The KB tool was always link based. You entered the asin, and it looked it up. So 9 maximum requests.
That might have been their old tool. The KB Link Maker lets you enter keywords. It returns a list of books that match the search. The difference is that with KB you choose one and manually paste it into the signature one at a time. We build a complete signature. The searches are the same with respect to what is searched for and what is returned except that my search supports author searches whereas they go for keywords only.

I just tested theirs and it still works. Ours used to work. Whatever Amazon changed disables our search but not theirs.

This tool returns all books, and lets you choose one. Could be Amazon has decided to not allow this anymore.

As in requesting a specific book is ok, but asking for all books is not.

Amazon has changed something in its AWS protocols. No matter how big a choke I put on the queries, it returns the error that says I'm querying too fast. Amazon is unresponsive to my requests for information. It may be that they have disabled my AWS account and are sending the wrong error message. The only way to tell is for someone else to sign up and let the program use those public and private keys in the queries. Until that happens, I'm shut down. I've disabled the tool. I cannot change the link in the first message to this thread because it's no longer my thread.

It could be that we're using the wrong technique to query AMS. If the KBoards tool still works, that's a possibility, but I'd have to look into how they're doing it.

Programming the Signature by using the Selfie feature will still work where you provide links to book listings rather than using the search mechanism, but the program needs to get around the mechanism. I'll look into that, but (1) I didn't see much use of the program back when it was working and (2) I do not and have been told I will not have access to integrate the tool with the forum, so I doubt it's worth the effort.

I should have been reading this thread all along. I didn't know we could use our KB sig. I actually set up my sig here using the very first method you had.

I just tested it. It's been a while. It's doing what she said to me too. Amazon must have tightened their access times or something. I'll take a look later today.

I'd like to have my books in a signature at the bottom of posts, but I opened the three links above, and I'm tired - so I just read that first you register then this, that, this, this, that, that, ten pages and I shut the links. I know I've put signature links on other sites, and it was easy - but all those who know what they're doing with this have done a great job.

Click the link on the first post. There is no need to register now.

The main part is finding your books on Amazon.


Thanks. I've tried a few times, but it just gives me the message, "AWS Access Key ID: AKIAJQYKDMZ642KP6JFA. You are submitting requests too quickly. Please retry your request again"

It doesn't matter what fields I have filled in, whether or not I try to log in, that is always the response when I hit search or enter.  I've pm'd my  signature code to you - thanks if you can help, but no stress if you can't. Not having my books in my signature isn't an important issue.

I've read three threads on creating signatures, and still no closer - the signature mill just tells me I'm making requests too quickly (I entered my name + search), the Kboards info doesn't paste over, and I followed two sets of clear steps laid out in one of the threads - do this, this, then that, then this, then this, this, that, that, this, then this, and that should be right, and nothing. I'll just assume that no one would want to click on my books - they rarely get under 20,000 in Amazon rankings, anyway, so nothing earth shattering.

PM me your KB signature. I'll change it and put it in.
