I’ve just finished putting together a bunch of accessories pages on my new Nexus 7 site and was pleased by how my Simple Amazon Units plugin allowed me to rapidly build products directly into the content.
You can see an example here: Nexus 7 Cases.
The plugin allowed me to place different product types right in amongst the content and I can now leave these pages rest assured that they will continue to update and display the most popular Amazon products based on the keywords I’ve entered along with up to date prices.
I remember producing similar pages for SammyNetbook before I was using this plugin or even WordPress and each page was built manually using Amazon widgets and hard coded friendly URLs mapped through the .htaccess file. That took a couple of weeks to set up and was a nightmare to maintain.
This time it’s taken a couple of hours and will be self-maintaining! If I want to change the layout of the Amazon units its a single update to a template held in the WP admin area, and changing the contents of the unit is a quick tweak to the shortcode.
