How to add new menu items to the navigation bar?

While there’s no CMS system integrated to zStore yet you have to add own content and navigation items by yourself – a way to handle content pages is already raised in the zStore manual (Layouts)

you can add/modify links in the navigation in the header.php in your active layout

there are two navigations defined, one for the smaller mobile views and one for the desktop versions – search for ”/cnt/sample.html” and you’ll find how and where to add your menu items

Getting “You are submitting requests too quickly. Please retry your requests at a slower rate.” from Amazon API.

- have you enough sales these days/this month and is the api key set as active? how much?

From the Amazon website:
If your application is submitting requests faster than once per second per IP address, you may receive error messages from the Product Advertising API until you decrease the rate of your requests.
If your application is trying to submit requests that exceed the maximum request limit for your account, you may receive error messages from Product Advertising API. The request limit for each account is calculated based on revenue performance. Each account used to access the Product Advertising API is allowed an initial usage limit of 1 request per second. Each account will receive an additional 1 request per second (up to a maximum of 10) for every $4,600 of shipped item revenue driven in a trailing 30-day period (about $0.11 per minute).

I didn’t get any custom pages and item links doesn’t work too. Just 404 – not found. How can I fix this?

Several reasons can cause this

  • have you uploaded the .htaccess file?
  • mod_rewrite enabled [and allowance to use it (AllowOverrideAll)]?

above point fulfilled, still no luck

  • maybe the working directory on the webserver is not a “real one”.
    Please open your .htaccess and uncomment
    #RewriteBase /
    RewriteBase /
    is the absolute path to you installation URL -> /zstore/ -> /

still no luck?

for some providers like godaddy it’s maybe necessary to add

Options -Multiviews

Options +FollowSymLinks -MultiViews
to the top or end of your .htaccess – you have to play around with these optons
