No, I don't have and what I am talking about is exactly documented as an example on API page  ;). Also, when you enter "difficult" in desktop version and click identify synonyms you won't get that term underlined and also won't get automatic replacement for that word, you'll have to select synonyms for "difficult" manually.I will try to contact support about this issue.

Hi, I started to receive "Your account has reached the daily query limit" today. Does it mean quotas are active again??? In fact only reason I sent a bit more requests today is I have problem to send more than 1024 bytes of data using curl post...If anybody succeeded to post larger chunk to the server using php plz let me know how do you managed to do it...

Thanks

Nothing has changed in terms of quota.  You don't have to BUY quota -- that's what that means -- but your account still has a maximum number of daily requests, and that's what you're bumping into.

If you show me the code you're using to post to the server I'll take a look.

Thanks for clarification Jon. As for code, I am using exactly your example api php code, but any string larger than ca 1500bytes seems to cause problems. It has probably something to do with Expect: 100-continue header which is sent by curl when sending larger than 1024bytes post string. Manually disabling the mentioned header using this workaround curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Expect:')); sometimes helps for strings up to 1800 bytes, however I never got response for anything larger than 2kb. It has probably something to do with how your server works with requests? Does it split them in chunks and then works on them?

Hello does the API support protected terms? Its pretty horrible when the primary keywords get spun =(

Any comment about this? It is a vital point since the keywords you ara targeting get spun and there is no way to avoid this

It doesn't work because of the 5000 character limit.

Yeah, shouldn't this limit be words and not characters??

The limit has been raised to 5,000 words.

hey....
 The API is for software developers. If you don't know what it is or how to use it, then it wasn't designed for you. TBS has had numerous updates that benefit all users, as recently as two weeks ago when the new thesaurus was released. The API is not for the general user, nor should it be.

Thanks for raising the limit Jon  :)

The Best Spinner API is now available to all current customers of The Best Spinner to use, and no longer requires you to purchase quota to query the API.

How it works is simple:

1. You pass your TBS username/password into the API and get back a session identifier.

2. You pass the session identifier into the API for each call to either identifySynonyms or replaceEveryonesFavorites, along with the text you wish to perform the query on and some optional variables.

3. The API passes back the resulting spin-formatted text.

By default, accounts are limited to 250 queries to the API per day, where a query is any call to either the identifySynonyms or replaceEveryonesFavorites functions.  Calling the API to retrieve account information or to login is not counted against your daily maximum.

For full details on how to use the API, login here using your TBS username/password:

http://thebestspinner.com/?action=login

The full documentation of the API will be presented to you.

API Q & A

Q. My software is used by multiple users.  Do the each have to own a copy of The Best Spinner?

A. Yes.  You will need to pass the TBS credentials of your users through to the API if you wish to have each individual user subtract queries from their own TBS account's daily maximum.


Q. I need more than 250 queries per day for my account.  Is that possible?

A. If you have a valid need for a higher limit, please contact support via www.AskJonLeger.com with your required daily queries, the nature of the application and the reason for needing a higher limit. We reserve the right to deny any and all requests.

Q. Since my application's users will need to purchase TBS, can I get some kind of discount for them since they'll only need it for the API?

A. If you wish to try and get a discount for your current user base, please submit all details in a ticket at www.AskJonLeger.com, including the number of users currently using your software.  We reserve the right to deny any and all requests.

Would like to know what is up with API. I purposely purchased TBS for use with WP Robot. Thought this would be easy just a plug in. After reading other posts I have to be a developer to use it correctly. Could or would anyone let me know how to incorporate TBS using wp robot or should I just ask for refund. Purchasing WP Robot said you can use TBS with with software

Hello,
Can you replace all phrase synonyms with the API?
Thanks,
Patrick

do you have any c# examples.. I understand using the httprequest and post objects..

Do you have any example of basic passing in an unspun article and receiving a spun article back? and the calls used..
And also can you pass in an unspun article and receive back an article with spin syntax included?
