Re: Useful Tips.

Here are a few of the .CSS files that my code references. Note: this is not a comprehensive list. I started with AOM's default code and manipulated it as shopping.css . I've tried to put all .CSS elements unique to AOM inside shopping.css . Because I wanted to achieve a blending effect with my overa...

Re: Useful Tips.

Putting AOM in a sub-directory I use .htaccess to control all my AOM installations. I have an AOM installation per Amazon Geo-Location, and I put each store in its own folder named for the geo-location that it serves. For example, all of my AOM installations are in the following folders: /shop/cana...

Re: AOM Developer API

I'm trying to pull the current category name and the current subcategory name (if available) using this. I cannot figure out how to pull this information from the $page array ... mainly because the category name is in another array within the $page array, and I'm an idiot and cannot pull the value. ...

Re: Account limit of 2175 requests per hour exceeded.

If you do that make sure you do a header status of 503 - Service Unavailable . See article " HTTP Status Codes Explained " header('HTTP/1.1 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable'); header('Status: 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable'); header('Retry-After: 7200'); // in seconds In addition, I believe ...

Re: Account limit of 2175 requests per hour exceeded.

I just send an email to Amazon: "Account limit of 2139 requests per hour exceeded." Having access to the API is paramount; this is a service that I would be willing to pay for (even though I'm an associate). It is possible that search engine "bots" are using all API resources. In addition, new Amazo...

Re: AOM JP, FR, DE [English Admin Menus]

Also, dunno if this is possible, but rather than "hard-coding" the node #'s into AOM, (i.e., selecting the node name of "Electronics") it'd be nice to be able to type in our own node numbers according to the list at http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSECommerceService/latest/DG/index.html?BrowseNod...

I think it'd be nice to list the shopping categories for these different languages in English (according to the names given on http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSECommerceService/latest/DG/index.html?BrowseNodeIDs.html). Now of course, when customers browse the AOM store, they'll see everything in...

Seems the API has been update to October, and Amazon has added two mode nodes to it: Merchants and Miscellaneous.

Re: Amazon Italy!!

How cool is that! I was just wondering if AOM will create a software for Amazon Italy in the future.! :) I'm sure it'll happen one day. It depends if Amazon makes available the API for Italy (and China). And even then, it'll be a while after that happens. You can get an idea as to the timeframe it ...

If you're in the same boat as me, you can't read the Japanese characters.
