Change amazon query syntax

The default syntax to show current orders in Amazon is this https://www.amazon.com/gp/css/order-history?ie=UTF8&ref_=nav_youraccount_orders& and is obtained by simply navigating to amazon.com, signing in, and clicking on "my orders."

This presents a problem for people that order allot because as little as 52 items will require six separate pages of data with no way to show the items all on one page.  This, and the fact that the list cannot be filtered at all is difficult.

The most critical thing that we would like to be able to do with the syntax pasted above is to modify it such that it shows all the pages without having to click on each page separately.

Assistance in modifying the URL syntax above is greatly appreciated.

no syntax is shown.

Besides, depending on your language, in fact, in pretty much all languages, you normally set the default number of records to show per page.

You can either remove it or assign a default number  like 1000000 that is not likely to be reached.

Doing so, will force all records to show on one page but there in mind that this can get ugly as you are forcing your users to scroll endlessly depending on how much records are being displayed.

You are mixing query string with query syntax.

If you have some code to show, it will probably help.

Ah, ok.

All I have is the Amazon search string which I was hoping to manipulate in order to all all items to be shown on one page.
sammySeltzerCommented:
I am not real sure you can control it or change it that way because that should have no bearing on the way the code was written.

What you can hope for is go through the link and see if there is an option to choose how many records to show for a particular page.

In some instances, they may show an option to "Show all".

You can also contact them and ask if the option you are asking for is available.

Beyond this, only you wrote the code, there is not much you can really do.

Sorry you can't do this - at least not by editing the URL

Amazon search returns use a value "ItemPage" to limit the number of search items visible on a single page.  By default this is set to 10.  It is possible to adjust it using Amazon's own API tools but crucially only to reduce it.  If you try to force ItemPage > 10 then the query fails.

Amazon's argument is that their advertising code which reads and indexes the items displayed would not be able to cope if someone forced a search for, say, the term "DVD" (1.5m results).  

The ItemPage value restriction is global so even in a more reasonable environment such as Customer Orders, whatever search terms you use, you cannot return more than 10 items per page view.
