Parameterless searches have been disabled - FlickrNet.FlickrApiException

Like the title said

"Parameterless searches have been disabled. Please use instead. (3)"


my search options were

searchOptions.Extras = PhotoSearchExtras.All;

searchOptions.SortOrder = PhotoSearchSortOrder.Relevance;

The error says it all really. You must specify some limiting parameter (i.e. not just sort order). This means something like date parameters, tag, user id or similar.

Yep. That's just what I did. I used the date parameters.

Do you think they'll be disabling that completely?

It depends on what you are wanting to search for. You've specified the sort order as Relevance, but relevant to what? That would be used if searching with text only.

If you specify a parameter then its not a parameterless search, so wouldn't be disabled.

Right. Sorry for the confusions about that SortOrder.
