discogs search does not work

I tried the Test branch, but discogs search for a barcode does not seem to work.

e.g. barcode 028940003127 is fine on their website, but it is not found in gcstar.
https://www.discogs.com/de/search/?type … ;format=CD

btw if I chose musicbrainz this works fine.

Re: discogs search does not work

On Windows 10 and Linux Mint, I get 5 results on Discogs for that barcode. What is you OS?

Could you post the GCstar's log messages?

Re: discogs search does not work

for more information here is the log of what happens when I click on message box "not found" -> search on other site -> musicbrainz

Code:

musicbrainz then works OK. It finds 2 entries (both are correct with different release dates)

Re: discogs search does not work

I think you put the EAN code in the Title field. The Musicbrainz API seems to be able to accommodate with it but not the strictier Discogs API.

Re: discogs search does not work

Thanks for adding EAN search in title field on the Test branch. Works fine for me. I think putting the barcode in the wrong field happened because title field is highlited automatically when adding a new album.

It's great to see you are so active in development smile
