Singned up and listed two $1 auctions. Signup process when OK and it accepted my mobile number.

Adding pictures to the auction does not seem to work. When I select them, they upload but dont seem to get added to the auction ...

Lets see what happens

Password recovery mechanism is sending a plain text password. We all know what that means. Great.

Wow. Just wow. If there's a SQL injection vulnerability on Wheedle (and seriously, there must be one somewhere, with so bad development practices) that spells doom.

I'll give you a hint.  If you add an apostrophe to any input, any input at all, it bounces you to the 404 not found page.  But not the ASP.NET 404 page, it redirects you to /Views/Shared/404.aspx - this indicates to me they are bouncing you based on the presence of the apostrophe, rather than cleaning or parameterising input.  You can't even search for something with an apostrophe in it!

(Edit: or a hyphen for that matter.   You can't search for anything with a hyphen in it.  Good lord this site fails on so many levels).

Well, in the search box near the top of the page it actually removes "special characters" onkeyup.

EDIT: and that function is part of a huge bunch of script on the page! In the middle of that bunch (those bunches?) there are chunks of commented out scripts. Obviously page speed is not a priority for these guys...

Aw crud.  It only bounces you to the 404 not found page if there's one apostrophe.  If there's two apostrophes, the input is accepted.  Methinks that 404 not found page is also the default error page for... oh, I don't know... SqlException?

Password length is 19 chars max, yet the field is 20 chars long.

Didnt like some characters in it.

Already looking like a failure at that point.

edit:

registered, took the confirmation number that I was emailed, and now everytime I log in I just get sent to

https://www.wheedle.co.nz/Views/Shared/404.aspx

and am not logged in.

I really hope that Wheedle read this page and actually hire some developers who know what they're doing (instead of truck drivers copying and pasting..??) There needs to be decent competition to TM and I was hoping this would be it Embarassed

Is there an apostrophe in your password?  If so, you're causing an SqlException when you log in.  Otherwise, you're causing some other kind of Exception.

mind you there is still a way to recover this ... but if they spent X millions creating this legless piece of wood ... the need to spend another 2-10x more to beat TM!

Another case of corporate marketing deadlines exceeding realistic delivery timeframes.
