XF 1.5 Searching forum from search form hosted outside install?


I'd like to put a search form on my main page, which is hosted outside the XF dir.

From the looks of things, the search functionality makes use of a token, so external calls result in a security error.

Is there any easy way around this?

You could submit the form over GET, which may resolve the issue. Otherwise, any POST request requires an anti-CSRF token. Disabling that for searches would require an add-on (or code modifications).
