New version 0.9.10 online! [Update]

Timo News 12 Comments

A new version of AmazonSimpleAdmin is online! This one is ready for the upcoming changes in the Amazon webservice API which was tested today and caused some errors with the old version.

The feature description from the official Changelog:

  • Fix: Update to API version 2011-08-01. The associate tag is now mandatory!
  • New: Support of Amazon Italy, Spain and China
  • New: With this version comes a backup mechanism for your custom templates. Further updates should keep your custom files.
  • Fix: Fixed a bug in rendering placeholder $AmountSaved->FormattedPrice

The new backup mechanism of your custom templates will first take effect after this update, so you should backup your custom files for one last time.

Please let me know what you think about the update. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


Another advice: If you update the plugin manually (by uploading the files via FTP), be sure to empty the cache. It could be that the faulty content is still cached.

I started working on Amazon Simple Admin back in 2007 because I could not find an Amazon plugin for Wordpress that met my requirements. After many years of experience and hard work, the complete new ASA 2 Pro was released in early 2016. Follow me on Twitter.

      Hi yuross,
      1: I can not say exactly. I’ve read that Amazon switches to the new API version on 25th October. But I am not completely sure about that.
      2: I think this link style will still work. I will try to get some more information about the associate link style topic.

  1. Thanks mate!

    Safe to say I had a mild panic when the changes went live for 4 hours yesterday. I inadvertently created more work for myself by requesting new API keys, D’oh!

      Hey Adam,
      it’s my pleasure. I’m happy that I could release the update just in time. Now I can start planning some new features … πŸ˜‰

      1. Speaking of new features, I was messing about with the API in PHP last night and noticed that sometimes Amazon groups products like shoes together (sizes, prices etc).

        I can’t find any sort of ASIN for the group of products, only singular ones that have been grouped together.

        Am I missing something or is this a limitation in the Amazon API?


  2. Your plugin works well. I really like it.

    Unfotunetaly {$RatingStars} still don’t show on Japanese Amazon. I use latest version..

    You have some idea to fix ?
