    You have to make sure you are adding the "parent" product.

    Each variation has a unique ASIN and the "parent" product has a unique ASIN. If you add the parent ASIN it will group together all the variations (and add any missing ones) into the one page like the example I posted.

    Unfortunately for some reason Amazon don't indicate via the API that any given product is a variation. Therefore if you add the ASIN of a variation, there is no way to tell that it has "brothers and sisters" and a "parent product" until you add the "parent product" itself.

    It is a slightly tricky concept to understand but to make you add the ASIN that appears on the Amazon product page (not in the URL). Products automatically added via a search or browse node *should* be parents only.

    Not finished but its coming along.

    For some reason the products aren't working - When you select a size the colour drop down doesn't have any options in it.

    Might be related to permissions (the security on my server is set very high)

    Edit: Seems like the entire ajax folder is missing - not so good!

    What is the product? Some products are not created as "parent -> child" products on Amazon, so they list seperately. Try adding the ASIN that shows on the actual page, or let me know the product and I will check it out.

    I've been waiting a week for forum activation and still awaiting a response to a support mail from this morning.
    I have issues I need resolved and am quickly going off your product!

    It looks like there was some confusion with your forum username - you gave a different name in your original ticket than you gave today. I will activate this now.

    There are three of us on the support team and we do our best to respond to tickets within 24 hours. I am looking at your ticket now and will respond from there.

    On category pages, is it possible to have the category description only under the table of products rather than above and below?

    e.g. On this drum sticks page, the description "All the Drum Sticks you need!" is on there twice.

    (I haven't bought FSB yet to test and see, just wondering how flexible the layouts are)

    You can set that on the Categories page with anything you want or blank, wb.

    There's a top and bottom description field; I'd completed both of them the same previously and you've reminded me to now change them. :)
