Photo Search Engine Not Working

Mon Sep 29, 2008 11:31 pm

When trying to use the photo search engine, I get the following message

"Only search URLs generated by our search form are supported. Please return to the search form and resubmit your search."

Please fix it!!!!

Hello Coal,

I've just tried a few searches using the search engine and it seems to work fine.
Could you tell me what you were searching for and how you went about conducting that search? Also, were you using IE or Firefox?

This will help to diagnose the problem and allow me to send a bug report to DM if necessary.

Thanks,

Edward

Hi Edward

I've been searching for Air France A318/319/320/321 Cabin views both on Safari and IE and it doesn't work in either.

Thanks a lot!

Cheers

Coal,

I've done some testing with IE and Mozilla and have exactly the same problem you mentioned. I'm going to do some further testing of a possible solution later, but unfortunately I need to go to work now. I'll get back to you in about 12 hours.

Regards,

Edward

Coal,

I think the problem may simply be with the Air France entry in the search engine. I can't get any Air France photos to show up when I use it. I am making inquiries about getting this fixed. In the meanwhile, I dug up some photos with the editor's interface for you:

One each for A321, A320, A319, and A318.

Yes, this isn't working fully. I've tried a few searches from the main 'search page' and for a selection, e.g. London Gatwick, it comes up with an error message.

Please let us know which specific entries lead to this error message. It will be helpful in trying to find a solution.

Thanks,

Why are you stuck working on this Edward? How come D.M does not have a solution for this problem?
Where did everybody go?

Hi All,

Over the course of my testing, the only entry that I find having this serious problem is the Air France listing. This brings up the white screen with the "Only search URLs generated by our search form are supported. Please return to the search form and resubmit your search" message.

London Gatwick, Boeing 777-300, etc. seem to work fine, or at least they work fine if you hit the refresh button once or twice after conducting your search.

Why am I the one working on this? Well, one of the jobs of the editors is to try to make it as easy as possible for users to find the photos they're looking for. I can't actually fix this, but I can send details bug reports to the people who can.

Regards,

Edward

Hey everyone,

We are aware of this issue, the fix will be in our next release. This is due to new security measures we have taken. But it was not our intention to introduce this bug of course. I'll push to get this into production asap.

Thanks,

Seems as though the "Top of Last 24Hours etc etc etc" on the front page isn't working either!

Can you specify this for us? You mean they don't show up on the front page of if you click on the link "Top of last 24 hours"? I can see them without any problems.

Thank you.

Right. If you put say 'LHR' into the search box on the top right hand side of the screen, an errors message comes up. It is getting beyond a joke.
