I can't seem to get the geocoding API to work today. Every request results in a backend fetch error 404 or (now) backend fetch error 302.
It worked for a second in the middle of it all, then back to not working. Worked all day yesterday. I did update the format of my URL (was api.local.yahoo.com) but only after I started getting the errors - was thinking perhaps the old format was defunct. Also tried two different API keys - same result.
Here's a typical request - anything wrong with this?
How long was it up for at 9:72? It is no longer up.
I have just developed a new page for a client and was presenting it today. Not having the maps is a problem... The designer of the Flash Maps product replied this was the first time that this has happened to them. They have written to Yahoo, but I don't know how much weight that would carry.
How many folks might depend on Geocode mapping for their webpages? Does it number in the hundreds or thousands? I am trying to get an idea of whether I should rebuild the whole thing again from scratch with another mapping program or just wait a little. If Yahoo is not interested in maintaining the mapping section of their developer network due to lack of users then I may have to do that.
