BlingAPI 1.1 Issues

Quotes wont work in the search... search terms should be urlencoded too (though the urlencode function doesn't fix the quote issue).


Also, you close curl after the return.

In 1.0 the search terms were urlencoded automatically yet I found this less flexible so in my announcement back then when I released 1.1 I said I removed them. Yet the reason is because it allows you to do whatever you want to the search term(formatting, manipulation, etc etc then apply the urlencode and submit)

As for the quote issue, I did took it in consideration but I also looked at google's and bing's way and they also didn't encode their quotes so I'm assuming it's acting as it should.

As for closing cURL at the very end instead of closing before the return, you are suggesting this?
