Thread: Discogs Keyword search function no longer working properly

  1. #1

    Cool Discogs Keyword search function no longer working properly

    I sent this as an e-mail to Andrei, but I was wondering if anyone else is bummed by this...

    Discogs did a major update of their website recently and changed their layout a lot. When they did that, I noticed that I lost the search by keywords function on the OrangeCD when adding from Discogs. Before the Discogs update, we could search by barcode or by release ID number, but now this gives us no results.

    Any chance we could get an update to the software again so that we regain this functionality?

    Best wishes from far-off Taiwan!

    Hi again Andrei,

    Looks like I spoke too soon. It works to search using keywords again, but just a heads up, it still doesn't properly find the item by catalogue number.

    Go to discogs and do a search for "spring 3" and you will find this item: [url]http://www.discogs.com/See-See-All-Too-Tired/release/2942031[/url]

    Do the same search using the keywords function within orangeCD and you get a million items, but not that one. Very odd.
    If you do the search using quotes.. "spring 3" ...you get an artist called spring (3) but you don't get the release with that catalogue number.

    Looks like there is still some issue with functionality. When trying to find information to enter in my database, I often used the bar code in order to get the exact release... now it's just impossible.

    Good luck!!

    Andrei:

    I am having the same problem with inability to authorize Orange CD to use Discogs. I downloaded the .exe file that you posted above on 11.16 and my virus scan found a virus in the file. Can you provide a clean copy?

    Thanks

    There is no virus in the package. It's a false positive. The installer software we use (Inno Setup) is known for producing false positives in some antivirus scanners. It's a problem with antivirus software, not with installer package.

    I'm working on final build today and will update the website soon with another installer. Thanks for your patience

    UPD New build is available on downloads page.

    Downloaded the latest version and after attempting to authorize my Discogs account the same blank white screen appears as in the old release.

    Any ideas on what the issue could be now

    Thanks
