Search Agent – Schedule your searches

As long as the user sharing the file is still online when you return* you will be able to download the found file.
How to schedule a search:
Open Search Agent by selecting the 'Search Agent' tab to the right of 'Advanced' search* in ‘Search’ view.
Type keywords into the 'Search for:' text box* then click the 'Save & Run' button.
A dialog box will appear. To run the Search Agent press the 'Yes' button.
A search tab will appear at the top of the Search Results screen with your keyword in the tab. You can perform other searches and return to the Search Agent tab later. You’ll know that the Search Agent is still running* as there will be a circular blue icon in it.
A search can be stopped by either: clicking on the 'X' on the search tab* or selecting the keyword of the search in the 'Search Agent' search screen* and then clicking the 'Stop' button.
Running an Advanced search with Search Agent
An Advanced Search Agent search can be performed from the 'Advanced' tab. Fill out the fields of the Advanced search you wish to perform.

You can edit your search by selecting the search keyword in Search Agent’s search screen* and then clicking the 'Edit' button. This will display the 'Advanced' search options* and allow you to modify your search.
You can clear the 'Quick' or 'Advanced' search tab by clicking the 'New P2P Search' button in the top toolbar.
Password protect your family filter
Kazaa v 2.7 includes an updated filter tool that enables you to select age appropriate limitations to ensure you have the best possible peer to peer experience. You’ll be prompted to set up a family filter password when you install Kazaa v 2.7 * ensuring your settings can only be changed by you.
It’s strongly recommended that you set a password to protect the Family Filter if you share your computer.
The Family Filter options are:
All search results are displayed.
Filters search results where the file’s descriptive data (meta data) includes keywords which could potentially be used to describe offensive material.
Adult content (default)
Filters search results where the file’s descriptive data (meta data) includes keywords which could potentially be used to describe adult material* plus all keywords from the ‘Offensive content’ setting.
Images and Video
Does not show any search results that are standard image or video format.
You can change your password at any time. To do this* go to Tools> Options> Filter and click the ‘Change Password’ button.
Promote your blog or website
Promote your blog or website to other users via Kazaa* and find other user’s promoted blogs and sites. If you register your blog / site URL* it will be displayed as a link in search results and within the Kazaa traffic view when a file you’re sharing is displayed in another user’s search results.
How to do it:
To add your site* go to Tools > Options > Personal Website
Enter your URL (has to be a http://* https:// or ftp:// page) in the ‘Your Web Address’ field and ‘OK’. You can change or remove the URL any time.
If you’re new to Kazaa* you’ll get the chance to enter this information when you first set up Kazaa.
There are two ways to check out other user’s URLs and for them to view yours:
In search results* you can click on the user’s name if it’s a link. If you mouse over any of these links* the URL will appear in your (link) status bar.
Right click on a file in your search results and select “View User’s Personal Website”. You’ll then be taken to web view* to that site in ‘Web’ view.
You can include Magnet links on your site. Magnet links allow visitors to download files that you elect to publish on your blog or site via Kazaa* saving you bandwidth.
As always* yo must have the right to publish any site you make available through your blog. Read more about Responsible sharing.
Kazaa veterans please note: This new feature replaces the ‘Send message to this user’ option.
