    I would like to know if it’s possible to do this with ASA2 Pro.

    Some genre’s of books on Amazon do not split out into enough filters. So I want to make pages on my site that shows these niches of books.

    I want to use a keyword search on kindlestore of ‘regency pirate’ or ‘regency kidnapping’ or ‘regency nobility’ or ‘regency duke’. You get the idea. Then use the sortable table template to display the results. Is this possible?

    Thanks for your request. Currently it is not possible to include a keyword search directly on a page. That would be very imprecise anyway, because you would have no control over the resulting products. But you could use the search page import function of ASA2. It is described here: http://docs.getasa2.com/import_url_importer.html#search-result-url

    This feature gives you control over which products you want to import into ASA2’s product repository. You can then add categories and tags to the imported products as you are used to in WordPress and then use the extensive filters of the asa2_smart_collection shortcode to display the products you want. Here you find the filter options for smart collections: Here you find the filter options of the shortcode: http://docs.getasa2.com/shortcodes_asa2_smart_collection.html

    I hope I was able to help you. If you still have questions, please let me know.

    Honestly, I don’t want a curated list of results. The book searching is not filtered enough in certain categories. I want to fix that by having pages showing a list of search results such as ‘regency pirate nobility kidnapping’. Any book that fits those keywords should be returned and in the list.

    I’ll try out your suggestion and see if it’s a workaround.

    Sure, I understand. There will be a keyword search function in a future update. There is already a prototype for it.
