Amazon Store Integration

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.0.9 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 6
Released: 20 Sep 2005 Last Update: 27 Sep 2005 Downloads: 39
Not Supported DB Changes Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files Is in Beta Stage  

This is my first mod for vBulletin, so take it easy on me if I've done something incorrect...

Anyway, this is an Amazon store integration mod for vB. One of my sites is job/career oriented, so I offer books that are related to this through this mod. It will pull all of the items in a particular category (Amazon BrowseNode) and display them for users to pick & choose what they want. They can add the items to a remote Amazon shopping cart, and when they're finished shopping they can check out through Amazon.

Note that only logged in users will be able to add item to their carts.

See the attached file "install.txt" for installation instruction.

You can see it in action here:

Let me know what you think, have any problems, questions, suggestions, etc.

any clue of what i may have done?
Your navbar is using relative links, for example:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add "$vboptions[bburl]/" to the front of the link to correct it:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

A couple of request

Is there a way to have bigger thumbnails when your viewing pages (before you click on the product to read more)

And possibly have 3 rows across instead of just the 2....looks a little empty

and when you view your cart if there can be a link to continue shopping

Here's a fix... The image displayed is supposed to be the medium image, the code for that got all screwed up. Also the title isn't displayed.

In amazon_store_data_listbit, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In amazon_store, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I'll update the install.txt file, and will have some more fixes coming later today or tomorrow morning:

- Add a "continue shopping" link.
- Straighten out the boxes on the main page, they're not lined up properly.
- Guests can add items to their cart, apparantly, that's not supposed to happen.
- The page description & keywords are screwed up.

I've got a bunch of fixes completed, I'm hoping to have the rest done today.

Completed:
- No more than 250 pages can be requested, but this app would keep going forever, allowing the user (or a spider) to keep requesting past page 250 but nothing would be displayed. Now it will stop at page 250 and won't display the "Next" link.
- Corrected the page description, keywords & title.
- A user on a detail page wasn't been shown properly in "Who's Online"
- Added a subtotal to the cart page
- In some cases, after adding an item to the cart the "items in cart" wasn't updated immediately.
- In some cases, guests could add items to the cart.

In Progress:
- Once I added the subtotal to the cart page, I found that the price displayed was wrong.
- Add "Continue Shopping" link to the cart, and have it go back to the last page displayed.
- Straighten out the boxes

I've updated the files attached to this mod with the latest & greatest.

Fixes in 1.0.2 include:

- No more than 250 pages can be requested, but this app would keep going forever, allowing the user (or a spider) to keep requesting past page 250 but nothing would be displayed. Now it will stop at page 250 and won't display the "Next" link.
- Corrected the page description, keywords & title.
- A user on a detail page wasn't been shown properly in "Who's Online"
- Added a subtotal to the cart page.
- In some cases, after adding an item to the cart the "items in cart" wasn't updated immediately.
- In some cases, guests could add items to the cart.
- The price displayed were wrong.
- Added "Continue Shopping" link to the cart, and have it go back to the last page displayed.

Still left to do, for the 1.0.3 version:

- Straighten out the boxes on the main page.

To upgrade from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2 (the latest), download the amazon_store.php file and replace the one you already have.

Then, make these few changes:

In functions_online.php
Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add after:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In the amazon_store template
Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add after:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Did you replace your amazon_store.php file with the one attached to the beginning on this thread? In addition to those two problems, it looks like your store is still showing the wrong prices, I think you're running old code.

That's quite alright, I do that sort of thing all the time.

I think I PM'd you on your site with the same info... If it wasn't you then I'm bothering one of your users and they won't have a clue what I'm talking about. ;-)

You can change the category, the instructions for doing that are in the install.txt file.
