In addition, we can specify negative words or phrases in the request to these elements. The standard API does not allow this level of specificity to be posed to these discreet elements, rather, we would be relying on Prosperent itself for the relevance, which has been touted as the best.

    I'm not doubting that the standard query is "good" for 99% of users. But I do enjoy the filtering options of the extended query.

    It seems to me that the best solution in my case is to design an "advanced search page" which incorporates all elements of the extended query. Right now, I'm attempting to account for all variations of the extended search query from how the URL is constructed, and I'm running into mental walls.
    if there's no advanced searches being done, then default to the standard query. as soon as an advanced search is done, be specific.

    So if a person searches per brand @keyword would be * and @brand would be whatever brand they chose. Obviously this won't be specific to what they're looking for, but still useful. So if they entered a keyword, you can search by the keyword AND the brand etc etc etc

    But if there's no sorting or filtering going on, why bother sending it to extended query? Hope my English isn't letting me down here

    Although not a 'pure store function' per se, I would find it very helpful to have a module/widget type system to add external content, and to easily place & style that content on the template.

    External content sources might include: YouTube, Twitter, *Unique Content, ArticlesBase, eBay Feed, Yahoo Feed, RSS, etc.

    Perhaps there's even a way to integrate an already existing drag & drop template builder? The ability to easily modify templates would certainly be welcomed by those of us who struggle to make all but rudimentary changes to templates.

    A Few notes:

    - The site (and script) is a work in progress.

    - If you visit, and it's "broken" or all you see if a white page -- no need to report it. I'll fix it eventually.

    - When I'm ready, I'll open the door to formal beta testing.

    - At the present time, I plan on releasing this script free of charge while using the affiliate traffic sharing model. (10% of the time, the script's API-ID is used, while 90% of the time, the user's API-ID is used).

    - I plan on protecting the code with ionCube, but haven't worked out the logistics yet. Even this might change.

    - Constructive (and polite) criticism is always welcomed!

    After your closing </html> tag is the following.... was that intentional?

    Prosperent API :: Hidden
    Prosperent Channel ID :: 0
    Prosperent SID :: blogmasher.com_q=Christmas
    Prosperent Debug Mode :: 1
    Prosperent Limit :: 500
    Prosperent Page :: 1
    Standard Query or Extended Query :: christmas
    Compiled Extended Query ::

    Yes. That is intentional. I do that to see how the extended query is being formatted. Included is how to manually manipulate the uri. Example: http://blogmasher.com/go.php?q=Chris...ament&km=bible

    I like it. Would introduce a form of paging though (perhaps CSS/JavaScript based to have an "instant feel" to it), but other than that and a few design tweaks it looks good

    How do you process the cloud_keywords/cloud_descriptions? Would be interested to know how you get those into single keywords

    the titles are getting cut and hidden behind the sidebar.

    Hey, Acid. The reason behind this is to compare the list of 'cloud words' to a list of 'poison words' in order to place Adsense on pages that do not contain any of the poison words. (So I need a list of poison words!!) In addition, it is possible to append any of the 'cloud words' to the extended query to produce more searchable terms. I plan to do this a little later on when I get pagination down.

    Pagination is really whipping my ass right now.

    I use arrays to process strings into phrases. The real trick is to know which characters to use in order to explode the string. In addition, I'm using an Array of Filterwords (which contain prepositions, conjunctions, demonstrative pronouns and the like) and I'm Filtering out the Filterwords from the 'cloud words'.
