    Hey all, just thought I'd let you know that I've developed a handy little site search plugin for Firefox which will search the WordPress site just like the search function does here.

    To download it, just go to http://www.manicdog.com and scroll down just below the site icons to download and install it.

    Any questions? Let me know.

    Got the message box, OK'd to install it, don't see the box anywhere, closed FF and restarted.... all I'm seeing is the "normal" google box.... non standard skin, customized toolbars, webdev toolbar....

    No error messages.

    vkaryl i believe one already exists, unless this one functions differently? Try this: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/20570

    Maybe the same or at least similar. Thing is, I don't get a search box or anything with either of them, yes, they're both showing in my searchplugins folder, but I'm just a tad confused about how to make them "work" - not surprisingly.... I've already established senior and blond today (don't ask!)

    I can't view http://www.manicdog.com, it says my current IP (80.144.160.15) is banned.
    The IP is from a large pool of dynamically assigned addresses most German DSL providers use. Blacklisting dynamically assigned IPs doesn't make much sense, you're likely to lock out legitimate visitors (like me for example).

    Works for me. You should have an arrow to the left of Firefox's search box. Pull it down, and select the engine of your choice...

    Details and loads more engines...

    Ah. Nope - no arrow. In this skin, you have to click on the stupid G for google inside the search box. Thanks for the help lbessant!

    Hey all, hope everything got figured out okay? As for the IP ban, well, you know how difficult it is to keep out spammers, but I'll check on it and see what I can do.
