Picture of the Week #601

Heading towards Henry VIII’s Kitchens at Hampton Court Palace. Photo May 2015. I was at Hampton Court this day in 2015 and it’s hard to believe it has already been 5 years since my last trip to the UK. In 1998 this was the day I flew back...

Courtyard of Oxburgh Hall. Photo May 2015. All of my trips to the UK have been in the second half of May because that’s one of the easiest times for me to take two or three weeks off work, I thought it would be fun to see where I was on this date...

Blakeney, Norfolk, England. Photo May 2015. Not strictly Tudor related, but as I’ve mentioned before, Blakeney was a big seaport from medieval times through to the 20th century, so it would have been a hoppin’ place in the Tudor era! Now it’s...

Picture of the Week #593

Tudor front of Hampton Court Palace. Photo May 2015. Henry VIII self-isolated before it was cool, although I can’t remember if he ever did it at Hampton Court. Regardless, I’m sure he was doing it in a space much larger than my 700 sq. ft....

Blickling Hall, Norfolk. Photo May 2015 I thought I would celebrate the 125th birthday of the National Trust by posting a photo from one of the properties in their care that I visited on my last trip over. If I remember correctly, this is basically my...

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:

http://emc.historycarnival.org/searchcat?s={search term or phrase}

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

http://emc.historycarnival.org/searchcat?s=london

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

http://emc.historycarnival.org/searchcat?s=Gunpowder%20Plot&exact=on

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.
