#4101 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Allow a ?q= parameter to be used in URL

Description

It would be good* if we could allow a search to be triggered on osm.org by appending an extra parameter, e.g. 'q' which is commonly used for search criteria.

It'd need to trigger the sidebar and perform the search, perhaps also changing the map view to something relevant, but that's another issue I think.

This could also help work towards short links* as I wrote about at http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/dankarran/diary/15309

  • I'm planning to look into these at the upcoming hack weekend

This has been supported for years. Possibly even since before I got involved as I can't find a commit for it. Just add ?query= to the url.
