Firefox Search Plugin for Sitepoint

As it’s Friday, a nice gimmick for Firefox users, inspired by Planet PHP’s Search Plugin (itself inspired by the PEAR search plugin).

First you need a little XML like;


name="Sitepoint"
description="Sitepoint Search"
method="GET"
action="http://www.sitepoint.com/search/search.php"
>


browserResultType="result"
resultListStart=""
resultListEnd=""
>

Filename: sitepoint.src (put in somewhere like http://localhost/sitepoint.src)

Next a touch of HTML;



Install Sitepoint Search Plugin

Put that somewhere one your local server as well, view with Firefox and install, then you should be able to select Sitepoint from the search drop down (top right in default Firefox theme) and enter searches directly.

Judging from this part of the configuration file;


method="GET"

Looks like POST is supported as well – should be possible to add searches for specific forums as well, but haven’t tried.
