|0000788||GeoSetter||Image Data||public||2011-03-28 14:53||2011-03-29 20:59|
|Status||resolved||Resolution||no change required|
|Product Version||3.4.23 beta|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000788: Error when trying to retreive place name information|
|Description||Altough I activated my own account with GeoNames, I still cannot get access to their data when trying to retrieve names etc.|
I just installed the latest beta release of GeoSetter.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I'm also working with the latest Beta version (3.4.22) with an own GeoNames Account. I have no problems receiving data from GeoNames.
Do you get an error message? Or do you get a timeout?
I get the eror message: "user account not enabled to use the free webservice. (etc)" When I go to the geonames site I am logged in. What should I do more? I must be missing something, obviously. One of the fields is filled out with one of my email addresses, nothing else. Seeing that I am logged in, I do not see what else to do.
PS. I seem to have 2 accounts at geonames. Could that be the reason it doesn't work?
You can read the solution in the error message itself :-)
"Please enable it on your account page: http://www.geonames.org/manageaccount"
Login at GeoNames and change to the URL above. Here you can activate your account for the free web services.
Thanks! I am sort of blind - a special form of dyslexia! I completely missed the line saying that I had to activate teh account. Must be my advanced age...
It works now.
