    Can anyone give advice on how to set up a custom search in Alfred to search MR?

    When I perform a search on MR I get a URL like:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php?searchid=25361282

    and I can't figure out how to use this in setting up a custom search in Alfred

    Thanks in Advance!

    I don't use Alfred, but you can search MR Forums with Google. Just add the following to your Google search terms:
    site:forums.macrumors.com​

    It seems that based on the search method employed by MacRumors Forums you need to do a modified google search as mentioned above.

    You can still perform the search within Alfred by adding the following URL to Custom Searches:

    http://www.google.com/search?q={query}+site:forums.macrumors.com
