Weber Grill Finder: Master Craigslist City/State Search List
« on: March 14, 2015, 12:43:22 PM »
Just a little something I was dabbling with.
I had programmed something that was scraping all of the data and supplying alerts and subscriptions and stuff, but with all of the drama around regions and turf and that, I stopped.

I think the page itself can be improved, and the search criteria could use some polish as well.

Let me know if you have suggestions :)

CHOOSE YOUR STATE:

AL | AK | AZ | AR | CA | CO | CT | DE |
FL | GA | HI | ID | IL | IN | IA | KS | KY | LA | ME | MD | MA | MI | MN | MS | MO | MT | NE | NV | NH | NJ | NM | NY | NC | ND | OH | OK | OR | PA | RI | SC | SD |  TN | TX | UT | VT | VA | WA | WV | WI | WY | CANADA

Damn .. Why'd you put Canada on there? . I was hoping to scoop up all the vintage black kettles in Ontario without interference   :o ::) ::) ;) ;)

Not a bad idea, Troy.  I don't have a problem with it.  But, I don't search outside of Ontario. JM2

If I click on each city name, I search each city - is there any way I can click once and search on all the cities? 8)

I COULD make a javascript link that opens all the cities in a state, or even add checkboxes to YOUR cities and only open the ones you choose.

alright I made some upgrades :)
i made the links open in new windows, so you can just go down the list and click the ones you want to see

i also added the list of states at the top so you can go right to the states you're interested in
and i fixed all the canadian links, they weren't working

www.adhuntr.com is a nice way to search all of craigslist for those who haven't heard of it.

Searchtempest.com is another.

The problem with them is that they index everything, but they're slow to update their index.
