Do I need the activate the Pro-Account?

I noticed on the Ajax Search sample it shows results for everything on YouTube, I need a Search Box that only searches my Youtube channel and restrict other videos from showing on the results.

Hello,

 

You would use the following shortcode: [tubepress searchResultsRestrictedToUser="3hough"]

 

Thanks!

I added the code "[tubepress searchResultsRestrictedToUser="3hough"]" to the page, and I see our video list from Youtube.

 

See my page below:

http://mlc.1-target.com/video/

 

I'm trying to add a Search Box, so the user can search for a keyword or the name of a video to be searched only from our Youtube channel... not all channels in Youtube.

 

How can I add a Search Box like this that will restrict searching only in my youtube channel?

Hello 1Target,

 

The RestricedToUser only works for users, not for channels.

 

Sorry for the confusion.

 

Thanks!

So can I restict the Search for content that only my User has posted? If so, this will work for us.

 

How do we restrict for User?

Hello 1Target,

 

You would use the following shortcode:

 

[tubepress searchResultsRestrictedToUser="YourUserNameHere"]

 

and then take a look here: http://tubepress.com..._search_youtube

 

To get an idea of how to complete the rest of the setup for your search.

 

If you wish to use the Ajax search feature, you will be required to purchase TubePress Pro.

 

 

Thanks!

I added the code, but it does the same thing as if I only have [tubepress], and it display the latest videos.

 

We are trying to do a Search by inserting a keyword, similar to Ajax.... But we are not sure if the Ajax Search feature will be able to only search for videos posted by our User.  We don't want to search for everything in YouTube, only what our users has posted.

 

Is this possible with the Ajax Search feature with TubePress Pro?

Hello 1Target,

 

Yes, keyword search restricted to a single user is possible with TubePress Pro.

 

Here is an example code from a working page in my demo/dev environment:

[tubepress output="ajaxSearchInput" searchResultsDomId="#resultsDiv" searchProvider="youtube" playerLocation="popup" galleryId="9999" searchResultsRestrictedToUser="3hough"]

<div id="resultsDiv">results go here</div>

Once you have Pro, you can simply copy/paste the above code, change the searchResultsRestrcitedToUser=value and you're all set.

 

Thanks!

Hi 1Target,

 

I just used the exact shortcode that you are using on your site (based on debug output) and it worked perfectly including the search function.

 

When reviewing your debug output I see the following message:

[2014-08-14 05:25:25] [WARNING] Memory Execution Context: Ignoring invalid value for "searchResultsDomId" (No option with name "searchResultsDomId".) 

However in my dev environment, it does not give this error.

 

Please uninstall, completely, TubePress from your site.  Then download the newest version available from the "Marketplace" above (make sure to download TubePress Pro) and then re-install on your website.

 

Let me know how that goes, please.
