|'journalid' and 'getevents' response
||[Nov. 24th, 2011|09:44 am]
I'm attempting to write code that will retrieve the most recent few posts from someone's journal (using the flat interface), equivalent to what I'd see if I logged into my own account and then clicked on a link to their journal.
I got the impression from ljprotocol.pl and some comments here that it could be done by specifying a 'journalid' parameter in the request. If I use a request that correctly returns three of my own posts and add the 'journalid' to it, I get strange results. The return is not what I expect and is also not a normal error response. Instead the server is dumping a HTML page down the line with "Error 500!" / "Frank has been chewing on the wires" content.
1) What form should the 'journalid' take? ...the username for the requested journal or something else?
2) If I am doing something wrong, why am I getting HTML instead of an error?
3) Is there a better approach to getting what I'm looking for?
