Just patched it - let me know if that's any better
It’s completely broken today. Now all links to Amazon go to home page instead of just some.

see links in this thread for examples.

Those same ones also now do not open in a new tab/window but take you there from whatever page they're on. I tested some others and they open in a new tab. That's with Firefox. In Edge (old - none chrome version) they open in new tabs but go to the Amazon home page instead. They go to the product page in FF. Very odd...

@DaveF are you using Safari, Firefox or Edge (non-chromium)? Most of the wonky stuff seems to occur in those two.

All the embeds are working for me in Brave, Chrome and Edge Chromium. I will report the issue to the developer.

Dave, your links to Amazon above aren’t working. But from the descriptions, I think I could research those.

Are you using Safari? The forum software doesn't support Safari very well. I've been discussing the Amazon link problems in the feedback forum. I put in the product names in case of that problem.

I’m using chrome on an iPad Pro and the problem with the links is still there.
