Support » Plugin: AppStore Lookup for WordPress » App ID not found error message

  • Resolved jlcoleman71


    This app works great, but I’ve come across a situation where I list several apps on one page (with short code linking to each) and if one of these apps is no longer available in the app store I get the following message:

    That app ID was not found.535132757

    This wouldn’t be too big of an issue, except it stops the entire page from loading…..I get the header, menu and the message above showing, but nothing else on the page, so it basically locks up the entire site.

    Is there a way that when this error is triggered, maybe the message is displayed, but not disrupt the rest of the page from loading properly? What if it came across this message, then maybe you could redirect it to another page on the site as a default, similar to a 404 not found error?

    Hm, good point. That error message will definitely cause problems in the post loop.

    I will push out an update this week that will make that message a little more friendly and stop it from breaking everything.

    Hey jcoleman71,

    In version 1.3.2, a missing appId will no longer cause the page to stop loading. Instead, we’ll now load around it as though all is well, and any content will just be left blank.

    It doesn’t redirect to a 404; in the post loop or list of apps (as you have) that would make it redirect the entire page if one app id was mistyped or the app pulled from the store. The rest of the content on that page would be unavailable until you removed the shortcode, and there would be no clear indication of what app id was the issue.

    A future version will likely include some sort of error logging to notify the site admin when app ids are not working.

    Hope this helps!
