    Has anyone been able to create a custom project with the Linklicious API?

    I'm not referring to the built-in integrations w/ services like Linkpushing, BLG, etc.

    I am looking to create custom feeds and automatically add them to my Linklicious account using their API. I couldn't find any info on this online, so I emailed them asking for documentation. They sent me a Word document with the API "documentation" -- which is literally 5 sentences and complete trash.

    Was hoping someone else has had luck and could either share code or answer some basic questions. Thanks.

    You don't have to do anything with linkpushing as we have an API with linklicious that sends all your urls to them for you.

    Yea, I'm not referring to the partnering services, like your linkpushing. (Great service btw!) I was able to add that easily.

    I'd like to use their API directly to import my own links to ping. However, can't seem to figure out how.

    Their documentation says to post the API request to linklicious[dot]me/api.ashx. However, that doesn't seem to be a legit URL. I also change the extension from ashx to aspx. Still no dice.

    Can you share some of your code for linklicious API integration?

    I don't have that myself and my partner who handles all that stuff is on vacation.

    I'll shoot him an email and see if he can help you out.

    He's the technician in our business... I am merely the idea guy.

    api.ashx is a legit file, I use a couple of APIs, not for linklicious, that also call this file on their servers so I doubt that's the issue.

    Can you be more specific about what you're doing while you're trying to integrate it?

    Sure. I'm just trying to submit a list of links using PHP.

    Can you share some PHP code on how you're calling the api.ashx w/ those other APIs?

    I've something simple like...
    $stuff = file_get_contents("http_//linklicious_me/api.ashx?api=<myapikey>")

    and $stuff comes back with an HTML error page

    Thanks.

    Try it like this instead, maybe as simple as a couple typos:

    Code:
    $stuff = file_get_contents('http://linklicious.me/api.ashx?api=<myapikey>')
    If not I'll dig it up and look at what code I have, but I think those _ in your URL shouldn't be like that, not sure though, I'm no PHP expert I usually Google sample code and edit it to suit my needs.

    Yea, I only put in those underscores, because I'm not allowed to insert actual URLs in my posts (they got cuffs on me here, lol).

    For most APIs, I use code like the above to get a response back (usually in XML format), which I can easily parse.

    If you go to the actual link itself through your browser, it also throws a custom page not found error, which what led me to believe the link isn't even correct in the first place.

    Well, it wasn't me that sent it, but Its the same API Documentation we have sent to countless xrummer vendors on this forum and on warrior forum as well as to mini companies sick submitter and we have received any complaints so far...its pretty easy to follow. There is only 5 lines because...well...thats all there is. The guy that sent it is on vacation for awhile, if you can't figure it out sent me an email and Ill see who I can get it to. :)


    Looks like you're not posting the variables you're supposed to so you're not getting the response you're expecting. Read the documentation again and it should it work.
