Yahoo Update Problem 3.0b6 (8 posts)

    I went to Yahoo and set up an application ID and copied it into the Sitemaps plug-in, but every time I update my sitemaps, I get the following error:

    "There was a problem while notifying YAHOO"

    Now I noticed that when signing up for a Yahoo! application Id, they give you several options, and I chose the unauthenticated one. Is that wrong? Or is there something else going on with the plug-in?

    Google postings work fine.

    I get the same error message.
    Like technabob I also chose the generic unauthenticated option.

    Hi,

    could you tell me the response of the following page with your API key and sitemap url?

    http://search.yahooapis.com/SiteExplorerService/V1/updateNotification?appid=YOUR_API_KEY&url=YOUR_SITEMAP_URL

    Best regards,

    Arne

    I actually get a success message when I post directly:

    <Success>
    <Message>Update notification has successfully submitted.</Message>
    </Success>

    <!--
    ws01.search.re2.yahoo.com compressed/chunked Thu Feb 1 06:23:19 PST 2007
    -->

    And now that I look at your plugin today, I see this message: "YAHOO was successfully notified about changes."

    So I'm assuming something was wrong on Yahoo!s end.

    Hello, there is a little update on the versioning inconsistences of this plugin ... I have updated the post.
