Mozilla Firefox search plugin

Post by Gored Korea » 23 Apr 2008, 19:40

I made a Mozilla Firefox search plugin for TheManaWiki (hah) because I couldn't find one: http://mycroft.mozdev.org/install.html

You can find it here by looking for "The Mana World".
Yep.

With love,

Shouldn't it bring you to search results?

Here's an easier solution that would require no plug-in and bring you directly to search results.

1. Right click inside the search form for the forum. Choose "Add a Keyword for this Search..."
2. It doesn't matter what you put in the Name field, but the Keyword field will contain the actual keyword you precede your search with in the Address Bar. I used "tmw."
3. Press OK and you're done! You can use the search by typing the keyword and then your search string in the Address Bar.

For example: "tmw desert" would search all topics for the word desert, etc.

You can use this same technique to make quick searches for any search field.

I have to say, this thread is giving me less and less of the gratification I had expected. First the novelty doesn't work the way I feel it should, then Sert informs me of a complete workaround for said novelty. What a completely smashed dream.
