Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 78

O how the pleasant airs of true love be Infected by those vapours which arise From out that noisome gulf, which gaping lies Between the jaws of hellish jealousy: A monster, others’ harm, self-misery, Beauty’s plague, virtue’s scourge,...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 63, and First Song

O grammar-rules, O now your virtues show; So children still read you with awful eyes, As my young dove may, in your precepts wise, Her grant to me by her own virtue know; For late, with heart most high, with eyes most low, I craved the thing which ever...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 37

My mouth doth water, and my breast doth swell, My tongue doth itch, my thoughts in labor be; Listen then, lordings, with good ear to me, For of my life I must a riddle tell. Towards Aurora’s court a nymph doth dwell, Rich in all beauties which man’s...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 24

Rich fools there be, whose base and filthy heart Lies hatching still the goods wherein they flow, And damning their own selves to Tantal’s smart, Wealth breeding want, more blest, more wretched grow. Yet to those fools heaven such wit doth impart, As...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 14

Alas, have I not pain enough, my friend, Upon whose breast a fiercer gripe doth tire Than did on him who first stole down the fire, While Love on me doth all his quiver spend, But with your rhubarb words you must contend To grieve me worse, in saying...

Astrophil and Stella, Sonnet 9

Queen Virtue’s court, which some call Stella’s face, Prepared by Nature’s choicest furniture, Hath his front built of alabaster pure; Gold is the covering of that stately place. The door, by which, sometimes, comes forth her grace, Red...

Notes on Post Tags Search

By default, this searches for any categories containing your search term: eg, Tudor will also find Tudors, Tudor History, etc. Check the 'exact' box to restrict searching to categories exactly matching your search. All searches are case-insensitive.

This is a search for tags/categories assigned to blog posts by their authors. The terminology used for post tags varies across different blog platforms, but WordPress tags and categories, Blogspot labels, and Tumblr tags are all included.

This search feature has a number of purposes:

1. to give site users improved access to the content EMC has been aggregating since August 2012, so they can look for bloggers posting on topics they're interested in, explore what's happening in the early modern blogosphere, and so on.

2. to facilitate and encourage the proactive use of post categories/tags by groups of bloggers with shared interests. All searches can be bookmarked for reference, making it possible to create useful resources of blogging about specific news, topics, conferences, etc, in a similar fashion to Twitter hashtags. Bloggers could agree on a shared tag for posts, or an event organiser could announce one in advance, as is often done with Twitter hashtags.

Caveats and Work in Progress

This does not search post content, and it will not find any informal keywords/hashtags within the body of posts.

If EMC doesn't find any <category> tags for a post in the RSS feed it is classified as uncategorized. These and any <category> 'uncategorized' from the feed are omitted from search results. (It should always be borne in mind that some bloggers never use any kind of category or tag at all.)

This will not be a 'real time' search, although EMC updates content every few hours so it's never very far behind events.

The search is at present quite basic and limited. I plan to add a number of more sophisticated features in the future including the ability to filter by blog tags and by dates. I may also introduce RSS feeds for search queries at some point.

Constructing Search Query URLs

If you'd like to use an event tag, it's possible to work out in advance what the URL will be, without needing to visit EMC and run the search manually (though you might be advised to check it works!). But you'll need to use URL encoding as appropriate for any spaces or punctuation in the tag (so it might be a good idea to avoid them).

This is the basic structure:{search term or phrase}

For example, the URL for a simple search for categories containing London:

The URL for a search for the exact category Gunpowder Plot:

In this more complex URL, %20 is the URL encoding for a space between words and &exact=on adds the exact category requirement.

I'll do my best to ensure that the basic URL construction (searchcat?s=...) is stable and persistent as long as the site is around.
