API endpoints for searching threads/posts


Well-known member
I'd like to be able to query an API endpoint or two and get back a list of threads and posts as would be returned by the default search functionality. Thread and post objects should formatted like they're provided when querying those directly and some control over results per page would be helpful.

Any estimates? Shoot me a PM with your offer (but I maybe be slow to reply as we're in the middle of moving).

These are already available in the default XF API, why you need a custom development for this ?

Or you need something custom in that ?

I've looked through that, but there doesn't appear to be a way to get a list of threads or posts by "keyword" search. You can get a list of threads from a forum, or get posts from a specified thread ID, but I don't see anything about searching other than using "Search Forums", which aren't what I'm trying to do.

I'd like to be able to send an arbitrary query for something like "john f kennedy" and get back a list of threads and posts that would otherwise show up on the search page.

Maybe I'm missing something?
