Amazon Template Modification Multiple Column Layout of In-line Multi Results

To create a multiple column layout of the In-line Multi you would need to modify the inlinemulti.html file of the Amazon Theme Template Set you are using.

3 Column in-line Multi

It would be a good idea to make a copy of the Amazon Theme Template Set you are using like suggested on the this video at about 4:28. http://www.wpzonbuilder.com/blog/how-to-modify-a-wordpress-template/

Or you can attempt to modify the Theme Template Set your are using now by going to:

http://www.yourSite.com/wp-admin/plugin-editor.php?file=amzn/templates/default/inlinemulti.html

Replacing the /default/ with the Theme Template Set you are using as shown on the “WPZonBuilder General Settings” -> “Template” page in the “Template Set” drop down box. Once you have the URL set up correctly you can copy and paste it into your browser and hit enter. You will be brought to a page where you can edit the HTML code right in WordPress and not have to use FTP.

Copy and paste the code below into the edit box replacing the existing code and click the Update File button. Create a post with an In-line Mutli to see how the results will display within your theme’s layout.

The CSS code below my need some adjustments to work within your theme’s layout. The 2 to watch are the width and height. Those setting should get you close to a 3 column layout with a uniform height. If you want a 2 column layout you can change the width to somewhere around 44% and the height would need to be adjusted or removed. You will see that adjusting the width to a smaller percentage can give you more columns if needed.


<style type="text/css">
<!--

.amzn_inlineColDiv {
width: 29%;
height: 260px;
text-align: center;
margin: 1%;
padding: 1%;
float: left;
border: 1px solid #CCC;

}
-->

</style>
<div class='amzn_inlinediv'>
<div class='amzn_inlineColDiv'>
<a [relnofollow] [targetblank] href="[DetailPageURL]" class='amzn_multititle'>[Title]</a><br /><br />

<a [relnofollow] [targetblank] title="[Title]" href="[DetailPageURL]"><img alt="[Title]" src="[SmallImage]" /></a><br />

<span class='amzn_ratingtext'>Average Rating:</span> <span class='amzn_rating'><img src='[StarURL]' style='border:none;' /></span><br />

[TotalReviews] total <a [relnofollow] [targetblank] href="[DetailPageURL]">customer reviews...</a><br />

WordPress 3.4 Image Problems and WP Zon Builder

The Problem

WordPress 3.4 changed the way they handle Thumbnail/Featured Images.  This caused most sites to not show these images.  This is not a WP Zon Builder issue.  Here is a Google search for wordpress 3.4 images problem, which shows the problem.

WP Zon Builder can only be responsible for WP Zon Builder images.  WordPress’s 3.4 update may affect other themes and plugins.

If you have other display issues after the upgrade to WordPress 3.4 or higher it may be a theme and or other plugin issues.  Check with those developers for solutions.

The Solution

Download newest version of WP Zon Builder 2.5L or greater.  As of 2.5L, WP Zon Builder is coded to conform to the new WordPress 3.4 standard.  (Note – 2.5L will also work on older versions of WordPress)

It is a good practice to do a backup of your site and database before upgrading or any significant change.

Also, for those that have made some modifications like a modified Theme Template Set or created a new Theme Template Set.  You should save those to your hard drive and upload those back to the appropriate places after you have upgraded.

Instructions:

New users, installs and websites:

  • Use WP Zon Builder 2.5L or greater and Install like normal, no worries.

Existing WP Zon Builder sites that have already upgraded to WordPress 3.4:

If you already have sites set up with WP Zon Builder posts and have made the switch to WordPress 3.4 you may see that your Thumbnail/Featured Images are not working properly.

  1. Upgrade to WP Zon Builder 2.5L or greater (see upgrade instructions here)
  2. To auto update old images to the new WP 3.4 standard, go to this page on your site

    http://[SITE_DOMAIN]/wp-admin/admin.php?page=amzn_migrate_3_4

  3. You are done

Existing WP Zon Builder sites that have Not upgraded to WordPress 3.4 yet:

If you have sites made with previous versions of WordPress and WP Zon Builder you can install the latest version of WP Zon Builder 2.5L or greater and not notice any changes.  But if you update your WordPress to 3.4 or higher at a later date you may/will encounter the Thumbnail/Featured Images problem for your posts that were made with previous versions of WP Zon Builder. The following steps will update the affected posts and you will be set to work with WordPress 3.4 or higher.

  1. Upgrade to WP Zon Builder 2.5L or greater (see upgrade instructions here)
  2. To auto update old images to the new WP 3.4 standard, go to this page on your site

    http://[SITE_DOMAIN]/wp-admin/admin.php?page=amzn_migrate_3_4

  3. You are done.
