    On the scrounge Can anyone send me an example page that uses the amzon API to return some books? I can read the help but it would be handy to have a template i can use for my own devices.

    Not really sure how this works - i'm hoping a page is self contained?

    thanks in advance

    There are loads of PHP template sites out there as Admin says PHP is really easy not much different from html and similar to visual basic

    i've been waiting for someone to say that!

    i really have been avoiding learning that really even to the point on paying the extra for ASP hosting. :D

    i should really give it a go if i dont find an ASP solution i will be frequenting this area more often!

    hi Charlie,

    php is a dodle, and quite a few pros are building many of their sites in php and mysql.

    i will see if i can find what books they use.

    if you dont fancy doing the work yourself and want someone to do it for you i know a few people i can put you in touch with.

    or if you do want to give it a go then along with admin i am happy to help out.

    I'll wash my mouth with wine, your turn to buy!!

    As far as my knowledge takes me the principles are the same especially with database websites (mathematical principles)

    is it normal for these amazon scripts to have a database that you have to add products manually from?

    i have found a free asp script but it has an admin panel where you add products manually.

    No they should offer the whole Amazon product database or have options to limit to subsections
