Author Topic:   Easily search all of Craigslist

I have noticed that Craiglist and Ebay are popular sites with the folks here on CW. While I like craigslist, I feel a bit limited by the fact that I cannot search the entire craigslist database with one simple search. I have to manually perform the same search numerous times.

I work with a tool called Xcelsius and I have built a swf that allows you to search the entire craigslist database with the click of one button.

I have embedded this swf file into my test blog for everyone to check out and test.

Known Issues:

* You may have to click the "Search" button more than once to get all of your results.

* Be patient with the time it takes to return the results

* For now, the search term dialog will only work successfully with a single term although I've seen multiple terms work.

* Hover over the question mark icon in the top right part of the screen for additional help/instructions.

Let me know what you think and how you think this could be improved.


(oh yeah, if anyone has a nice 15' they'd like to sell me, I'd really appreciate it.)

I forgot to mention that I know nothing about programming and was able to build this model in a few days.

I do like the craigshelper site though.
