  • [Forum] 4.0 Search via URL parameters instead of form post?

    My forum users used to be able to search via customized url...they used that as signature entries to link to search results for all of their posts that appeared in my gallery or finished maps forum...here's an example:

    Code:
    http://forum.cartographersguild.com/search.php?do=finduser&u=1165&starteronly=1&forumchoice%5B%5D=36
    The above URL in 3.8 will search for all threads started by user 1165 in the forum with id 36. This no longer really works.

    Is there a list somewhere of search.php url parameters?

    You need the contenttype in there.
    Code:
    search.php?do=finduser&u=1165&starteronly=1&forumchoice[]=36&contenttype=vBForum_Post

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

        I think Wayne wrote something that listed all the different search paramenters for 3.x. I don't think it's been updated to 4.0 though. You can easily find them yourself by just reading the code and seeing which parameters are 'cleaned' at the top of the section.

          Is there a way to use this string to search all subforums instead of inputting each one by one?

            I think you would need to list the forumids.
