When I try to install it with Install&Upgrade from ChrisD I get this error:

Code:
Callback Andy_AmazonParser_Listener::post ist ungültig (Ungültige Klasse).

I noticed from previous installations from AndyBs Add-Ons, that the files are not copied to the right folder when uploading them via ftp.

Hello Andy,
I just tried to run your parser and the parser got stuck. You wrote:
If for any reason the same post number continues to show, this means the add-on was not able to convert the link. There can be several reasons for example:
  1. The URL is not properly formed, it may contain other BB Codes as an example.
is there any way to find out in which post the malformed URL is hidden? Could you add an error message that tells the admin which post is the one that blocks the parser?

thank you - all the best,
Sacha

Hello Andy,
thank you very much again for the good support. I found the wrong links. They looked something like:
Code:
http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00RQOJI7E/ref=cm_cd_asin_lnk
I entered the book title in the Amazon search and now the detail page had an URL like this:
Code:
http://www.amazon.de/Vergiss-wer-warst-charlotte-enders-ebook/dp/B00RQOJI7E/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1424016253&sr=1-1
then I read this article here:
http://www.newselfpublishing.com/AmazonLinking.html
and used the Amazon Link checker:
https://partnernet.amazon.de/gp/associates/network/tools/link-checker/main.html (this is the link-checker for the german Amazon Partnernet, I don`t know the URL for the international/US site)
and reduced the links to:
http://www.amazon.de/dp/B00RQOJI7E/
So the format that works well is:
http://www.amazon.de/dp/ASIN/?tag=yourpartner-id

You could also do an automatic search and replace to change the wrong links from:
Code:
http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00M8TNO3Q/ref=cm_cd_asin_lnk
to
Code:
http://www.amazon.de/dp/B00M8TNO3Q/ref=cm_cd_asin_lnk

In my case I used phpMyAdmin to run this SQL query:

UPDATE`xf_post`
SET `message` = replace(message,'www.amazon.de/gp/product','www.amazon.de/dp')

and fixed all links automatically. Please be very careful with this and test it on a single posting first by limiting the query with a WHERE clause:

UPDATE`xf_post`
SET`message`= replace(message,'www.amazon.de/gp/product','www.amazon.de/dp')
WHERE `post_id` = 1111111

all the best,
Sacha

Hi @AndyB

Amazon product links can have either /dp/ or /gp/ in the URL. Can you update the parser to also work on /gp/ products please?

Thank you! :)

Hello Andy,
Thank you for your very useful parser add-ons !!
I have a problem with this one, which does not transform any amazon links.
Amazon Parser works perfectly, links are changed when I modify the message and save it. But the same message is not changed when I used Amazon parser all.
Did I miss something ?
Thanks a lot

Parser All is to update old links. Parser fixes new links moving forward :) So you just run Parser All once and don't need to again.

Im having the same issue. If i edit each post one by one the links change because of (amazon_parser) but if i run amazon parser all, nothing happens. I hate to have to manually update 2400 posts =(

Any idea what the issue could be @AndyB

Doesb;t matter who I upload your plugins, they always fail I'm afraid


Looked into this a bit more. I have one or two of your addons so already have the 'Andy' folder. What I wasn't doing was looking in the 'library' folder which had the addon, hence the confusing after downloading.
