    In the older version of amazon.pl, somehow, It was possible to return a list of categories when browsing books or music. I'm having a massive brain block as to why when I browse music on the new version of amazon.pl, it will return items instead of returning the list of musical categories.

    Please help.
    THanks

    To display the browse index of the Music section, use type=browse&mode=music such as in the following URL:

    http://www.bime.com/cgi-bin/amazon.p...wse&mode=music

    To display a list of the topselling items of the Music section, use type=best&mode=music such as in the following URL:

    http://www.bime.com/cgi-bin/amazon.p...est&mode=music

    Hi David,

    When access the file using:
    amazon.pl?type=browse&mode=music

    I get redirected to:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/su...667336-5076801

    So am I missing a template or config variable?

    Please provide a sample URL showing the problem. Also, upgrade to the latest version of amazon.pl XML if you're using an older version. Current version is v2.12.28

    Hey David,

    Just giving you a follow-up to what my problem was. My Windows with Apache was causing strange results with browsing the categories.

    As soon as I uploaded everything to my regular web server with Linux/Apache and having the permissions set properly; everything started working as far as the browse category issue.

    I was having problems with viewing the asindetails even though I had the variable set in amazon.ini. I forgot one thing...my amazon.key. D'OH! After uploading that, it was like butter!

    Thanks for your excellent attention. BTW, I have a CJ account and was wondering what extra's you have? I remember seeing that you were working on a CJ store script?

    Thanks for the kick-a** scripts!
