Hi everyone, I'm trying to get a wms link working in M8 (got working in M9 no problem). Here's the url..
The link works when entered in the dialogue box, and shows the one available layer, which is selected. However, when I open the linked image, no result shows....any ideas?

So why use 8? You left that out.
I have a number of projects created in 8, and when I import them into 9 it seems as though they will require a lot of work to get looking how I would like in the layouts. The options are not there in 9 yet for things like a grid, center lat/lon etc in display....so I just keep it in 8.
The server declares that it supports multiple output formats. 9 chooses image/png which works. 8 chooses image/gif which does not, the server returns binary data of size zero.
The problem is technically with the server - it should either start returning valid image/gif data or stop declaring that it can do so.
Ok, thanks Adam, I'll give up trying.
You can re-route the server through your own and edit the capabilities document to exclude the image/gif format which it evidently does not support. That is, play man in the middle. Here's one open source tool that can do this:
We will consider allowing to specify the image format explicitly in 9, to help with such cases, there are other servers that do this. Right now, 9 is almost as vulnerable as 8 is, if the server didn't properly support the format that 9 chosen, we'd see nothing in 9 either.
Plus, of course, we are working to extend 9 to have everything 8 has. :-)
