I coded up a search extension for Firefox for the WarcraftRealms.com users who, just like me, frequently look up player / guild names daily and need it done quickly.



Now you can search player or guild names from any site, just like with Thottbot's search addon they have on their site. It works just the same, but for WarcraftRealms.com. This extension adds a search engine field to the very top right corner of your Firefox browser.

This is not any spyware riddled search bar installed separably, it's OpenSearch code and it is just like those default search engines you already have installed up there.

I asked Rollie about the idea and he said someone had already done it way back but I couldn't find it and neither could he, so I'm putting this thread here with a link in it for you to install it easily.

No cookies, no applications, no more than this one .xml file gets installed on your computer via your Firefox browser.

I found out that this only works on Firefox browsers 2.0+, I still don't know if this might work on Internet Explorer 7 as well, please feel free to try it on there and post a reply if it worked or not. If you have any trouble, let me know. This is my first attempt at .xml coding, but I haven't seen any bugs so far, it was advanced to me but pretty simple for the experienced .xml coder Smile

Have fun!

Install it here

This might help you out to what Rollie was talking about.

But, hey, 2 good ideas. Maybe you can take a look and maybe there's something that could be improved Smile

Oh, the greasemonkey one is completely different Smile

That's just for the official wow forums, this one is for the search field up top of your browser next to the address bar Smile So it works from any site, it's actually attached physically in your browser.
