    Hi,
    Is there an easy way to style amazon links on WordPress (self-hosted) like it is done on HubPages? Like pretty, horizontal etc.

    No, I'm talking about the style of the ads.

    Can you show an example of the ad you are talking about?

    the amazon ads are really annoying.. The picture and font is always way to small, I'd be happy if there's a good solution to change the size of the font/image but still keep the updating prices feature..

    I think i know what you need: Amazon Simple Admin.

    Using this on several of my Amazon sites. Seriously, this is my money maker.
    No, i am not affiliated with them. Just showing some support.

    Of course! Here is how Amazon's ads look when you pull 'em right off their website:

    And this is how they are showed/styled at HubPages:

    It is not easy to find a plugin that does that...

    Exactly!

    Thanks for your suggestion! It is something like that I'm looking for. I just don't like the layout of the ads produced by Amazon Simple Admin.

    Try http://crazygoodtools.com. You can style the ads however you want. I first bought it to mimic the hubpages layout. You could also do it manually with html tables. If you want one that updates the results automatically - like how you put in a keyword in hubpages instead of picking out each product - try http://adsplugin.net/. You can modify the layout to do the same thing.
