Topic: App to auto search forums
Message: Posted by: edshern (Jan 9, 2020 07:17AM)
Hi Techs,
Is it possible to create a search app that looks for certain words daily.
For instance; I want to buy a certain Tenyo trick but don't want to check the Tricks For Sale every day.
So an app/software that searches all (or designated) forums for that word(s) would be great.
Many auction sites have that feature.
Ant thoughts?
THANKS,
Ed

Ed, so you are looking for the Café to automatically search for your "word". If it finds one, I assume you'd want to be notified of the findings automatically? How about you just start a topic in the For sale section and just click on subscribe? That way if a post is made in response, you would be notified.

Suppose your word was "sword". Every post that mentioned "sword" would give you a result, not just the particular topic you were looking for. Seems like that might be more cumbersome that just doing a manual search each time you log in.

Not saying your suggestion can't be done, just something to think about.
