New *. STH / RS Web Browser Search Engine Plugins

Post by Samwise » Fri Oct 15, 2010 1:21 am


There's been a small new feature added to the site which may be of some use to those who use the search bar, typically found in the top right corner of modern web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox (2+) or Mozilla Internet Explorer (7+).

I've written and deployed a couple of new OpenSearch search engine plugins covering the *. Stairway To Hell forums and the Retro Software forums, to complement the Retro Software wiki search engine plugin which, tho little-known, has been available since the launch of RS.

Savvy users can add them from any forum page by pulling down the list of search providers - click the small downwards pointing triangle. Alternatively, both Firefox and IE users can add them by simply clicking the more prominent links on the front splash page.

If you have any problems installing or using them, please shout in the feedback forum.
