Yahoo’s context search Y!Q for your blog

  • What does it do exactly? :S

    Hi – I followed your instructions and the plug-in removed all breaks, etc. from my posts. Any suggestions? I’m using Word Press 1.2.2

    It turns off the wpautop, try to comment out this line: remove_filter(‘the_content’, ‘wpautop’);

    Maybe it’ll work for you

    sorry should i put that in the index.php or layout.css? (newbie – not sure what “comment out” means)

    got it sorted, but i don’t think it works with a dark background very well.

    That’s too bad….well I hope Yahoo is going to improve the search script..

    I tried the hack that brizer suggested. It dinna work for me!
    I might use it if it were more well-behaved! As is, it does too much damage to the format, as noted by Guymauve.
    I wonder what hack Guymauve used, to make it usable?

    Ach, I was too hasty. When I properly “commented out”
    remove_filter(‘the_content’, ‘wpautop’);
    then it seemed to work.

    Well, sorta worked. It still did funky things to the layout, i.e., the content was now centered rather than left-aligned.

    So Y!Q stay in the bit bucket for now.

    I like the plugin … got it to work and (I thought) fixed the centering problem, too. But, it still does the centering thing – but only on the post where it is applied. Interesting.

    Could this be something in the yahoo javascript that is accessed for the image? javascript/yq.js on line 21?

    I posted about it in your blog, brizer.


    Thanks. It is a nice little plugin that can add some fun functionality – especially for an education related site.

    Great job.

    I am trying to add the WP plug-in for Y!Q but I am only getting the error message:

    We weren’t able to extract any words from your context selection…..

    Following the instructions from Zawondy’s site I have added the following to index.php –

    <script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript”
    Then, where you want the link:

    <form class=”yq” action=”http://yq.search.yahoo.com/search”
    <input type=”hidden” name=”context” value=”<$MTEntryTitle$>” />
    <div class=”yqact”>
    <input class=”yqbt” type=”submit”
    value=”Possibly Related Stuff”
    onclick=”return activateYQ(this)” />


    here is an example — http://thebakergalleries.com/hesaid/
