Example for cGamer Forum: Wink

Search for posts with keyword "Game"!

Just use:

[url=http://example.com/search.php?action=opensearch&keywords=foobar]Search for posts with keyword "foobar"![/url]

ooo Very nice, thanks for the tip!

Hi, you should download the updated version 1.4 Wink

You use an ampersand (&) in your site name and so the plugin was unable to create a well-formed opensearch xml output. I wonder that internet explorer accepted it... Confused

Thanks. This now works perfectly. I did, however, changed my forum's name so that the '&' character was removed - It did caused problems on a few more places, but I forgot to change it.
