amazon affiliate code / how to embed the amazon-code in the forum?

I just signed up for Amazon.com Affiliate Program.

I tried to enter the Amaton HTML-Code (for image) into one of my Forum-posts, but it just shows the pure HTML-code instead of the picture of the book.

How do I properly insert the HTML of Amazon, so that it will show up within my forum-post as an image?

So I need to save the image from Amazon and enter it into my post, then link the image via the affiliate-link......

not very handy...... strange this does not work without an add-on.....

HTML in posts doesn't work without an add-on.

I have no idea how the Amazon affiliate program works.

they just give you a HTML-code which includes the link to the URL and to the image.
So when amazon updates the image it will get updted at your website as well.

just like the HTML-code FB is using with their iframe.

But pasting the HTML into the forum-post shows the HTML as code instead of the link and image......

What is the exact code? If it's just a hyperlinked image then you can recreate that with BB code:

[url=http://www.hyperlink.com/][img]http://www.blah.com/image.gif[/img][/url]
