    Here's the Amazon page I'm trying to use with Amazon.pl. It's the top selling DVDs. I can't figure out how to put this list on my site. Any suggestions?

    Well, I've been doing some experimenting. I came up with two ways of doing this but neither one returns the same results as the Amazon page (which has My Big Fat Greek Wedding as #1). Close, but not perfect.

    This one uses David's tip of leaving the keyword empty:

    &lt;script TYPE="text/JavaScript" SRC="http://www.totalhits.com/cgi-bin/amazon.pl?script&type=search&mode=dvd&keyword=&grid=c:3,r:3,p,m,u,b,if"></SCRIPT>

    This one uses the "salesrank" parameter, but the results don't match Amazon:

    &lt;script TYPE="text/JavaScript" SRC="http://www.totalhits.com/cgi-bin/amazon.pl?scripttype=browse&mode=163306&grid=c:3,r:3,p,m,u,b,if&sort=+salesrank"></SCRIPT>

    Note: I normally make these Include pages but for this application I need to use javascript so I can use the horsepower of another site to generate the results.

    That http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...-sellers/-/dvd page is not available through Amazon.com Web Services (AWS) since it is not a browse page (i.e.: a URL containing "/browse/-/NUMBER/").

    But there is a browse page that does show something similar to what you want. Try something like one of these URL's instead:

    <UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>http://www.bime.com/cgi-bin/amazon.p...=best&mode=dvd

    <LI>http://www.bime.com/cgi-bin/amazon.p...ort=+salesrank

    <LI>http://www.bime.com/cgi-bin/amazon.p...h=130&mode=dvd

    <LI>http://www.bime.com/cgi-bin/amazon.p...ort=+salesrank[/list]Browse page 130 (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/browse/-/130/) is the DVD "home page" at amazon.com. The first two bulleted links above are equivalent to the last two links (i.e.: type=best&mode=dvd accesses browse page 130), except that the {title} and {navbar} values are slightly different.
