Suggestion: Search within results

Post by mjpell » Fri Oct 22, 2010 12:35 pm

Could we search within the current results?

And how about being notified when items are posted. Say I'm looking for a "left handed widget", and find none today. Would be awesome to be notified if someone listed an ad for "left handed widget".

Thanks for a great site! I use if frequently, and tell anyone who is interested in CL ads.

Hi Mike,

What do you mean by search within the results? You can use your browser to search for a text string within the current page. Or you could add keywords or what have you to your search to narrow it further. There isn't a specific 'search within results' function, but maybe if you give me a better idea of what you hope to accomplish I can suggest something. (Or understand the need any maybe develop something.)

As for notifications, your best bet is RSS feeds. They will keep you continually updated of the newest postings for your search. Just click the RSS Feeds link at the top-right of the results page; I give detailed instructions on how to set it up in case you haven't used RSS before.
