URL Search parameters

When you create a URL using the Deploy wizard it contains a number of parameters. Take for example the following URL:

https://blipstar.com/search?uid=123456&type=nearest&width=auto
It has three parameters defined: uid, type and width. Below is a list of parameters that Blipstar understands. Feel free to experiment, but be aware incorrect values might cause strange results!

Tip: If a parameter is specified in the URL it will override the setting you have in Configure (e.g. if your default search type is Nearest locations but the URL contains a type parameter of radius (&type=state) the State search type will be used.
