How do you notify yahoo developer group of a problem they have. The site explorer api does not work when called by a program. Many people are reporting the same thing. How do you tell Yahoo?

    How do I tell you when I look up my stock quotes at the end the news is only the really current news it doesn't let me look back very far only the last maybe 6 news items for all the stocks I asked for a quote like it used to let you ask for more news articles. Help please. w_mcewen@yahoo.com

  • It seems to only be site explorer api calls.

  • Hi,

    as was noted earlier I haven't been able to find a specific problem with this API. I'm going to be investigating further.

    You can contact us via the boards here, or via our contact form on the main Yahoo developer network web site.

  • Hi -- we're having the exact same problem.

    This works just fine in the browser:

    http://search.yahooapis.com/SiteExplorerSe...linkData?appid=[1234]-&query=http://www.briansolis.com&results=1&omit_links=domain

    However, the exact same URI returns an error 999 when hit via script. (I have a screenshot, but not sure how to post.)

  • 999 is the error code when the query rate has been exceeded.
