Is it possible in Expression Engine, using the latest version, to run a search query, without having to use a form? Meaning, I'd like to create an api endpoint like so:


So the view file would grab segment_3, and use that to search the various channels I have?

If that's not possible, then I ask, is it possible to do a post like how the regular search module works, but not require any of the extra params in the request, just send over the "keywords"?

Something like that is not possible with the first party search module. It would be possible to build queries like that with Low Search or Solspace SuperSearch however.
