API v2.0 BUG: Scraping infos using DVD order

Postby Headhunter » Fri May 11, 2018 8:53 am

In some series when scraping infos using DVD order instead of Aired order some episodes are missing or have invalid season/episode numbers.

Either whole "episode" elements are missing in the XML data returned by the ParseEpisodeList API function or the elements exists, but have invalid season/episode numbers. It seems the API function does not auto-fill the missing infos with fallback data, like the old API did.

See the following post for details:
