Suggestion: multiple input fields in search templates

Post by quinncom » Sun Jun 28, 2009 3:27 pm

It would be useful to allow multiple input fields when executing a search query template. For example, I would like to be able to enter the query and the username to search flickr.com. The URL for such a search, specified in LaunchBar with positional parameters, would be:

http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=$1&q=$2

A more complex example would be to create new tickets in our project management system by submitting a GET request containing all the necessary fields to do so:

http://projects.strangecode.com/newticket.php?type=$1&owner=$2&summary=$3&priority=$4

Hmmmm?

I would really appreciate this, too. For searches at local.ch, the Swiss online directories has 2 fields, one for the name and one for the city.
