How to make web searching workflow without manually connecting keyword and all the open url actions


Recommended Posts

Hello.

I know nothing about making programs or anything. I need some help here.

What I want is to make a workflow that searches the websites that I want without manually connecting keyword and all the open url actions.

I want something that I can simply add as many URL including {query} as I need.

I know how to make URL including {query}.

I know this could be too much to ask but

can anyone make a sort of script or anything that I can use by adding new url

or at least let me know what to study to make this?? Please help me. 

This is what I have... there will be much more URL actions.

Edit the searches.txt file in the workflow to add/remove search engines.

 

Hello. Thanks for the comment, but I don't know where "the searches.txt" file is, though I downloaded the workflow. I can't find the file. There is only this Multi Search.alfredworkflow file.

I thought it works, but somehow it doesn't work. It does search on every websites I add in the search.txt file. But the search results are different when I manually search the same thing on the same website. I add the same URLs with {query] that I used on the workflow I made above. So, basically I can't get the right search results by using your workflow. I don't know what I did wrong. anyways, thank you for your effort.

Then perhaps the URLs are different. What are the final URLs of the search results from the workflow and when you search in-browser?

Thank you for the reply !!!

 

This is the same URL I used https://search.11st.co.kr/Search.tmall?kwd={query} in both workflows

 

This is the URL result from what I manually searched https://search.11st.co.kr/Search.tmall?kwd=%EA%B0%80%EC%8A%B5%EA%B8%B0       "%EA%B0%80%EC%8A%B5%EA%B8%B0"< is the query part and I searched humidifier in Korean, which is 가습기 in Korean.

 

This is the URL result from your workflow. https://search.11st.co.kr/Search.tmall?kwd=가습기

 

You are right. the results are different. But I used the same URL that I used in my workflow. It seems like English searching shows the same results unlike Korean searching. This is the same URL result from both ways https://search.11st.co.kr/Search.tmall?kwd=humidifier
