New search URL

Dan requested I make it possible to link directly to search results for passing around to friends.  Making functionality more easily accessible seemed like a good thing to do, so the controller now responds correctly to ajax and regular browser requests. Naturally had to add a work around for IE – life would be easier if nobody used it. But, needs must as the devil drives.  The result of all this is you can now access perform searches like this:

  1. Nice one… Pushing the friendship, but is it possible to have it do the smarts for say multible word search eg


    Completes an “and” search so I only get results with both words. How do I go about doing an “or” search so I get results for both words not a combination ? 🙂

    1. Hi Dan,
      Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I’m not opposed to adding features to Booko on request – but this one may be difficult. Booko actually passes the search query through to the Amazons and two other online book stores for searches, then merges the results. So, all 4 sites that are searched would have to support the search syntax – ie “AND” and “OR”.

      I’ll keep it mind though. The first step would be to check all sites to see if they’d support such syntax.
