    Yes, we know. We are trying to find out what happened with the afiliate program so that when we fix the isbn tag, click-throughs will be credited to the Monastery.

    Note: For a while, this node mistakenly contained some stuff ar0n was working on, which didn't make a lot of sense in the context of this thread.

    I noted this in or die and tutorials. Basically the isbn tag should take you right to the actual product page. But since the B&N take over of fatbrain, it appears the isbn links redirect you to B&N and whatever they're doing to redirect is foobar'ed and just leaving you at B&N front door. Check out ISBN 1565922204 which should take you to Advanced Perl Programming page in B&N's catalog but doesn't.

    Umm.. the isbn:// tag no longer works on which of them? Does it, and did it ever, work on the other? What is this about?

    I'm confused. Can someone provide me with context, please?

    (Ouch) Sorry, had to.
