Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

WebRss features a search parameter: /MyWeb/WebRss?search=myitem. But with only one search parameter it is not compatible with search. For instance the result is still limited to 16, which is nice for news updates but too restrictive for search results.

The most common search parameters that should be passed:

  • search string
  • web
  • excludetopic
  • limit
  • scope
  • casesensitive
  • date

SVN 9505+9508 (TWiki4) and 9506+9507 (Develop).


SEARCHSTRING can be passed with an INCLUDE or as url param.

%SEARCH{ "%SEARCHSTRING%" scope="text" nosummary="on" nosearch="on" nototal="on" zeroresults="off" casesensitive="on" type="regex" excludetopic="%BASETOPIC%,WebHome,WebStatistics" scope="text" web="%BASEWEB%" limit="all" format="   * <a href='%SCRIPTURL{"view"}%/$web/$topic?q=%SEARCHSTRING%'>$topic</a><br /><span class=\"twikiGrayText twikiSmall\">$summary</span>" header="---++ Referrals to %SEARCHSTRING% <a href='%SCRIPTURL{"view"}%/%BASEWEB%/WebRss?search=%SEARCHSTRING%;excludetopic=%BASETOPIC%,WebHome,WebStatistics;limit=all;web=%BASEWEB%;scope=text;type=regex'><img src='%ICONURL{rss-small}%' width='16' height='16' alt='' /></a>"}%

Still I cannot manage to get multiple word strings into this query, like "web service". This is needed to offer RSS with WebSearch search results.
