    I just downloaded and tried out your product. Everything is looking great except for one problem. We have lists of books that we display. Sometimes the list is >= 10 books. From what I've seen so far, if the number is < 10 then all will display properly. For example, this set of 9 asin's shows 9 in the list when amazon.pl is run:

    amazon.pl?asinsearch=0679720197,0192890956,0684827905,0691027641,0671510991,0029227917,0160019125,0140444270,0891415637

    However, this set of 11 asin's shows 25 in the list -- it repeats the 11 over and over:

    asinsearch=0679720197,0192890956,0684827905,0691027641,0671510991,0029227917,0160019125,0140444270,0891415637,0521637600,0700605606

    Why does that happen and what can I do about it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Warren

    The repitition in the results is due to a bug in amazon.pl XML v2.12.28. Also Amazon.com's Web Services (AWS) is limited to 10 ASIN's in normal mode and to 30 ASIN's in "lite" mode.

    If using amazon.pl XML v2.12.28: The work-around is to specify at most 9 ASIN's in an asinsearch. If you add the lite parameter, then you can specify up to 29 ASIN's (using 30 would cause repitition of results). Note: In lite mode, AWS does not provide as much information such as customer reviews. Such as:

    /cgi-bin/amazon.pl?lite&asinsearch=...

    We plan on fixing this bug in a future release of amazon.pl XML so that results are not repeated.
