Hello James Henry,
Yes, it helped. That's it (possibly this post was what I saw before)! Thank you. :)
My next question is if this results is 'dynamically' reconstructed through the Search function again or 'statically' reconstructed as exactly same as the previous results.
I assume it is the former case, which is what I hope to have.
I guess I will try some tests to find that out.
I verified this also by testing some cases yesterday.
But interestingly, there is a problem that seems related to the browser cache mechanism for this 1st (long) Search parameter case.
I verified that "this results is 'dynamically' reconstructed through the Search function again" BY pointing the same URL from a different browser (usually I use Firefox so I opened Safari for example) THEN I saw the search results was 'dynamically' generated WHILE from the 1st browser (in my case, Firefox), the browser 'refresh' button will refresh some of the data but not all (that I assume the browser is referring the cache stored in the past). :(
As a conclusion, for the 1st (long) Search parameter case, users of the link need to click 'Revise Search' or configure their browser setting for the cache mechanism or the code of Search page should include the HTTP header to prevent the browser to use the cache.
The good news is that if you use the 2nd Search parameter James suggested THEN users of the link will most likely get the search results 'dynamically' generated at that point in time.
(I said "most likely" because my 1st test failed but later I see constantly retrieve the results and again there the possibilities other browsers with the different setting may behave differently). It seems the problem of using the cache is being avoided this way. :)
Anyway the format of the 2nd Search parameter is the following
You can also use double quote like the following if necessary (to give the condition of words being used in order):

I assumed James had looked at HTML source code to find this HTTP parameter 'search' so I also checked the HTML source code from the browser function. Here it is:
<form action="http://www.cassiopaea.org/forum/index.php?action=search2" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8" style="margin: 0;">
<input type="text" name="search" value="" size="40" />
By this way, I also found other HTTP parameters for:
1. Scope: 'search_selection' (that can take 'entireforum' (default), 'members' and 'entiresite' values), for example:
will take to the Google results for all recurrences of Pepperfritz in whole www.cassiopaea.org domain!
2. "by user" filter: 'userspec' (default value is *), for example:
will give the all Pepperfritz's posts about Work!
I hope these tips will open a door for 'creative' usages of Linking

on the Forum. ;)
