Feedster :: URL Api

This document outlines Feedster's current (and future) URL api.  It was written to address the morass of different url query variables that are currently sprouting like mushrooms within the Feedster code base.

Feedster's URL API:

  • Script - search.php - main search routine that searches for a term or terms

    • q – Search query. 

      • What to search for.
    • offset – Offset. 

      • Where to start the page of search results.  Incremented in units of "limit".  If set to nothing then 1st page of results is retrieved.
    • limit – Limit. 

      • The quantity of search results per page.
      • Defaults to 10
      • Cannot be set to > 100
    • sort – Sort. 

      • How to arrange the results. 
      • Options are:

        • date
        • rank (sorts by a blog's popularity) and
        • [nothing] (i.e. not included in the query) which sorts by relevance.
    • output – output

      • what to output for the results of a search
      • options are
