What happened to photo comments?
Until recently, about a month or two, we used to get photo descriptions entered by agents on the rets feed. The "media" feed indicates you support media data for residential and land feeds, but when requested those feeds return "not found" on the properties. This happens for all properties, including one I have personally listed... so I know they are there.
Why does paragon allow agents to enter descriptions for photos if you are not going to continue to support that feature through the rets feed.
What changed in the last 6-8 weeks to bring this feature down?
Thanks Lawrence M. Beyl, Ph.D.
We'll need more information to help you. What is the MLS you are working with? Do you have a sample listing ID with photos that have descriptions?
Still waiting for more information to help you with this issue.
If you can provide us with the MLS or RETS login URL you are using and sample listings with the issue you are referring to we can help.
valleymls in huntsville al, try the listing 1014115...
comments used to show up on doing the rets feed for media... fetching the media table I read Array ( [L_Class] => Class(Class_1) [L_Type_] => Type(Type_1) [L_Area] => County(Area) [L_AddressNumber] => Address Number() [L_AddressSearchNumber] => Address Search Number() [L_AddressDirection] => Address Direction() [L_AddressStreet] => Address Street() [L_Address2] => Unit #() [L_City] => City(City_Lkp_1) [L_State] => State(State) [L_ListAgent1] => Listing Agent() [L_ListOffice1] => Listing Office() [L_StatusDate] => Status Date() [L_UpdateDate] => Update Date() [L_DisplayId] => MLS #() [LV_vow_include] => Appear on Internet(VowLookup) [LV_vow_avm] => VOW: Allow AVM?(VowLookup) [L_IdxInclude] => IDX Include(IdxInclude) [L_LastDocUpdate] => Doc Timestamp() [L_Address] => Address() [L_Status] => Status(StatDetail) [MED_listing_media_id] => Media ID() [MED_listing_media_type_id] => MediaTypeID() [MED_sequence] => Sequence() [MED_media_url] => Media Url() [MED_caption] => Caption() [MED_description] => Description() [MED_file_size] => File Size() [MED_width] => Width() [MED_height] => Height() [MED_duration] => Duration() [MED_create_dt] => Create Date() [MED_update_dt] => Update Date() ) but on fetching the media listing... not found!
We access paragon through Bridge Interactive... and it makes no sense that you have a descriptor feed... but no data ... (more)
My problem is now resolved... it appears there was a change in the RETS fields used to acquire the photo comments and that L_DisplayId is now the proper way to acquire the comments... changed from L_ListingId which is used every other place in the system until the media class. THANKS for the help
