Search Reddit (Including Subreddits) with Pixsy
The Pixsy Reddit Command
you will perform a search for the term, ‘technology’, across all subreddits on the site.
Search a Single Subreddit
You can drill down your search to a specific subreddit by entering the indicator
subreddit: in your search query. Follow this with the search term that you are interested in finding after the subreddit indicator. Confused? Here’s an example:
.reddit subreddit:pics geeks
This command searches the ‘pics’ subreddit for the query term, ‘geeks’.
Note the structure of the command.
You can enter the name of any subreddit and Pixsy will construct the appropriate URL with your search term properly URL encoded in order to allow you to quickly access these areas of the Reddit site without the need to click search selectors on the site.
Search Across Multiple Subreddits
If you would like to perform your search across multiple subreddits, chain the subreddits in a ‘+’ symbol delimited list. Here is an example for a search for ‘kittens’ in the ‘funny’ and ‘pics’ subreddits.
.reddit subreddit:funny+pics kittens
You can chain together as many subreddits as you’d like (I think, I’ve tested up to five).
