Yes, it is true. If serving pages via https, and you have in your code requests to http, you will get warnings about mix

This is absolutely silly. What can possibly be the issue here? With Let's Encrypt, one can even get a free certificate.

It really is important that this be taken care of ASAP. We have begun switching all sites over to total https. And with https://letsencrypt.org/ it is cheap. In fact, many server configs can utilize their service in an automatic way. No good reason not to.

2017-01-08 10:10:40 -0500 commented answer NEREN META update 1-4-17, Major Issues

Reflecting on the initial switch and now this update, I decided best route is to develop a script to handle new columns. It checks DB columns to incoming data,and if column count shows new columns,it isolates new columns(array_diff),metadata lookup on them,and inserts them with correct attributes

Thanks Clif. This is really a joke. Never have seen such poor support on an API or anything like this. Maybe I'll post up a basic PHP/MySQL list for others.

2017-01-05 13:39:28 -0500 asked a question NEREN META update 1-4-17, Major Issues

I, once again, am pulling what little hair I have out.

Thank you for the email, and the link to the list, https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-Ij...

But, there are major issues here.

First, as previously posted, System names CharX_X incorrect, needs to have LM_ or what have you prepended. It makes a difference

Second, LM_Char50_17 (Cable Company) and LM_Char50_18 (Fuel Company) (Both had char50 not Char50) and LM_DateTime_11 are already there (Residential) So, how do we deal with this? Are they now Deeds?

Third, I have only gotten through residential, but, there are a LOT of missing fields in this list. 1. LM_char50_22 2. LM_char50_24 3. LM_char10_74 4. LO1_Char50_8 5. LO1_Char50_9 6. LO1_Char50_10 7. LO1_Char100_3 8. LO2_Char50_8 9. LO2_Char50_9 10. LO2_Char50_10 11. LO2_Char100_3 12. LO3_Char50_8 13. LO3_Char50_9 14. LO3_Char50_10 15. LO3_Char100_3 16. SO1_Char50_8 17. SO1_Char50_9 18. SO1_Char50_10 19. SO1_Char100_3 20. SO3_Char50_8 21. SO3_Char50_9 22. SO3_Char50_10 23. SO3_Char100_3

UNREAL!

OK, got through residential. Cost my customer a lot more than it should have. I would have downloaded META, but in the past, it was inaccurate in char length that I am too afraid to go that approach.

Well, started on commercial sales, I'm seeing a column difference of 21. I only see 2 in the list. I am out of time today. And now need to to do what should be really a 10-15 minute update, not almost 2 hours just for one type, for the others.

I am not looking forward explaining this bill to my client.

NEED TO DO A LOT BETTER FOLKS

You are correct. But, I am finding a lot more issues than that. New post coming.

In your SerachQuery above, shouldn't ResidentialProperty be RE_1?

I believe this was a question before, but, why download? You can use their URL to fetch. Media property also provides caption and description. You'll save a ton of server disk space.

2016-09-27 12:31:42 -0500 answered a question RETS Code: 20206

Don't use AND. Use a comma Like $query = "({$rets_modtimestamp_field}={$previous_start_time}+),(L_State=ME,NH),(L_StatusCatID=1,3)";

Looks like a MS Word paste. Should be cleaned at insertion.

Thank you. It still seems very long adding to database size and page size and I wonder the need. Oh well.

My heart dropped when I saw this after an update. Was just about having enough confidence to show my client. We really need proactive communications and support, not reactive. 1 step forward, two steps back.

2016-09-20 13:49:21 -0500 asked a question Photo URL Length

Currently, I am pulling photo URLs off of GetObject, and they are quite long.

Example: http://cdnparap60.paragonrels.com/Par...

Is this normal?

I am trying to access Media, bot I am not authorized. Not sure if they are shorter there.

Thanks

On my last download, it seems like some high rez photos are available.

LOL, yah, wait until you rebuild a table, then go to update, and the server is down, then you have to rebuild your table again. Have fun!

2016-09-15 11:21:45 -0500 asked a question NNEREN Room Types - LM_char5_14 - 30+

Will room types always be in the same location. As in LM_char5_14 will always be Master Bedroom? Or do we need to develop a detection script for this?

2016-09-15 10:11:54 -0500 commented answer NNEREN LM_Char_30_7 inexplicably removed from RETS

I really think they need to push back the live date. I am having to rebuild tables all the time, and the metadata for character count is all wrong. <sigh>
