On a slightly different tangent...
I was playing around with settings for Amazon and Syndetics in the
BIBIMAGE and WEBADDRESS wwwoptions, and was able to configure WEBADRESS
so that it would link to Syndetic review if we had an item, and pass the
search on to Amazon if we didn't. If anyone is interested in the syntax
I'll be glad to provide it.
Syndetics has come out with a "compound" image, that provides links to
reviews out of the BIBIMAGE wwwoption, expressed in a link below the cover
art. So, we will probably not use this 'hybrid' WEBADDRESS syntax, and
just use that wwwoption for Amazon, should we decide to affiliate with
I'm have added an (personal) affiliate ID to WEBADDRESS and it didn't
break the wwwoption functioning, but we'll have to go live before we can
test if it is really working. No one is going to buy books off of our
staging port. If it works our library is considering becomming an
affiliate. If anyone else is already testing or has an Amazon affiliation
working, I'd like to connect with them.
