modo community forum search template

Postby AlexK » Thu Jun 12, 2014 2:02 pm

Hi everyone,

I am trying to get a search template to work for http://community.thefoundry.co.uk/discussion/search.aspx. But I cannot figure out if it is possible at all. The site seems to do some under the hood Javascript thing. Is it possible to create a search query for that?

Hi Alex,

I'm also a MODO community member so I have had the same need for quite a long time. Unfortunately the forum search function uses the POST method - basically the search query/parameters are not passed through the page URL (GET method) so you must enter them in the appropriate search page and submit the form on that page.

As far as I know there is no way for making Launchbar perform this kind of searches - even if on this thread http://forums.obdev.at/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1262 there is some info - however I wasn't able to make it work.

What I currently use is a custom search with Google's site search function, and I must say it works pretty well - most of the time even better than the forum's built-in search :-)

Here is the search template:

Code: Select all

http://www.google.com/search?q=site:community.thefoundry.co.uk+*


Also, you could find useful the search templates for the MODO online help system:

MODO 701:

Code: Select all

http://docs.luxology.com/modo/701/help/search/search.html?zoom_query=*


MODO 801

Code: Select all

http://docs.luxology.com/modo/801/help/search/search.html?zoom_query=*


Best,

Marco

Hi Marco,

that tip with the POST action sounds like the right path, but I am unable to get it to work either. I'll give the Google Site search route a try.

Also thanks for the documentation templates. I am already using those. :)
