Hi support.

I know this has been discussed before, but it would be really useful if you could add a fix for Amazon embeds.

As you know, currently the embed just adds a useless Kindle preview, rather than anything useful.

Ideally, this would simply be a thumbnail and link to the Amazon page, that's all. (I guess it's Amazon trying to be too clever!)

These are the links generated by the Amazon affiliate system (for Harry Potter on Kindle) - it would be great if your addon could embed one of these correctly >

Hi @nutritionchat,

Sorry for the late response, we were checking the Amazon embed and unfortunately we cannot implement your suggestion in the addon.

Thanks for looking into this, @kylew 

That's a shame, but I understand there may be technical issues.

Maybe dev for a future addon, exclusively to handle Amazon links ?
