Post  kev0153 on Wed May 01, 2013 12:44 pm

Saw this thread over on the comicrack forum.

Thought i'd post as an FYI.

Thanks. ComicTagger seems to be working for me, though. Are you experiencing any problems?

Yes, but is is hit or miss.

I was trying to scrape All-New X-Men #11 and it was giving me a network timeout error. However, I was scrapping another comic Indestructible Hulk and it worked just fine.

Another piece of software that I use that relies upon the comicvine api also stopped working today. Apperently the api address change back to beta.comicvine.com was from api.comicvine.com. The thought was it was possible some DNS server maintenance and it might sort itself out.

Since the changes last month, CT has been using "www.comicvine.com/api". Maybe that's what saved it's bacon.

Still it looks like there is a change/bug that's affecting CT today: If you do a new search on a series title with more than 100 results (i.e. "Spider Man"), it just spins. This is due to the initial result set giving an incorrect number of total results. I've posted a bug report on their forum, but have a fix for the next release if they don't take care of it on their end.
