    Hey All, Just a quick little typo-report, on this page:
    https://ideal-postcodes.co.uk/guides/multiple-residence

    The line "Mail received by a Multiple Residece premise will be must always be rerouted internally."

    doesn't read very well from "premise will be must..."

    Thank you. I’ll feed this back

    Does anyone have suggestions/best practice/thoughts around browser auto-fill things clashing (visually) with the address lookup?

    Hey @cblanc :)
    (The Black rounded-corner is 1Password, in my case)

    @cblanc
    I trust you’re using the latest version of address finder ?
    This can be a bit of a cat and mouse game with chrome
    By default the latest version of AF applies a property called ‘autocomplete’ with value ‘none’
    Sami Greenbury
    @Patabugen
    I installed it last week but I'll check what version I'm on
    Yeah I thought I'd come and ask because I know I'd rather avoid a spaghetti-fight with that kind of thing!
    Christopher Blanchard
    @cblanc
    There may be instances where you should change it to something else
    Sami Greenbury
    @Patabugen
    I have the latest version, and those values have been added - it's just 1Password ignoring them
    (which isn't my problem to fix, as far as I'm concerned!)

    1P is a new one for me

    I saw that, the answer is basically "You can't"
    😂
    but thinking about it actually, if the user has an autocomplete in their browser then I'd actually possibly want to prioritise that over the address lookup (e.g. 1Password is trying to autofill my actual address with a single tap, which is better than AF helping me to type it in a bunch of keystrokes)
    Christopher Blanchard
    @cblanc
    Maybe a fake hidden password field somewhere 😩
    Oh I see. It’s trying to auto fill an address
    Makes sense

    Hi - is there an ETA on the wards introduced at the 5th May elections being reflected in API responses?
    Christopher Blanchard
    @cblanc
    Hi @bsoffa - sorry about the late reply. Believe it should be in the next ONSPD which I’m planning to release next week

    In case I have not explained myself fully, I am adding an example here.

    If I pass a random postcode LS10 1JG and use any random address returned from "@ideal-postcodes/address-finder", I get the below address as a sample:

    postcode: "LS10 1JG",
    post_town: "LEEDS",
    thoroughfare: "Armouries Way",
    building_name: "76 Magellan House",
    organisation_name: "",

    Now when I pass that to "uk-clear-addressing", it returns the below fields:

    line_1: "76 Magellan House"
    line_2: "Armouries Way"
    line_3: ""
    number: ""
    post_town: "LEEDS"
    postcode: "LS10 1JG"
    premise: "76 Magellan House"
    unit: ""

    I was expecting it to return "76" in either number or unit field.
    Can somebody please confirm if it is correct behaviour ?
    Please help.

    Hi there
    At first glance, it should appear in number, but...
    "building_name": "75 Magellan House”,
    "building_number": "",
    RM have opted to embed the number in the building name
    Which is why it’s not getting picked up
    Christopher Blanchard
    @cblanc
    IIRC, when the number comes at the end of the building name, that is treated like a numbered building
    Like this example:
    image.png
    I’m not too sure why RM have marked up this building this way. Not clear if there’s a intent or its just a mistake
    If they wanted a numbered building it would look like this:
    "building_name": "Magellan House”,
    "building_number": “75”,

    Having a weird issue with facebook in app browser and wondering if anyone else had seen something similar.
    We're consistently getting XHR error GET https://api.ideal-postcodes.co.uk/v1/keys/*** from people using facebook in app browser by clicking on our links in facebook. It's only facebook we're seeing this issue

    Hi there
    I’ll take a look
    First I’ve heard of it
    Jay Whittaker
    @shakyj
    Yeah, it's a weird one. I don't even know where to start fixing it
    Christopher Blanchard
    @cblanc
    Is there an easy way to replicate this?
    Jay Whittaker
    @shakyj
    We've got datadog running if you need some more browser logs etc
    Christopher Blanchard
    @cblanc
    That would be great - could you send to support@ideal-postcodes.co.uk
    Jay Whittaker
    @shakyj
    I'll try get a link off one of our marketing guys to an ad they're running and you have to click it in facebook and use their browser. I replicated it myself and watched the log but couldn't figure out the why
    Cheers. Will get some logs over
