when i make a specific search on ebay and copy the link in the address bar:
http://shop.benl.ebay.be/i.html?nkw=suske%20en%20wiske&fln=1&npmv=3&ssov=1&trksid=p3286.c0.m282&LHSellerType=2

The i go to the searchmanager and add a search with URL LOAD as the search type and i paste this url then I enable it and select it and hit search. It doesnt work. After a few searches it even sometimes changes the grayed out ‘search type’ pull down menu to ‘text search’.

Does anybody have this feature working ?

I used to use this a lot (it fact this was the only type of search I use). However, I now find that it has stopped working, and if I look in the error log there is an entry there which suggests it can find something on the page. I submitted an error log yesterday through the application (although I have no feedback on whether it was received or not).

eBay changed something again, now their URLs have a different nomenclature.
So adding items with a “drag and drop” (I use to select several URLs from a seller’s listing or a search result and drag them into JBW window) from an eBay webpage doesn’t work anymore too.

Old URL : http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?MfcISAPICommand=ViewItem&item=350486291039
New URL : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Karuraoh-Super-Famicom-SNES-Japanese-version-rare-game-/350486291039?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item519a9c625f

correct. The drag and drop no longer works for me either :(

Yup, drag and drop is not working, I had just changed to firefox 6 and thought that was the problem…very frustrating when you want to add multiple auctions, at least “copy link location”, then paste works.

But drag and drop does work in a very old EI 6, even with the new URL.

My temporary workaround… may be useful if you add a bunch of items otherwise I guess it’s better to do it one by one.

I look at a search result or at a shop listing : http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?nkw=DIN-8+male+-mini&sacat=0&_odkw=DIN-8+male&osacat=0&trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

I select what I’m interested to and paste it into a text file, for instance :

I select the column with item numbers (with ALT key in Notepad++) :

I paste in an HTML file just after the first “=” :

It gives :

Greetings,
eBay changed the format of item URLs; I’m working on fixing it, and I have a pre-release available from https://jbidwatcher.lighthouseapp.com/projects/8037/tickets/1403-time-left-na#ticket-1403-10 (That ticket is a different one, but I’m trying to solve a few problems at once with the next release.)

You complete me.

Speaking of complete – items are not moving to the completed tab on this prerelease…

I’m seeing the same thing. Anyone know if the pre-release will update to the next official version or do I have to manually update?
