Hi all,

 

I created a script (with the use of Zend's framework) last year which has been working fine, but suddenly today, it decided to misbehave.

 

The query searches for any calendar events with '[_]' in the title.

 

$query->setQuery('"[_]"');

 

This has been working fine for the past year as I mentioned but suddently it doesn't like looking for those particular characters in such a specific phrase.

 

I checked the api was still working by using the same query but with a specified word in it, and it did retrieve relevant results.

 

$query->setQuery('test');

 

Any one got any suggestions in order to make it look for those particular characters? Google have clearly changed something.

 

Many thanks,

 

Alex

I fixed this issue by approaching it from a different angle.

 

I just submitted an empty query which in turn loaded ALL results. 

 

I then filtered the results serverside, bypassing google's crappy search.
