Amazon Store Integration
Mod Version: 1.00.00 B8, by mikelbeck (Member) mikelbeck is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (3 votes - 4.33 average) Installs: 61
Released: 31 Oct 2007 Last Update: 08 Nov 2009 Downloads: 856
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Translations External Content Is in Beta Stage  

Finally, I've gotten around to putting together a version of the Amazon Store integration mod for vBulletin 3.6.

This mod allows you to add an Amazon store to your vBulletin. You can set it to search for a particular keyword, for different types of items - CDs, DVDs, Clothing, etc. A sample of the store in action is available here: http://www.lidragracing.com/amazon_store.php.

You will need to sign up for Amazon Web Services to get an AWS key in order for this to work. In addition, you need to have PHP 5 installed on your server.

Installation is very simple, upload 3 files, import the xml file and then add a link to the store in your navigation bar. See the attached file "ECS Amazon Store.txt" for the exact installation instructions.

Give it a try, let me know what you think. Make sure you click "Mark as Installed" if you've installed it.

Also, if you intall it and use it, please post the URL you have it installed at so I can see how it's being used.

{edit}

To upgrade to a newer version, re-upload the php files and then import the xml product file. Afterwards go to the admin control panel to check to make sure all of the fields are filled in properly.

Thanks for sharing - I installed and went to view the store and got this error

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: simplexml_load_file() in /home/mysite/public_html/forum/amazon_store.php on line 55
do we enter the AWS key or the AWS secret key? I tried both and got the same error.

Interesting - but Amazon already has what's called an A-Store that can easily be embedded in webpages with IFrame: http://jpicforum.info/view.php?pg=shopjpic

Question: What makes this modification any better?

At anyrate - thanx for the sharing

Jacquii.

You would enter the AWS access key.

As for the error you're getting - are you using PHP 5?

Thanks for the info. No - I am not using php 5, my php version is 4.4.7

I installed it on a test forum with no other hacks installed and got the same error.

I sure hope I can get it going - I like it a lot better than the A-store. Do you get affiliate payments from purchases at this store?

Lemmy rules!

You need to have php 5 or higher, the simplexml_load_file() function isn't available in php 4.

Yes, that's the whole idea. I've just realized that I didn't put in the AssociateTag, though, so you can't track your site's searches... I'll update it to add that.

Lemmy rules!
You got that right!

Not easily... the reason I held off on putting this together for 3.6.8 was because it was such a pain to decode XML with PHP 4. PHP 5 makes it real easy, instead of blocks and blocks of confusing code it's just a single function call.
