    Search amazon.com for furniture
    Hi, I've been trying several things to get the engine to return specific items from a specific category, specifically furniture.

    In going through the demo examples on the site, I can see on the left menu bar that there is a link to the furniture category, and it uses mode=1057794. When I key in a search in the address bar, for example:

    http://www.c3scripts.com/cgi-bin/ae....d=cuckoo+clock

    it will bring back exactly what I expect.

    But when I code the mode=1057794 into my HTML, it won't work.

    Am I missing a release? The latest one I installed was 5.06.18-beta.

    Thanks. Dennis.

    c3scripts.com currently uses v5.06.18-beta which is what you said you're using. The latest is ae.pl v5.08.02-beta

    You didn't specify what "it won't work" means.

    Either post the partial URL without your domain name (e.g.: /cgi-bin/ae.pl?.....) and tell me exactly what you see at that URL on your server, or use the support form and specify your full URL and I'll see it for myself.

    Whoops, sorry about that. In trying to recreate the problem to show you, I figured out how to make it work, I had it coded as type=search, and it brings back only books instead of what I wanted from "mode=1057794", but coding type=browse seems to work just fine.

    Sorry to bother you, and thanks for the help. Should type=search behave that way, though?

    Dennis.

    That's the way it works. The keyword filtering applies to type=browse (or type=bestsellers).
