Firefox Search Plugin for here!
« on: February 15, 2005, 01:24:01 PM »
Like the Google Plugin?

Love searching things from any site and very fast and want to do the same for SMF, well now you can. Introducing the SMF Firefox Search Bar Plugin!

Screenshots:






This will only work here although you could quite easily make your own. Ill share my code if anyone interested.

To get it just goto http://smf.oldiesmann.us/smf.htm and there should be a link to add it.


So What does it do?
Gives a simple search bar in Firefox with an SMF logo and lets you search these forums

What doesn't it give?
Access to the latest beta!

Anyway enjoy!

Sweet! :D
hehe

Nice! Thanks :D
No probs

Took a while, becuase of the 3 ways I tried to get the search string, one gave ahuge list of characters, the other wouldnt accept action and finnally I just based it on how the box at the top works, the community thing so its working now anyway.

Nice one - any chance of looking at the code plz? I know I'm not a coder or anything, but I'm hoping that it wouldn't be too hard (plus I'm trying to learn various coding when I can)...

looks like it's just javascript matt ;)
Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function errorMsg()
{
  alert("Netscape 6 or Mozilla is needed to install a sherlock plugin");
}
function addEngine(name,ext,cat)
{
  if ((typeof window.sidebar == "object") && (typeof
  window.sidebar.addSearchEngine == "function"))
  {
    //cat="Web";
    //cat=prompt('In what category should this engine be installed?','Web')
    window.sidebar.addSearchEngine(
      "http://www.t101.uni.cc/plugins/"+name+".src",
      "http://www.t101.uni.cc/plugins/"+name+"."+ext,
      name,
      cat );
  }
  else
  {
    errorMsg();
  }
}
//-->

</script>

For the code for the search thing just open smf.src in notepad or similar and the code is sittiing in there. :) Just plainly, if you look long enough you may notice how easy it actually is.  :)

Also SMF Team it would be great if you hosted the plugin here instead, but ive hosted it because of the Javascript installer thing

Yeah it would be a bit better.

I can't get to this (at least not from school)... Firefox sits there trying to load that page for about 30 seconds or so before telling me "The document contains no data"... Might be due to the firewall they've got on the network here.

No, I'm getting the same here - although I got it earlier, the page seem to want to load now...

Well I suppose it could but it wouldnt be universal, it would still only work here. Maybe the mycroft site would be better for it. http://mycroft.mozdev.com/

Thats the plugin search bar site.

What do you all think?

Although it takes 3 weeks to appear.
