hi mods,

Is it possible to modify the search function so that the search terms are supplied in the url like google and other search engines do instead of the standard "POST" method?

I know there are quite some firefox (browser) users here, and firefox has a nifty search box in it's user interface where you can type the search term and you are directed to the results immediately. However this works by replacing the search terms in the url by variables, which doesn't work for cgtalk now because of this "POST" method.

Would be great..

Hm.

Doing stuff like this:

http://www.cgtalk.com/search.php?action=simplesearch&query=blender

"Works" but with returns no results. You'll probably have to view the source of the main search page (with all of the text boxes and whatnot) to see what it expects. It's probably just trying to do a search of no forums for no time for that string - but there doesn't look to be anything in the code stopping it.

Let me know how you go :)
