How to get rid of very long search strings

Lookup your variables beforehand, then feed them into your search for cleaner, easier to read code. I also use the comment tags ([!] and [/!]) to hide linebreaks in order to make the search string easier to read.

[text]blah=[lookup etc...][/text]
[text]blahblah=[lookup etc...][/text]

[search db=some.db&[!]
[/!]eqFIELDNAMEdatarq=[url][blah][/url]&[!]
[/!]geFIELDNAME2datarq=[url][blahblah][/url]&[!]
[/!]FIELDNAME2type=num&[!]
[/!]asFIELDNAME2sort=1&[!]
[/!]etc[!]
[/!]]
