B4X Forums search engine for IE/Chrome/FF

Hi all,

I created an OpenSearch plug-in for IE/Firefox/Chrome that enables you to search the all of the B4X forums directly, rather than you having to enter the forums first to search (okay, call me lazy!)

This means that you can search from your browser's address bar using a keyword that you set (in the example below I set it to b4x)

How do I get this?

1. Navigate to https://mycroftproject.com/search-engines.html?name=b4x.com and click on the entry and allow your browser to add it to its search engines collection.

2. In your browser's search engines settings, set your own desired keyword, for example:

Notes:


This plug-in searches all of the sub-forums, so you will obtain results from B4A, B4J etc.
However, if there's enough interest, I'll create specific plug-ins for each forum - let me know.

Hope someone finds this useful!

It is not really needed. The OpenSearch declaration is already available on the site:
I use it all the time.

Good point! Not sure why I never saw that prompt in FF.

This actually is better than what I've done, would it be okay to delete this entire thread as my post is utterly redundant? (or replace my post with yours Erel?)

I also want this, but failed to get it.
