Zazzle links

I know that Zazzle and Wizzley no longer seem to work together, but I have a prominent page here and none of my product links go to the actual product.  They all go to Zazzle's home page.

I can't seem to use the Zazzle module to find any of my products either.

The page is Tropical Christmas Tree Skirts.  

Wizzley used to be a good place to advertise my products, but now it's useless.  The only products with links that work were made long ago.  And the pages can't even be updated with new things.

Please tell me what to do.  I actually sold a lot of skirts last year, but without working links, I will have to delete the page.

Edited:  I am shortening the links using Bitly and they seem to be working.

Personally, I'm clueless about these technical problems. But I'm sure Simon will look into this again. It's been a frustrating experience with Zazzle.


Achim "Chef Keem" Thiemermann is the co-founder of a pretty cool new platform called...um...er...oh, yeah - Wizzley.com.

Thanks Chef, I am sure Simon will sigh when he sees "Zazzle" in the title... 

If the bitly links work, that may be the way to go.  But I have my doubts that they will stick.  

Have a good Sunday, and thanks for the quick reply.

Dustytoes -

1. I am using Zazzle module this way-

Type in a keyword like Halloween for Search Products Name and your Store name holiday_store

OR

2. Used Image module this way -

Upload image

Fill in Title, Name of Source and Source URL ( Bitly link as you suggested)

Thanks for suggesting Bitly.

The Z module is too difficult.  I can't narrow it down to what I want, but I do see that your suggestion works to bring up products, and they don't direct to the German store.

I shortened all my links to use in the images module and they seem to be sticking.  But I had someone else check the links and he said some worked and some did not.  They continue to work for me.

Maybe Bitly is the solution.... fingers crossed.

I use it with entering exact keyword (title of the product) + name of the store. I have to find the product first, of course. Sometimes I have to increase the number of shown products, before I  find the right one. It's not easiest way, but it's manageable. Thanks for suggesting Bitly.

Yep. I too mix and match the titles till I get to show the right product. If you put the exact title, the Zazzle module will show just 1 or more depending upon how many products match the title phrase. And putting your Zazzle store name restricts to your store only.

I will definitely try that when I use the Z module.
