I keep getting the same error when importing my RETS feed with WP Importer. Is there anyone who can offer assistance?

"success":"false","message":"There was an issue doing the RETS search: Illegal number in range for field [L_StatusCatID] Error in the application."

Added additional information:

URL: ""

Loginname: Jobe

Thank you very much.

You are sending "(ListingStatus=|Active)" when you need to be sending "(ListingStatus=|1)" which is the lookup's Value for active.

So I modified over to the (ListingStatus=|1) but now my error has changed to

Could not connect to RETS server: HTTP - 411 - Length Required Length Required HTTP Error 411. The request must be chunked or have a content length.

(Screenshot attached too)

Are you using POST or GET? Are you setting the Content-Length header on your request?

I am actually very new to this, so I am sure you will find it comical, but I do not know if I am using Post, Get, or setting a content header. Can you suggest any good training resources that I could sharpen my knowledge? I also really appreciate all the help you are providing.

It's funny you are getting that error now since that error should come before the one you had before if its an issue. Try changing your search query back to the original on and see if the original error returns.

I modified back to the (ListingStatus=|Active) but still got the same error message.

The 411 error? Or the original one you had?

The 411 error. Screenshot attached.

So it looks like maybe something else changed in your configuration since you made your initial attempts where you were sending (ListingStatus=|Active) since the error indications have changed. Can you please verify that your configuration is still how you initially configured it?

I disabled a few plugins and now it shows the source is good. What I would like to do is import the properties on the feed to my website. Any advice for next step?

I would suggest you set your RETS version to 1.7.2 or 1.8. I'm not really familiar with the product you are using so I wouldn't be much help.
