Ok so I have read a few threads, this one for example ( https://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/shopify-discussion/t/pass-variables-to-liquid-template-via-url-32784 ) which say it is not possible to capture a URL param using LIQUID. However that thread is 4 years old...
I am creating a custom SEARCH for a client which will utilize custom metafields to display products. I would like to perform this by passing a parameter to page. like ?param=keyword
Well that is definitely bad news. I am aware of Application Proxies, I have create a few apps actually. However I do not see how an Application proxy would help me here.
I am attempting to allow end-users (store customers) the option to search for products based on a set of customized criteria.
Thanks though. I will try to come up with a solution.
I have added your email address to this feature request — Expose current URL in Liquid, so you will receive an email when this feature is implemented, automatically.
Perfect. Thanks a ton... Kind of curious how this post is related to what I am trying to accomplish https://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/ecommerce-design/t/new-querystring-app-in-beta-59193 ;
Thanks again for your insight.
You're welcome, Charles!

With a Proxy App: http://api.shopify.com/app_proxy.html you can pass parameters to a URL that is using the same domain as the store front, then render content based on that. You would take care of producing search results based on passed parameters.
Can you explain more what you are trying to do?
