Aha thanks, this is good to know in advance, before I start getting into the API myself. I was intending to use the ImportJSONViaPost()
function (created by Brad Jasper) to access the FatSecret REST API here. However, with this discussion in mind it looks like I will need to focus on learning how to use the ImportJSONBasicAuth()
function instead, so as to use the HTTP Basic Auth procedure instead of trying to use POST parameters. That should save me some frustration during my learning curve. Thanks again for this info.
