DoggNZ: Hmmm...Apostrophe's (and all other punctuation) disappear when you type them in the search box now. What about if I wanted to search for say...Lost at Sea by Bryan Lee O'Malley ? Does Wheedle hate the Irish??


There are suspicions that it's to sanitise input data to prevent SQL Injections - done on the client side O_o...

Read my blog for some bad security scenarios.

And their current implementation of it client side (because it is based on keyup for the search box) is easily gotten around without any real hastle at all.

That search box is one of the most likely possibilities for SQL injection. There are a few others, but that search box is so simple.

Have also found blacklisting doesn't work, you just get "Member not found"

I agree they haven't had the best start, and things look pretty rough, though apart from the security issues, they are things which can be resolved fairly quickly. Trademe hasn't had a perfect history either. I hope they get the issues sorted quickly, as it would be nice to have a decent NZ Owned auction site. The fee's increase on TM have me a little upset and so long as I can import my products from TM I'll stick with them a little while and see what happens. If TM wanted to kill them, they could do so, by reversing their decision to increase their fees and release a little spin to say they heard what people have said about the fee's increase and have decided to listen to their valued clients and they would be back in peoples good books mostly.

http://www.wheedle.co.nz/Search/ItemDetails?id=3608

The action doesn't appear in the 'other' list...

http://www.wheedle.co.nz/Search/List?Category=131&Level=2

So if this action doesn't appear in the list, then what others also don't?

There's also talk about how it's only $1 to list...  yet on TM it's only 55c to list.  Yes, you pay when you sell, but what if you want to list two dozen products knowing that many won't sell?

Are people realistically going to spend money to list products if they're not going to sell?

Are people going to bother listing if their listings just don't show up in the listings?

So, I was waiting for my photos to load for my trade for the past hour or so. Nothing showing, although it appeared they were uploading. I assumed Wheedle were vetting them but this was taking too long.
I was using Firefox so switched to Explorer. This worked and I now have photos. It was not completely successful as the photos didn't list/display as they loaded - just delete icons displaying in mid-screen as each loaded - presumably to delete a photo not displayed but there somewhere. According to the instructions I should have been able to tick the main pic but this did not happen.
So, Wheedle don't seem to have tested this with Firefox. And Explorer is not quite working correctly but does at least load photos.
My only big complaint so far - apart from the security issues mentioned above which may yet prove to be serious. Oh, I am a little concerned about the non-vetting of photos by new users - could be nasty.
