    I am looking for some help.

    I found what maybe most are doing or a great site. I love what they did.


    I have come to a point now that I understand what was done.

    Code:
    http://www.disneycarstoys.net/

    But do not know how to do it.

    example.

    The site is using wordpress of course.
    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/download/

    and the theme
    therunningstone.0.3.3


    but I would like to know the plugins ?????


    I have checked the following as I have learned from this site.

    Code:
    http://www.disneycarstoys.net/wp-content/themes/
    Code:
    http://www.disneycarstoys.net/wp-content/plugins/

    but stuck.... with no answers ???


    can someone outline what was done at this site ????

    If you're wondering how he got the products in....the site is using aStore from Amazon.
    It's available for free in the affiliate section of Amazon.

    The site uses an iframe to show the store.

    Code:
    <iframe src="http://astore.amazon.com/**********-20" width="100%" height="4000" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe></p>
    <script type="text/javascript">
      addthis_url    = 'http%3A%2F%2Fwww.disneycarstoys.net%2Fonlinestore';
      addthis_title  = 'Disney+Cars+Toys+Shopping';
      addthis_pub    = '';
    </script>
    (I erased the aff.link, no need for that)

    thats great, thanks - I have use aStore from Amazon for about a year now.

    however the format seems unique.

    As a custom setup to wp. the site has checkout... and one scroll of buy now items ?, maybe different format aStore ?

    so I was wondering if he did something different other that pasting the code into a wp post "HTML" format post ???

    or maybe into the templace (single post, main template) ???


    can you-anyone suggest any custom setting that might be in this site.

    plugins I would look for that might be used.

    I am hoping to re-create some similar ???


    thanks for your response ..

    What kind of special setup do you see?

    I just did a quick test setup.

    To me it seems he's just using the inline frame option from astore.

    Checkout, multiple pages, etc. is all part of astore.

    He made sure the colors matched those from his blog (or the other way around).

    Make a test-setup and see how everything is handled by Amazon.

    Using aStore is the quickest way to setup a product filled blog.
    Only bad thing is that it pulls everything from Amazon on the fly so they have a pretty good view on your traffic.

    The astore is on another page here:
    Code:
    http://www.disneycarstoys.net/onlinestore
    The main homepage is running some kind of Amazon plugin feeding posts along with images and videos. Doesn't look like Reviewazon nor WPRobot.

    Home Page:
    Blogsense-WP does this. PM me for my site examples. AND Right now I'm working on a upgrade that takes comments from product pages, if their there, and makes them into comments on the post.
