When you login to a site that needs login, this one creates a cookie with the information of the session. BTfind needs the above mentioned information to be able to make the searches in the trackers.
For safety issues, it is not possible to read cookies created by other domains -BTfind cannot read the cookies created by a tracker-. For that reason, it is necessary to create them locally. It is the only way of reading the session information created by the trackers.
What does BTfind do with the information of my accounts?
Nothing. BTfind sends the login information directly to the trackers and creates a cookie with the session information that they return.
That cookie is stored locally and is accessible only from your PC.
Can I search in trackers in which I do not have account?
No. BTfind does not offer access to any tracker. Without account it is not possible to search.
Why does it get only the results from the first page?
BTfind is thought to make punctual searches. For example: "The lord of the rings the return of the king 1080p" and not "the lord of the rings". So, in most cases, more than one page of results is not obtained in every tracker.
To get the results of all the pages in several trackers, it would involve a considerable increase in the time that delays to show the results.
Anyway, the quantity of results for each page is something that can be modified from the profile in the trackers. So, if you wish to get more results, it is about selecting -in the corresponding tracker- 100 results for page instead of 15.
Nevertheless, I'm working to implement the functionality of getting the results from the rest of the pages.
It is only required basic knowledge of regular expressions and PHP. Take the example files included and make the trackers by yourself. Then, send them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be added to the official list (with proper credits).
That's right. If you want to help me stay awake during long nights of programming... you can contribute via PayPal or Flattr.
I develop BTfind in my spare time and I have to pay hosting every month, so any amount is more than welcome.
