Hey @edgework! Thanks for replying and clearing this up. We're already working on adding the user agent string to our API calls.

Thanks for the reply @krandor! I'd like to hold out for at least the rest of the day to see if a Dev replies or it fixes itself before doing that, but good to know the workaround is fairly simple.

Since the Scraper topic was marked "answered" but only fixes it for ComicRack users, I started this topic for the rest of us that don't use that site and still encountering issues.

Since yesterday I have been getting a 403 Forbidden error whenever I try to make an API call from my site. Putting the api URL directly in the browser will return the expected information. Just won't accept my request from the website.

I have updated the API address to comicvine.gamespot.com, used several API keys, and tested both on the live site and localhost to no avail. Same 403 error every time.

Can a ComicVine Dev please weigh in on this and let us know when this will be resolved? Or if someone has a workaround, please share.

Getting a 403 Forbidden error whenever I try to make calls to the API via my site, but if I post the url in my browser it returns data just fine.

Same?
