I tried it and it looks good
Sadly, it is not a real search engine with indexing, which would be a lot cooler because it would ultimately be less work for you, once it was running and it would make sure to find every manialink, even if people are not familiar with FindMe and create Manialinks.

Anyways, good work :0010

I'd suggest you save the last search(results) in a persistent variable so one can visit a link and come back to his search.

Btw my manialink:

NAME: ZockaMl
CODE: zockaml
DESCRIPTION: My tracks and manialink concepts
KEYWORDS: zocka,proni,tracks
manialink minigame shatter
my manialink: zockaml
my maniaflash: maniaflash?zocka

are you adding each manialink manually? If so, why?
I recommend having some sort of automized system instead of adding ALL manialinks 1 by 1 :/
If you decide to quit playing ManiaPlanet games then the tool would be outdated instantly.


I love the idea of course and I appreciate your effort. :thx:
NADEO y u do diz? :oops: #MP4

As I already wrote, the index required for the ManiaLink Search Engine should be done ideally on the server, and at the moment, only Nadeo can do that. Therefore it is certainly only a temporary workaround to provide some links to domino54 "by hand" ;)

I suggest sending a request to Nadeo. I am sure they will be helpful in this regard. They usually try to help, if they can ;)

Why asking Nadeo for that when we can do that ourselves ? We can create a website (no need to be huge), invite players to add their manialink and we can create a manialink too where manialinks added on the website is published in categories on the manialink and they can be also searched on it.

EDIT : And we have access to manialinks owners with ManiaConnect

Sounds like r-link to me ;)

The problem with automated indexing is
  • that we lack a way to really categorize a manialink/determine it's content, unless everyone starts placing hidden labels with defined ids that can be found by a crawler.
  • that we can't find dynamic maniascript links. A crawler would be limited to manialink attributes and explicit OpenLink calls.
I played around with that for a bit a year ago :?
Searching for links labeled 'skins', 'tracks' etc. trying to get an impression of the contents on the manialink, making a difference for local/relative links and links with a different maniacode etc.
Not trying to discourage anyone, maybe someone want's to challenge himself :D

Because Manialinks have to be registered on the Player Page?
I do not want the users to have to register the same link at different places, only to be in this or that index.
