Solar System plugin suddn failure, 2 systems

Asked by Randy Flynn on 2018-09-10

Have been using 0.16.1 for a while now, successfully using the solar system editor plugin to enter minor planet designations which are then loaded and displayed with no problems. That was until 2 days ago, but now all searched objects can not be found.
I have tried this on two different computers that loaded the objects perfectly until two days ago. Any idea of a what may have happened or a workaround?

MPC changed the protocol for access to their website and Stellarium 0.16.1 cannot use old URL now.

As of today socket error again in version 018.2.

Working again, must have been a server issue.

Can you help with this problem?
