I was mucking around with CafeWish to see how its shop categorisation works on Premium CP shops.  (Kinda nice.  May go there. Simplest version looks like this.) [Taken down for a bit.  See BigDogsPorch below for a working edition.]

But then I noticed something odd in my stats and, sure enough, cpshop picks up the formatting so... voila! [Taken down for a bit.  See BigDogsPorch below for a working edition.]

There are some issues.  

  • It completely by-passes cpshop for <[content]> on this page.  No thumbnail grid formatting and no filters.
    (Can't fix that.)
  • The product links take you back to your CP store, not the cpshop detail page.
    (That can be fixed in CW.)

    • That creates another issue as well. These links don't contain your pid, so affiliate webmasters should be checking to make sure the shops they're affiliated with haven't implemented CafeWish on their sites.
      (Also fixed/fixing in CW)

  • The drinkware displays the back side view by default.
    (CP bug -- they're working on it.)
  • And the "may be available in more colors" image looks like crap.
    (That can be fixed too, probably via the cpshop image file.)


Thought you all might like to know.
