Yeesh, found that and fixed it. New version going live now. Sorry!

some questions since I'm playing around with development tools to pick up a few things and decided to make a rudimentary ilx client as a test:

1. is the 'api' that Zing uses the only api available? it seems like the login is the ootb login page and then you get the cookies for the rest of the requests
2. the rest of the calls are just xml versions of threads/posts. is that right?
3. all auth is via cookies?

my initial idea was to recreate the backend and gui in one app but to speed things up (since I'm learning all the frontend stuff on the fly) I was going to wrap all the existing API calls in a modern rest api returning json but... hrrm

I can return JSON if that’s what you prefer but yeah it’s the auth etc that will cause all the grief. What platform are you building for?

nbd really! just curious

If that sounds about right, I’ll see how long my attention span lasts in experimenting. I was messing around in Flutter/Dart and was going to do a quick c# backend (something I have existing experience in) to get things rolling faster.

four months pass...

hey is there like a bug submission type thing if we find a thread that gives a "Problem reading messages" error saying that Zing can't read old/corrupted messages? it's this one btw: Maurice Fulton...best tunes by him

You can start a thread on Mod Request, but I'll sort this one, thanks

Should be sorted now.

Also, mh: now have a non-cookie-based version of the auth API, if you're still playing about

my home coding is all work-related now but that’s cool news!

Just curious why the app prevents you from pinching / resizing images ?

It’s not so much that it prevents it, it’s more than I don’t know how to enable it! Time to copy and paste random things from StackOverflow dot com again

update on my search problem:

at some point I discovered that search actually does work fine for me when I do it on the bookmarks page. the issue I described back in Dec and Jan is with searching on
one of the board pages. so basically I’m good as long as I think before I search.
