Federated Search does not seem to be showing maximum RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Simple as that,i'm using the search connector listed here
    http://www.redmondpie.com/search-connectors-for-windows-7-federated-search/

    for example,the one for amazon

    i type "super solver" which lists 50 for software on the site

    i get 12 items on the federated search,there is no 'next page' option,and i go as far as i can scroll

    Is there any reason why i can't get anymore than that?

  • Hi Anon2057,
    The problem is with application which is specified is Search Connector file (.osdx - Search Connector Descryption file) which you download. You can use another search connector, for example this, which I write for this thread:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <OpenSearchDescription xmlns="http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/" xmlns:ms-ose="http://schemas.microsoft.com/opensearchext/2009/">
    <ShortName>Amazon</ShortName>
    <Description>Search in Amazon</Description>
    <Url type="application/rss+xml" template="http://api.search.live.com/rss.aspx?source=web&amp;query={searchTerms} site:amazon.com&amp;web.count=50"/>
    <Url type="text/html" template="http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q={searchTerms}+site:amazon.com"/>
    <ms-ose:ResultsProcessing format="application/rss+xml">
    <ms-ose:LinkIsFilePath>-1</ms-ose:LinkIsFilePath>
    </ms-ose:ResultsProcessing>
    </OpenSearchDescription>

    Copy and paste it to Notepad, save as NAME.osdx. Add to the Explorer.
