  • Hi,

    I'm trying to retrieve contacts informations and when I redirect my users to login into yahoo I get the following error :

    Erreur – Ce service est indisponible pour l’instant.
    Invalid (missing) src or appid


    The thing is that when I try with an other app ID and secret (ones from a friend's application that registered a few month before me) it works fine!

    Note : my app ID is much longer than his

    Please help me to get this work.

    Thanks

  • Hi Oliver,

    I think there might be an issue here with the type of application that you are creating because of the size of the app id that you mentioned you have (given OAuth app id's are much longer). Are you trying to create an application that will be displayed on yahoo or one that will be used on your own website? If you're building an application on site, it'll be an Open application, and if it's on your site it'll be an OAuth application.

    If this is not the case, can you please provide additional details about what you're trying to do and a sample of your code (minus your keys of course).

    Thanks,

  • Should one have a program for a parlor/educational "game" in the form of a quiz, how would one contact Yahoo marketing or program development to see if this is something Yahoo would like to purchase, further develop, and get out as a Yahoo Game of sorts?  Any ideas as to the email address for such a department within Yahoo?  The program has been beta tested on select personal groups and has been well received.  We can show hits as well as completion rates.  We have copyrighted under intellectual copyright concepts.  The quiz needs further development to cover more areas, and a Yahoo or other team could accomplish that in about a week if not less.  We would provide the code and programming.
    Thanks.

  • Hi, 
       using Contacts api, when did u set permissions in your project like after creation of project, did u set permission in contacts -->Read 
    and clicked on save and change Consumer Key

    if above is the case then the consumer key changes and you need to add the most recent consumer key to your call

    try this go to MyProjects and change the permissions to none and save and change key , repeat the process and set the permission to Read and Save and change Consumer key 
    now copy the consumer key and secret and work with it

    hope it helps.
