Technical issues: Amazon module and others

Could Chef or Simon please look at fixing a few technical things on Wizzley? This place still means a lot to many of us, but it's slowly falling apart in more ways than one.

I'd be happy to write more pages, and I'm sure others would as well (and several Wizzleyans still are), even as they/we may not make much on Wizzley or sites like it anymore, but it would be nice if we could at least make something through Amazon or eBay.

Many thanks!

What specific problem is going on right now? I was actually just checking in to update some pages and potentially add some new ones, but I don't want to waste my time if there are serious issues with important modules and the site isn't being actively maintained at all.

Hi Nicole,

The Amazon and eBay modules are not working at the moment. Frank and BSG have been using Zazzle instead, but I prefer Amazon myself.

Frank tried to contact Chef but the email he had was obsolete. Obviously someone still pays something for this site to stay online. I hope they'll also continue to fix technical issues now and then. I don't believe we're asking for much.

I still find very many things of interest on this site and feel the community here is of great value.

Not working at all, or not working if adding new modules?

I see an Amazon sale attached to my wizzley id from July 22 according to my Associates Account...not much but I am seeing clicks and sales being recorded. That's why I'm confused....Zazzle would certainly not be an option for most of the type of products I have listed on my pages.

I believe, or at least it was when I first encountered the problems, old modules still work.  Adding new ones does not.  In addition to Zazzle I use article lists to older articles on similar topics, and I use Viglink text links, especially for amazon.  The ads still work.  Hope this helps.  Your articles should be fine, but you cannot update the products, or so I have read.

Simon did respond to the forum post on Amazon that started 3/21.  The post on ebay was added by me 27 days ago.  The indication was Amazon had the issue, but both issues are very similar,  I have been patient since any fixing of an issue during the virus can cause delays.

Right, BSG, there's this virus too. And then we don't know what they may be going through on their side of the tracks because of it. Hopefully we'll all be able to continue this (beautiful) project.

Sorry if I was harsh earlier. After all, Chef and Simon do not really have any obligation to us. It's probably the case that we're all doing the best we can, given the circumstances.

Yes it's definitely been a rough few months. I've actually had to work straight through it - overtime hours no less, since March, since I'm in health care and other people in our office couldn't/still won't come in because they have higher risk factors. Very stressful - especially as I have close family in Northern Italy I'd just visited before this all started up! (Fortunately no one got sick.)

Yes, modules are not working for several months now and it would be nice to get at least some feedback from people who maintain the site. It would be very sad if it goes down like Zujava, InfoBarrel (not to mention Squidoo) and other similar projects. What is going on with Wizzley?

Hi Nicole, Tolovaj,

It's certainly been difficult. I'm tired not only of working a lot without going out much (I just fell into a rut like this; feel too tired to go out at the moment!?), but also of disinfecting and cooking. I used to eat out with friends now and then and also buy snacks in the city. Now all three of us are eating at home all the time, so myself and friends have quite a lot of cooking to do :)

But yes, working overtime in these times and working in health care must be very stressful.

Tolovaj, I don't know what to make of the silence either but hopefully things will get sorted out for the better.
