A few days ago, some of us saw to our dismay how the amazon associates box at the right of our blogger post interface became blank, stopped working. I thought I messed something up, and I couldn't see many with the same problem, though some spoke of the same or similar problems as a result of the new interface. We all know changes can bring temporal problems, but many times we are unaware and believe it's something we did and drive ourselves a bit crazy trying to solve something it's way beyond our ability to fix.
After searching yesterday, I realized that it wasn't a few but many who were having the same problem. There is a new updated Blogger interface I checked and that has not the amazon associates product search box in it, so I quickly came back to the old blogger interface, but the box still is blank.
There is still a way to add products from your amazon associates account, typing the product and getting the links, and pasting them in your post, which is time consuming and painful after becoming spoiled by their convenient product box.
But today at the blogger forums, a lady wrote that she had called Amazon, and they told her they are aware of this and the problem will be fixed by the end of today most likely. This is Amazon's phone number she also gave us, 800-372-8066, in case you want to call yourself.
