Brett - this maybe be a bit of a pain to test - but if you open up the bookcover.php file and find the url for amazon and copy that into a browser while entering in your amazon id as well as the isbn for the record - you should be able to see what is happening.  Let me know if you are able to get this to work or not.

 

It should look like this:

http://webservices.amazon.com/onca/xml?Service=AWSECommerceService&SubscriptionId=<MYAMAZONID>&Operation=ItemLookup&ResponseGroup=Images&ItemId=<ISBN>

Subject: [VuFind-General] Book Covers?

 

Hi

 

I cannot get the book covers and summaries working. I have created an aws account with Amozon and have put the id in the .ini file. However it seems to timeout. I sit behind a proxy and am wondering if this has anything to do with it?

 

Thanks

 

Hamish
