    Every Firefox user has probably seen the search box to the right of the location box. The default installation of Firefox includes some useful pre-installed search engines including Google, Yahoo, Amazon, eBay etc. The search box is probably the quickest way to search for something. Hit Ctrl+K, type in your search query, hit enter and you get your results.

    But we were missing one little detail - there was no search plugin for OSNN. So I thought I'd create one (since Ctrl+K is incredibly handy) and share it with the rest of you.

    Hope you find it useful. [​IMG]

    Install: Firefox OSNN Search Plugin

    NOTE: The plugin should work with Mozilla and Netscape as well

    Superb, will add this in a minute. Just for reference, because we're awkward, CTRL+K is Command+K on the Mac version :D

    Yeah, I looked into that. It basically leads to the Mycroft project page, and when I tried to look for a submission form, I found this:
    Didn't really want to wait for a few weeks. [​IMG]
    I will submit it so that it appears eventually though.

    Aah, thought it would be a simple case of yoinking some Javascript to make it work (Like I did with the old sidebars :p)

    Ah, nevermind: http://netryder.osnn.net/plugins/searchplugin.html
    \o/

    Please delete the old files and add it using the new installer, everyone. Just had to make another little change in the file.

    Thanks everyone. Glad you all found it handy. [​IMG]

    This one is specific to OSNN, but it could easily be modified for other vB forums. I'll need the URL and a favicon (preferably in JPG, GIF or PNG format). You can PM me the details if you like.

    And a small addition:
    Bookmarks -> Rightclick 'Quick Searches' -> Manage Folder
    Add a new bookmark:
    Code:
    Name => 'OSNN Quick Search'
    Location => 'http://www.osnn.net/forum/search.php?do=process&sourceid=Mozilla-search&query=%s'
    Keyword => 'osnn'
    Hit OK.
    Now, when you type 'osnn <searchterm>' in the address bar, the <searchterm> is being searched for, like the special toolbar does :D Personally I prefer this method, instead of using the search toolbar. :)
