    Ah ... you have to declare the actual title, not the category number. All is well with the world once again!

    More semantics, I think by "category" number you meant ID number ;-) but in any event, it does need the name of the category, not the ID as that is specific to the item.

    Yeah, I've been meaning to get rid of the numberings in the admin screen, as they serve no purpose. Also, I know people might want to use matching strings between CG-Amazon that are the same as WP categories -- but I'm just not there yet, not sure how to do that while retaining web-platform independence.
    Glad you got it working! (Thanks Beel!)

    Hiya,
    Is it possible to list a particular book - I'm wanting to display a book I'm talking about in a particular entry post (and I want to link to it using my Amazon Associates code) - is this possible with the plugin? (I have it all installed and have added the book to my CGA items).

    Thanks Beel... I've been trying for 15 minutes to get the posting to work properly... 60s wait between posts... darn formatting issues with HTML comments.... AAAARGH! ;)

    Helps to have IE and FF open to the post when doing a lot of editing - cuts it down to 30 seconds ;-)

    Ahh, that's brilliant - thanks for the speedy reply. I've just adapted the CSS styles etc too.

    Okay, I've decided to put forth b19 of the CG-PowerPack, in case this week gets busy and I don't have another chance.
    Enhancements and bugfixes in: CG-SameCat, CG-Inline, CG-Amazon, CG-Feedread, CG-Referer.
    CG-Inline and CG-Amazon now share the amazon image-size determination code... things should all now work the same in all cases. CG-Inline docs updated a teensy bit with better description of the Amazon inlines.
    Working on seller searches and other variations for CG-Amazon. Write me at cgcode AT chait DOT net if you have particular Amazon requests (browse node queries may be next).

    Just to confuse people (heh!), I've put up b20 ahead of expected schedule. It fixes some 'bugs' in b19 with CG-Amazon image size stuff not working properly (especially for inlines and for no-image cases). Also reworked some of CG-FeedRead to better handle UTF-8 unicode character sets.
    In any case, I thought the changes had a significant enough impact to merit replacing b19 with b20 real quick... ;)

    Alright, I downloaded it, I have it running now what would I put as the URL of the script, the one with the plugin or a new one? Sorry for my n00bness :-p.

    Just to be clear (since I'm not always), "link-to" is the path on your web server to get all the way down to tracktunes.php in the cg-plugins subfolder. So it's something like

    http://yoursite/wp-content/plugins/cg-plugins/tracktunes.php

    at the start of that sample.

    I get this error when I try to install the feedread...
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: feedreadinstall() in D:\hshome\mbarbh\personal.rbhemauer.com\wordpress\wp-content\plugins\cg-feedread-plugin.php on line 31
    what am I doing wrong?

    OK- I'm not a PHP programmer... why won't this work?
    <?php
    $feedUrl = "http://rss.netflix.com/NewReleasesRSS"; // enter your feed's url here
    $feedOut = getSomeFeed($feedUrl, 4, false, "new-release", '', 36); // enter a cache name
    if ($feedOut)
    echo $feedOut;
    ?>
    what am I missing?

    Warning: array_filter(): The second argument, 'Array', should be a valid callback in /home/.amphion/hagure/hagure-metaru.net/wordpress/wp-includes/capabilities.php on line 152

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/.amphion/hagure/hagure-metaru.net/wordpress/wp-includes/capabilities.php on line 156

    When using the CG-Amazon plugin, I get this error on the top of my Dreamhosted page. The artwork shows up fine, but I don't know what's causing this.

    When I installed it on my MAMP sandbox (a mirror of the online site) though, no problem.

    Any clues?

    Thank you in advance

    I can't seem to edit my post anymore... weird.

    Anyway, if I comment out line 152 of capabilities.php, The message dissapoears. But I'm sure I don't wanna do that now right?

    I tested it on an older beta someone was hosting, seemed to be working fine. I'm busy at the moment, but just grabbed 2.0.x out of Subversion, so I can hopefully start to look into this stuff over the weekend. I'll start a new post when I have a 'beta' release people can start using.

    A couple things.

    Using WP 2.0, I get these errors on every page but the main page.

    Warning: array_filter(): The second argument, 'Array', should be a valid callback in /home/.amphion/hagure/hagure-metaru.net/wordpress/wp-includes/capabilities.php on line 152

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/.amphion/hagure/hagure-metaru.net/wordpress/wp-includes/capabilities.php on line 156

    Is this just me?

    Also, there seems to be an incompatibility with the del.icio.us style mp3 flash player. When both are activated, the little play buttons go poof. These two inconviniences have led me to deactivate the plug-ins for now.

    Either way, thanks for the hard work on the plug ins. Though I mainly use the pack for whattunes, I appreciate the work going in to this monstrous project!

    EDIT: Nevermind... there's a fix for both these problems!

    From http://www.negative99.com/archive/79/ :

    'blockquote'
    Go to your WordPress directory and add the following code to WP-config.php.

    // ***** IE-warning fix for CG-Amazon *****
    include_once('wp-content/plugins/cg-plugins/error-handler.php'); '/blockquote'

    Yay!

    BTW, IE isn't the only browser affected... the mozilla-based Camino (mac browser) was giving me the same thing

    (I wouldn't want anyone accusing me of touching IE now...)

    Yeah, that's the temporary fix.

    I apologize to all my users. Unfortunately, the plugins don't pay the bills, not even CG-Amazon. It's only my love for building these things, and the donations of a select few users in the last year, that keeps driving me to future releases. But I gotta eat, so my paid consulting work has had to take precendence over my getting out the 2.0-compatible update of the powerpack.

    Still working on it though! ;) Hopefully in the next few weeks, as CHAITGEAR 2.0 launches and some other stuff stabilizes... keep an eye out.

    No need for apology... like you said, they ain't payin' the bills, so in my POV, anything you do with the plugs is a gift. I know nothing about nothing regarding php and whatever else; the ability to use this plug-in at all is something that my blog is thankful for.
    Its people like you that keep me stickin with WP, that keep me bloggin at all!.

    I feel that one of the net's true power lay in the ability to make and retainK links with databases of info. Its stuff like this plug, that makes the intercorrelations that much easier. Perhaps, someday we'll have.........

    But I digress.

    Thanks for everything you've done.

    For myself, its been a long journey of thread searching and google hunting, but I've finally gotten some of the functionalily I've wanted (automatic updates of "Now Playing" on a mac) I know I still have so so so so much to learn about a lotta stuff, but its cool tto have nonetheless. Now I just have to find the free time to free myself from Kubrick!

    PS: Ain't ya just waitin for the concept of woofie to take hold?
