getMagArticleDataByMagArticleID

Brings back the "common data" of a magazine article of which you know the unique Mag Article ID. The Mag Article ID for an article is revealed by a call to getMagazineReviewQuotesByItemID. If that call does not bring back all of the information you require then you may consider a call to this. Note that this call does not bring back the article itself; for that you require getMagArticleTxtByMagArticleID.

To get the common data of a magazine article, substitute [mag_article_id] into the following URL:

http://www.everygamegoing.com/api/v1/getMagArticleDataByMagArticleID/[mag_article_id]

Hitting this URL will return the following JSON response:

{
	"response":
	{
		"mag_article_title":"ACE (Cascade Games)",
		"mag_article_byline":"",
		"section_id":"action_test",
		"author_name":"CB",
		"mag_language":"English",
		"mag_name":"Amstrad Action",
		"issue_vol_txt":"Amstrad Action #18",
		"mag_id":21,
		"mag_issue_id":1211,
		"mag_article_id":26391,
		"scores":
		{
			"Grab Factor":"58%",
			"Graphics":"48%",
			"Sonics":"24%",
			"Staying Power":"48%",
			"Overall":"54%"
		}
	}
}

 
Whilst many of the key->value pairs in the response may be self-explanatory, the following table gives a little more information on what the key designates. (If you are showing articles provided by Everygamegoing on your own site, you will likely be most interested in the scores array!)
