The SWL page now updates the URL after each search. The updated URL may be bookmarked to make return visits and repeated enquiries easier or cut and pasted into social media posts to share results. If this sort of thing is useful on other pages, please let me know and I can look at implementing this on other pages.
Sample URLs look like this;
The intention is to record share search results but I'll document the API in the next few days so that external applications can automate visits to the site. The API will be extended in the coming weeks to include some of the formatting parameters (e.g. the results sort order and number of rows displayed).
As ever, comments and suggestions are most welcome.
