New Amazon Ad code and Custom Comcode

Amazon has removed all support for their "older" style ads, a style that has worked great for me in Custom Comcode. But I cannot make the new Amazon ad code work in Custom Comcode. For one thing, it repeats the item number twice. I put {Content} in both places, but it does not work. I can put the entire code everywhere I need it, but I much prefer to use the simpler Custom Comcode tags if they will work.

Hi,

If you share expected output, a screenshot of your custom comcode tag edit screen, and actual output (HTML source), we may be able to help :).

Chris,

Here is the Amazon code: As you can see, the book number - 1479213268 - is repeated twice, one right after the other. Before, I just put their iframe code into the Custom Comcast box, replaced the one time the number appeared with a {Content} and it worked great. The same thing doesn't work now; however, when I put this entire code into the "source" feature of the WYSIWYG editor in the sidebar where I want it, it works fine. I can do that, if needs be.

<iframe style="width:120px;height:240px;" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" src="//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ss&ref=ss_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=yguaca-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=1479213268&asins=1479213268&linkId=U4W565UYNN6RDK6U&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true">
</iframe>

hi,

I need to see all the above details I mentioned, particularly the screenshot of your custom Comcode tag settings so I can debug it.
