The recent changes to search ebay feature results in a large amount of "No items found on eBay." even when there are items.

I notice this occurs when the search includes ":" or other punctuations or when the default search omits words from the game name.

For example:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekbay/searchitem/thing/106895

"Quarriors! Rise of the Demons" default searches "Quarriors! Rise Demons"

Unless the "!" and "Demons" is removed or "of the" is added the search will fail.

Prior to the change, the default search would display results as expected.

Can this search functionality be updated or reverted to how it previously functioned?

Please and thank you in advance.

P.S. I do love the new inclusion of the picture from the auction!

We updated to use eBay's new "Finding API" since the old one was deprecated. I'll look into the punctuation issue - shouldn't be too hard to fix. You can also click on the images to add them.

I tried this feature and it just highlights the item but does not add them.

I had the same result in Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer.

I think this would be a great feature/improvement...I've missed clicking on that check box on numerous attempts.

Thanks for the quick fix on the search and for constantly maintaining and updating this wonderful site!

Hmm.. I just tried it, and they are Saving for me. I'll double check my code though and see if there's anything I can find.

Same


Same here (Firefox). It says "Saving", but when I check afterwards, the links aren't there. If I add the same links by ticking the checkbox rather than clicking the image, it works properly.

I don't know if you changed anything, but it is working for me now.

This is a great time saving feature!

Thanks You!!!
