also run a pop up blocker that gets rid of ads. If I Iook at this site thru IE, I can see links. I'll keep using Firefox.

Works for me too, on both W 10 desktop and iPad. I'm not too knowledgeable about these things, but I'd suggest reaching out to one of the staff members to ask if there are settings you can change to address the issue...either on your devices or in your forum settings.

With Firefox I can't see Amazon ads at all. I can see them with Edge and Brave. I brought it up in the "Bugs,Glitches' sub and Hellasteph said "
"If you're a SMF premier member, Amazon links may be mistaken as ads that we don't show you but it's not detecting it as a link, it thinks it's an ad. I'll look into this."

It looks like its not just premier members having a problem with it though.

I am working with a S10 plus on chrome. The Amazon links technically work for me, but they look very poor.

Copy and pasting them.
It appears to be on my end, but I can't figure out how that could be seeing that it does the same thing on my phone and my lap top.....weird.
