New search plugin


I like to create a new search set that searches the EDGAR Database of the SEC for a company I choose with DA. I tried to do this like the “Ghandi” video-Tutorial, here: opening EDGAR, searching for the company, pasting the web-site into the “sites” tab, set the follow-link to 2 or 3, etc. but it only displays one page. I then also tried to create a plugin to make DA perform a search on the EDGAR database - but I have no idea how to tell it to do so…
does anybody have a clue for me?



The solution by pasting the EDGAR web site address into the Sites list of a search set is a very simple one. This only works when your search term appears on the very first page. DEVONagent also follows ‘promising’ links but not necessarily all links.

Here’s a plugin based on and created using the assistant (File > New Plugin) within few minutes. Not sure wether this is useful, just let me know. (667 Bytes)

Thanks very much… that works great!
