Custom Web Search

Has anyone been able to create a custom web search for this web site?

Where it will take the name from RM8 and do a search? If so would you be willing to share it?


I don’t think it is possible with WebSearch because there is no visible URL containing the search query. WebSearch needs that for its setup. Maybe someone could do a deep dive into the page and figure it out from the Java or whatever or log the traffic with the server and pick it out, if it’s there, but it seems like it would be a needle in a haystack.

I think you’re right just checking. To figure it out is above my pay grade.

At worst you could just add the web link to their search page - I do that for freereg. At least it makes it quicker to get there.

I had a look and concluded that there was no mechanism that I could extract from the source code so I contacted the developer. He came back with an encouraging response having had some prior interest in making Linkpendium work with RootsMagic. However, he needs to modernize the system first as some open-source components are out-of-date. Then he could add a search portal using the URL query that RM supports.
