Topic Wiki

UPDATE:
@JoeyShmoe did a great job creating a Chrome Extension and a Firefox Extension to save us all the hassle of setting up a bookmarklet. The extension will place a button on any Amazon product page. When you click the button it will copy a link to your clipboard, which you can paste into any DDF post. The post will then contain the product title, image, and a working link to the product.

Thanks @JoeyShmoe!

NEW OPTION!
Works on mobile or desktop

For anyone who doesn't want to install a browser extension, read below how to set up the bookmarklet:

Here is a bookmarklet that will make a DD link from any amazon item page, and format it with the title and an image so you can paste it into a DDF post.

Example:

Little Tikes Rocking Horse Magenta ($34.07)



(Not sure what a bookmarklet is? Read more about them in this thread: http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=61269.5.)

Here's how to install the bookmarklet:

1. If you don't currently see a row of bookmarks on the top of your browser, you will need to show the bookmarks bar.
- In Chrome, click the 3 vertical dots at the top right of your screen, click Settings, and click Always Show the Bookmarks Bar.
- In Firefox, click the 3 horizontal lines at the top right of your screen, and click Customize. Then click Show/Hide Toolbars (bottom left of your screen) and check off the Bookmarks Toolbar.

2. Copy the following code. (To do so, click the SELECT button and then press control-c on your keyboard.)
Code: [Select]
javascript: (function() {
    var pattern = new RegExp("(https:\/\/www.amazon.com\/).*([dg]p\/)(?:product\/)?(..........).*|(https:\/\/smile.amazon.com\/).*([dg]p\/)(?:product\/)?(..........).*", "i"),
        match = location.href.match(pattern),
        image = document.getElementById('landingImage').src;
    var price = "";
    if (document.getElementById('priceblock_dealprice') !== null) {
        price = " (" + document.getElementById('priceblock_dealprice').innerHTML + ")";
    } else if (document.getElementById('priceblock_ourprice') !== null) {
        price = " (" + document.getElementById('priceblock_ourprice').innerHTML + ")";
    }
    var URL = (match[1] !== undefined) ? match[1] + "dp/" + match[3] + "/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER" : match[4] + "dp/" + match[6] + "/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER";
    var result = "[url=" + URL + "]" + document.title + price + "[/url][br][br][url=" + URL + "][img]" + image + "[/img][/url]";
    if (document.execCommand('copy') !== false) {
        var ddLink = document.createElement('span'),
            range = document.createRange();
        ddLink.id = "ddLink";
        ddLink.innerText = result;
        document.body.appendChild(ddLink);
        range.selectNode(document.getElementById('ddLink'));
        window.getSelection().addRange(range);
        document.execCommand('copy');
        document.getElementById('ddLink').remove();
        setTimeout(function() {
            alert('DD link copied to clipboard...')
        }, 1000);
    } else {
        window.prompt("Press control-c", result);
    }
    void(0);
})()

3. To create the bookmarklet, right click on your bookmarks bar and click "Add page" (if you're in Chrome) or "New bookmark" (Firefox).

For the Name, enter whatever you want (eg: Dan Amazon link), and for the URL/Location enter the code above, which you already copied.

4. Click Save (Chrome) or Add (Firefox)

To use the bookmarklet, simply click on the bookmark you created (in step 3) when you are on any amazon product page. Follow the prompts (you may need to press control-c to copy what pops up), and then paste it into any DDF post.

Enjoy!

Disclaimer: The code might need a little tweaking, so let me know if you have a link that it doesn't work on. If there are any changes I will update the wiki.

@Dan would you be interested in implementing such a thing?
Yes, lets send that to the website development team, so that they can create a subpanel of dedicated DDF employees to develop the code for this feature.

Let the budget department get us some numbers on project cost vs. projected income, so that we can present it at the shareholders meeting next week.

And don't forget to contact someone at counsels office to find out about the protectability of this from copycats.

Anything else @Yo ssi:P

I nominate Yo ssi as the most talented DDFer. Aside from his ability to code and write megillos, he can do complex coding, budget, and legal as well.

His last deal (for frosting) notes that it's 20% off and it's with S&S, and it lists the actual sale price. That is an updated feature, no?

He manually edited that.

Possible upcoming feature may be an easy-to-copy title for the subject line. The issue is the average products title is too long :-\

Indeed, but how can you automate that? It usually takes a human brain to decide which snippets of info are important for the thread title...

Cool, nice job here.
 Is it really worth downloading telegram to post the DDF Amazon link? How does it work ? Send the Asin and spitz out a link to post?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
