comment OAuth2 Authentication Redirection error in PHP
Why are you redirecting to stackexchange.com/oauth/login_success? Redirect to a page on your server. Or just do a self redirect and read the URL parameters on redirect.

comment OAuth2 Authentication Redirection error in PHP
Been a while since I tried this in PHP. I don't think you need cURL or to actually redirect. Just grab the response URL. It has the access_token and that's all you need from this step of the auth process.

comment What would it take for the Stack Exchange, “Add Image” dialog to make a screen capture?
Yes, this feature request does belong on Meta Stack Exchange. It's not really about the API or about a third-party tool for SE sites -- which is what Stack Apps is about.

You should be able to do this with a Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey script using techniques from "Using HTML5/Canvas/Javascript to take screenshots".

comment How can I get unread messages for inbox testing?
Stack Exchange sites allow limited sock-puppets. Create a second account and use it to test for unread messages. I suggest you also use the formatting sandbox or answers to this question as targets for the sock posts and make it clear what you are doing. Don't try to game votes or anything dicey.

comment How can I get unread messages for inbox testing?
As I said, the question was unclear. It's apparent now that you want a way to generate these messages. Edited the question.

comment The field body_markdown is not returned for comments
Confirmed, even for fresh comments (still editable). I wonder if this was meant to be a write-only property for the comment object?

comment /revisions/{ids} returns results where revision_number is always 1
Note that the /posts/{ids}/revisions path seems to return revision_numbers that are more sensible/usable.

comment /revisions/{ids} returns results where revision_number is always 1
Sure. Each is the 1st revision with that GUID; what more do you want? :P (^_^)

This question is way too vague to be of any use. Details!? Code!? Error messages!?

comment Starred message image section in chat
Scripts are easier, but we haven't had any other requests that I know about. ... An app is basically a program or webpage that runs outside of SE site(s) (but uses SE data, in this context). A script, in this case, runs in a browser while browsing SE sites. There can be a lot of overlap between the two classifications too. PS: instead of "add the new tag", above, I meant "create the new tag".

comment How to search answers like is:answer
Confirmed that the new /search/excerpts route allows you to search answers too. Unfortunately, you still can't limit results to only answers.

There are several apps. See here, here, and here. ... Otherwise this question is currently both a duplicate of "Looking for a beginner's tutorial to using the API" and "Too broad".

This answer is currently obsolete due to the API 1.1 shutdown and the addition of new routes.
