It seems that the new store breaks the built-in search templates in LB.. anyone know the correct ones?

LaunchBar 4.2 already addresses this issue.

The "Search iTunes Store" template changed to:

Code: Select all

itms://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZSearch.woa/wa/?term=*

All other iTunes search templates (Search for Album, Artist, etc.) didn't change, they should still work.

doesn't work. None of them do. I get the error:

An error occured.

The iTunes Store could not process your request, please try again later.


I can search within iTunes itself... so that is working. Just the external URL search doesn't.

Work's fine here. What happens when you click the following link?

Works for me too in LB 4.2 beta 1. It was broken in earlier versions though.

when i click the link from here it works - when i add it to LB, and search from within LB i get the error...

im using LB 4.2b1

Wait. i just discovered the problem:

I went to LB's configuration to Search Templates... found the iTMS template, double clicked on the details, erased and added the code u provided... SAVED. Closed window.

When i went BACK to the config window for templates, it had reverted back to the old code that was in the details... LB is not saving changes... it's reverting.

When i created a NEW entry for iTMS called "TT" and added your code, it worked.

For the record the old code was:

Code: Select all
