I just need the results to have the look of MY page... Tried Bolt, Advanced Meta Search and even Anaconda's... None really worked too good..
Im using free.prohosting
I *think* they have the LWP module.. ???
Any suggestions would be great... :)
Also, I'll "rally the troops," bring your question up in the mods forum, see if anyone has any specific suggestions. Best I can do I'm afraid...
I wrote one years ago, I wouldn't even both looking for it now, no chance it still works.
They also have an ODP directory that seems to work in about the same manner - a couple of lines of JS. It looks like a super-simple addition to a site. I just set up ODP++, and the Digital Windmill approach looks a heck of a lot faster, although perhaps with a little less control over results.
ODP++ lets you do a few cool things, like tie affiliate links (e.g., Amazon) to the selected category or search strings. On the other hand, you have to play with installing the scripts, modifying the templates, etc.
Ya, digital windmill is actually "closely" associated with anaconda.net cgi scripts... So theirmeta search and odp code for your site are just anaconda versions, only you cant customize them....
I just cant get any ODP script to work on a free cgi host!!! Its practically impossible! I tried a few on prohosting, spaceports, dk3, ...... Still it says no permission to connect to dmoz or directory.netscape.com
This is startin to tick me off! If anyone can make the ODP stuff work on a free cgi host, please post it here!! ;)
Thanks! (hey isnt this thread about metasearch?? oh well)
