I have my website set up to use one template style for my homepage and another for all of the other pages.

I have a "Featured Products" section on the homepage where I have 8 products manually selected as articleLayout=search. Clicking on the product name of any given product takes the user to the product page, however it uses the template style of the page it was linked from; in this case the home page.

How would i go about (if possible) setting them to show with the other template style?

If there's no straight forward way to do this, don't worry about it as i can just hide the elements that differ using CSS.

In the plugin there is this file: amazonWS/includes/helpers/helper.php, with these lines (493 to 4)
$menuid = JRequest::getInt('Itemid',0);
$internalLink = 'index.php?option=com_amazonws&view=product&return='.$return.'&Itemid='.$menuid.'&asin=';		

You need to set the $menuid to some value other than zero, I think that just replacing 0 in the first line should do it.

In a future release we can set up an option for this in the parameters, it would be useful.

This didn't work. The URL still shows as the item ID of the page it came from.

OK, we will look into it.

We are planning a new release soon, probably next week, it should be possible to include this as an option.
