I'm not sure if this currently could be done with a guide template, or if this is something that could be added, but I wish there was a way I could create a "Web Search Guide" in Logos.

There's various Christian websites, blogs, etc., that have excellent content I enjoy searching. Additionally, my college has an online library I can search as well with a bunch of databases. Plus there's always Wikipedia, Wolfram Alpha, etc.

If there was a way I could build a guide template, plug in all these search links, and have Logos search and display the information in a guide inside Logos (where I could click to go to the websites in my browser), it'd be a great timesaver of being able to search a multitude of websites on a certain topic at once, as well as having it all built into Logos so I could start my search there!

Built in search operators that'd launch the searches, Topic Guides, or Sermon Starter Guides in Logos would be neat too.

Thanks!

Some website searches are already available in the Guides and a new one was added to 5.1b. Requests for specific sites could be added to UserVoice.

It'd be great if there'd be a way to manually add your own websites to search. That way Logos wouldn't have to add all of them for us. :-) Just a general "website search" widget that could be added to guides, then I could input the URL or the search URL and have Logos do the rest.

Great suggestion! I like this idea!

Don't forget to put it on UserVoice!

OK great! Sure will! What's the link to UserVoice again?
