Getting too many deleted tasks (PHP)

Dear support,

I'm trying to get my application to get deleted tasks from Toodledo (other functionality works). Whenever I do so it gives me every deleted tasks in the past two or so months, regardless of me only requesting tasks more recently deleted. Did I make an error in my code somewhere or is this a problem with Toodledo?

//the relevant part of my code is this
$lastsync=1457099741; //timestamp for a few days ago
if ($data[lastdelete_task] > $lastsync){

$data = $toodledo->getResource("http://api.toodledo.com/3/tasks/deleted.php?access_token=$access_token&after =$lastsync",$access_token);

Regards,

Jens Nielsen

It looks like you have a space in the URL. It should be "&after=$lastsync" instead of "after =$lastsync"

Indeed there was a space. Probably the space turned up in a pasting error, I don't see it in my own code. My current string is pasted below, but still gives deleted tasks with timestamps older than $since. Any other ideas?

$data = $toodledo->getResource("http://api.toodledo.com/3/tasks/deleted.php?access_token=$access_token&after =$since",$access_token);

Ok, I think I know the problem now.

First, you should use https. But thats not the issue. I believe you are using the sample code from our github account to do the getResource() call. This was made for the demo and only supports simple queries. If you look inside that function and log the $url that is being sent to our API you'll probably see the mistake. There are probably two question marks in the URL. It should be simple to alter this so it works. If you want a dirty way to get it working try this:

$data = $toodledo->getResource("http://api.toodledo.com/3/tasks/deleted.php",$access_token."&after=$since");
