What it says in the title. It's more convenient when you want to re-check an earlier search or share the result.

It IS possible to copy the URL; the issue lies with the fact that the site uses tokens now for the search results (which I know expire after a given time - there might be other things tied to the token that I don't know about that further restrict the "shareability" of the links, I'm not an expert).

I imagine there was a good reason for the switch, but I certainly can't envision what it may have been. So until then -

a good idea.

somewhat related: i remember it took me some time to notice that phpBB provided a link to the search query, if you wanted to repeat. before that, i'd get pissed once the Form data was gone, or if i'd closed the window that had the search.

Sounds like a dumb question but how would you go about "copying an advanced search" URL? And where would you put it?

Sounds neat so I'll sign, just was confused by what TC was wanting to do.

Either in the address field or copying a link given to you after searching, similar to how you get a link after uploading a pic to imgur. You put it wherever, a forum post for example.
