I was wondering how do they show that Amazon product as an image on the sidebar?

Is it some plugin? Or simply a fixed image with an affiliate link? If yes, is it allowed by Amazon?

I think it's a great way to make a visitor click on the affiliate link.

Looks like custom ad to me. The image src is from their own cdn.. so it is impossible that they are using widget from amazon affiliate. As for being a plugin, it is not. It's just fixed text (notice the sidebar widget wrapper, it says div class=textwidget). It is totally okay to use a fixed image with link AFAIK.

Edit: The interesting bit is that how they change that ad for every page. They might well be using a custom ad rotator plugin of some sort (something which has shortcode), and then placing the shortcode into a text widget in the sidebar.

Thanks for the input.

P.S: No one is being obsessed with it, i try to appreciate things that are worth it.

Thanks for the info, i saw it from my phone so didn't check the source.

I guess you've to use API to retrieve the image from Amazon, i guess it's some custom code that's working, though I'm not sure.

Yea there's a plugin for enabling widgets for a particular page, widget logics can do the same as seoz87 mentioned.
