It seems like ebay changed the login page again:

  • I just tested the following patch and esniper seems to be happy again:
    Index: auction.c

    Although the patch fixes the problem in your case, it doesn't seem to be a good concept in general. The page title looks as if it depends on your interests or preferences.
    It would be better to find a setting to display one of the expected pages after login.

     
  • I agree. I am still trying to figure out how to change it. It was working just fine the day before. The Patch was more of a proof of concept than a good fix. Any ideas on how to change the first page after login back to a "My ebay" page?

    I just had a quick look but did not find any obvious setting yet.

     
  • Hmm, looks like there are now 5 duplicates of this, all showing the same page ID

    At least the page titles are very similar (with or without "Online Shopping") and your patch should work for all of them. Before creating a new version I want to check if eBay's changes allow esniper to recognize a failed login.

    patch worked for me. My greetings page title looks like this:
    Electronics, Cars, Fashion, Collectibles, Coupons and More Online Shopping | eBay

    Patch worked for me too. Additionally, I reset my password to be incorrect and restarted esniper. I got the Login failed error message as expected.

    Thanks for testing a failed login. I will prepare a new version that includes the patch.
