MTAmazon Plugin for Movable Type

Overview

MTAmazon is a plugin for Movable Type that provides template tags for displaying information from Amazon's product catalog.

Important Notice

MTAmazon is no longer maintained as a separate stand alone plugin. Users wishing to integrate Movable Type with Amazon should use Media Manager (which MTAmazon comes bundled with).

History

  • MTAmazon was originally written by Adam Kalsey. As I developed Media Manager I wished to make changes and Adam allowed me to take over development of his plugin.
  • I initially renamed and repackaged MTAmazon for Movable Type 3.2 and thought it clever to name the software MTAmazon32. I have since regretted that decision as it only has led to confusion about the difference between MTAmazon and MTAmazon32. In truth there is little difference.
  • Later I found that most users wishing to use MTAmazon, really desired the functionality of Media Manager which made great use of MTAmazon's functionality. To simplify the installation of Media Manager, I began to bundle MTAmazon with Media Manager, which I continue to do todat.

Latest Documentation

Below is the documentation for the version of MTAmazon that ships with Media Manager.

This and Media Manager, are they MT4 friendly that you know of?

Doesn't appear that this works any more. You have to digital sign Amazon REST requests now. So both Media Manager and Amazon plugins for Movable Type no longer work.

Here's some sample perl code to do this: http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?externalID=2482&categoryID=14

Any plans to update?

What i would like to know is if this software is still working? and if previous problems has been resolved. you see i find that it fits the purpose i have in mind specially the mtamazon plugin.

Please download the latest version of Media Manager. It has the fixes you are looking for.

I recently downloaded the media manager 2.1 plugin. However, am having problems installing it on my wordpress. I would like to use it for my amazon affiliate but been unsuccessful with installing it.

Installed the plugin onto my wordpress plugin section, but it did not work.

Please can you guide me through.

I understand that to use it for amazon affiliate i would have to install media manager and NTamazon?

This is a plugin for Movable Type. This is not a WordPress plugin. Sorry. Perhaps you should switch to Movable Type? :)
