    Question Books By Author
    I'm listing books (single column--basic2 template) & using BrowseNodeSearch & ASIN search & ....

    In ALL of them, I am getting the name of the book & "FROM (the publisher)."

    I tried to change this in the ae.ini and almost messed things up royally!

    Fist: where & how do I change it from "From (publisher's name)" to "By (author's name)

    Second: Is there any way you can change the program so when the search is Books, it automatically lists the author. No one cares who publlishes it! (Well, almost no one).

    Thanks much,

    Linda

    1. Local details pages are generated when you set asinsearch.format to one of the details*.html format templates (e.g.: "details6"). You're using "details1". So edit ae-format/details1.html and find:

    <!--if details.manufacturer-->
    from {details.manufacturer}<BR>
    <!--endif-->

    If you want to say "Publisher:" instead of "from", then change the text "from" to "Publisher:". If you don't want the publisher at all, then remove the above code.

    To show the authors, add:

    <!--if details.authors-->
    by {details.authors}<BR>
    <!--endif-->

    2. Seaches (keyword searches and browse node searches) are formatted in the format.list1.cell formatting code (see formatting library contents). See Format Templates and Formatting Library. You can create a custom formatting library; modify format.list1.cell and replace:

    {if details.manufacturer}from {details.manufacturer}<br>{endif}

    with:

    {if details.authors}by {details.authors}<br>{endif}

    Question Half fixed!
    I have gone through EVERY "detail" and deleted the <!--if details.manufacturer-->from {details.manufacturer}<BR><!--endif-->AND added <!--if details.authors-->by {details.authors}<BR><!--endif--> (if needed).

    ditto with EVERY "list"

    In library.fmt I deleted {if details.manufacturer}from {details.manufacturer}<br>{endif}

    and added {if details.authors}by {details.authors}<br>{endif}

    I have gone through ae.ini and verified I'm using detail1 and library.

    Then I went directly to http://mywebsite/cgi-bin/ae.pl (not using browse nodes or asinsearch).

    THE GOOD NEWS: The manufacturer is gone.

    THE BAD NEWS: The author is not there.

    What now?
