Feed API Warning


#1

Be careful when creating your own feed item. On my first attempt at creating my own feed item I sent up an SVG file (I assume this is the issue) as the image URL and now my app crashes at launch.

Currently waiting for a specialist to take a look to get access back :neutral_face:


#2

Turns out it wasn’t the SVG image, all attempts to create a feed item have crashed my app so far now.


#3

Just sent this feed in and my Android app crashes:

{
“account_id”: “”,
“type”:“basic”,
“url”: “https://www.google.co.uk”,
“params[title]”: “My custom item”,
“params[image_url]”: “https://i.imgur.com/sLM61uf.jpg”,
“params[background_color]”: “#FCF1EE”,
“params[body_color]”: “#FCF1EE”,
“params[title_color]”: “#333”,
“params[body]”: “Some body text to display”
}

[edit] both through my own client as form data and through the playground as the above json

Seems like it doesn’t like one of the colours, possibly the abbreviated #333


#5

Yep, replaced #333 from the example with a 6 character hex code and it works :grinning:
