    I wonder if anyone has any insight into this problem....

    I received an email from the author of a DVD complaining that I only had customer reveiws and no description.

    I did a search for this item on google and found many other sites with no description either, so I'm thinking perhaps it's an issue with the data received from amazon?

    TIA!!

    What is the ASIN of that product? Note that not all amazon.com products have descriptions.

    If your AE details formatting template (e.g.: ae-format/details6.html) is an older version that does not contain "Editorial Review", then update your details formatting template.

    Hi David, I think it might be one that doesn't have a description.... B00006371P

    I upgraded to the latest template and it does at least show those that offer it

    Thanks!!

    That product does not currently have an Editorial Review (at least, AWS does not provide one). If you view http://www.c3scripts.com/cgi-bin/ae....00006371P&data you'll see no <ProductDescription> field in the XML.

    If you want, you can include a custom review written by you (or from the author of that DVD). To do that, save the review to ae-include/b00006371p.html (note that the filename is all lowercase) then in your details template file (e.g.: ae-format/details6.html), add <!--includeASIN--> where you want your custom review to be included. For example, in details6.html change:

    <!--endif-->
    <!--if details.reviews-->

    to

    <!--endif-->
    <!--includeASIN-->
    <!--if details.reviews-->

    This will cause your custom review to appear between the "Editorial Review" and "Customer Reviews".

    The <!--includeASIN--> command causes the file ae-include/ASIN.html to be included where ASIN is the ASIN number in lowercase. If no such file exists for the current ASIN, nothing (i.e.: empty) is inserted and processing continues.
