[pmwiki-users] Modify the result of a search

Dear Pm,

I finally managed to make WebFeeds generate the output I need for  
livesearch, as you suggested a few weeks ago. I added a new action  
handler for livesearch:

## Settings for livesearch feature
SDVA($FeedFmt['livesearch']['feed'], array(
   '_start' => "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='$Charset'  ?><ul  
   '_end' => "</ul>"));
SDVA($FeedFmt['livesearch']['item'], array(
   '_start' => '<li class="LSRow"> - <a href="$PageUrl"> $Title</a>',
   '_end' => "</li>"));

It wonderfully returns pages in selected groups as xml file.
What would you suggest to combine this with a search query, so that I  
only get back the search results as xml?

Thanks a lot in advance.
