More versatile search

Feb 13, 2014 at 2:34 PM
How about the ability to have a more versatile search string. Something that allows me to insert the search term into the middle of a url string like this:
"searchURL":  ""  + {searchTerm} +   "/Products.aspx",

+1 on this ... many sites put the search query phrase somewhere in the middle of the URL which means you have to hack the default JavaScript to make it work.

An alternative approach would be something like this, where the WAT tool would simply replace the {searchTerm} token with whatever was searched for:
"searchURL":  "{searchTerm}/Products.aspx",
This approach would also work for sites that do put the search term at the end of eth query string:
"searchURL":  "{searchTerm}",
I'll add an issue to the issues list which references this thread
