External content


I am trying to deploy my website in a way where I can link to external products. I want to promote one product on my website by including an external link into my webpage. Amazon offers such links, but somehow these links do not work on my website.

Here is the link from amazon:

I put this link just inside the body tag, amazon link

I only see the placeholder on my webpage, but not the picture itself, do you know why?
Maybe I need to link amazon in the head area somehow, like I did it with css-sheet?
Or GitHub does not allow external images?

Maybe you have an idea?!

Thanks in advance!

sorry, here is the link in html-code

<a href="https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B002P9MM14/ref=as_li_ss_il?ie=UTF8&th=1&linkCode=li2&tag=kat3891-21&linkId=f822c8c4e2efeaf3af4a5bc8985b8f99&language=de_DE" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="//ws-eu.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B002P9MM14&Format=_SL160_&ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=DE&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=kat3891-21&language=de_DE" ></a><img src="https://ir-de.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=kat3891-21&language=de_DE&l=li2&o=3&a=B002P9MM14" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" />type or paste code here

Does it work if you just do it from your computer?

this works here, i don’t get it why this picture is visible here and you can even click on it, but if I do it in my visual studio editor then I cannot see the picture

If you open it locally from your browser it doesn’t work?

exactly, it does not work, I use safari

what I notices, that if I try to open my index.html file via firefox or google chrome then I can´t ´, why?
does it have to do something with the browser employment?
