Custom search functionality on your site
It is possible to add Pond5 search functionality on your own site using the #server_side_search_api. There are two ways of accessing the API; either using the https://www.pond5.com/document/api.html or using a slightly simplified version. Here we're going to talk about the simplified version.
Both ways use the page https://www.pond5.com/index.php?page=xml_search to communicate with the API/Pond5's database. Everything you have to say goes via arguments to the URL and nothing is via POST:ed data. In both cases you'll need to base your search on a xml_search url and you setup via https://www.pond5.com/index.php?page=xml_search_setup.
