As you can see from my links I have added a shop to this website. It did not take long and it is easy to add/remove categories and items.
I searched for how to incorporate an aStore into a website and went to this article –
Before I worked through the instructions I read some of the comments, one that was useful was about custom page templates. I did not know how to create a custom page template so another search led me to this article –
So, taken from both articles, the following are the steps I took to set up my aStore –
1. Go to Amazon affiliate program set up your aStore, at the end of the process you get the code (selecting – Embed my store using an inline frame)
2. I then followed the instructions from the second article and created an empty file in my theme folder called cover_page.php
This is what I put in cover_page.php
Template Name: Cover Page
<?php get_header(); ?>
<iframe src=”http://astore.amazon.co.uk/fredbloggscou-21″ width=”100%” height=”800″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no”></iframe>
<?php get_footer(); ?>
Note: You have to paste in your Amazon code, I changed some settings and should change more but it works.
3. Finally go to the dashboard in WordPress, add new page. All you have to do is add a suitable title for the page and then in Attributes on the right hand side, under Template, select your custom template.
