  • Get Amazon product data using [amazon:ASIN:selector], for example, [amazon:0399155341:thumbnail], [amazon:0399155341:full], or [amazon:0399155341:inline]. In addition, you can grab various data items from the item description using selectors like author, title, asin, isbn, ean, detailpageurl, salesrank, publisher, manufacturer, studio, label, binding, listpriceamount, listpricecurrencycode, listpriceformattedprice, lowestpriceamount, lowestpricecurrencycode, lowestpriceformattedprice, amazonpriceamount, amazonpricecurrencycode, amazonpriceformattedprice, productgroup, producttypename, invalid_asin, deweydecimalnumber, edition, numberofpages, publicationyear, type, releaseyear, publicationyear, smallimage, smallimageurl, smallimageheight, smallimagewidth, mediumimage, mediumimageurl, mediumimageheight, mediumimagewidth, largeimage, largeimageurl, largeimageheight, largeimagewidth. For example, [amazon:0596515804:title] will provide the title of the item, and [amazon:0596515804:largeimage] will be replaced with an img tag giving the large image. NOTE: Spaces can also be used instead of colons between the elements of the filter tag, but should be considered a deprecated form of notation. A complete description of filters is on the Amazon module handbook page.
