  • [HOWTO] integrate any vB site into Opera quicksearch

    Opera users love the feature for typing f.ex. "g vbulletin styles" in the
    address bar for searching for vbulletin styles in google.

    It would be nice to have this feature for vbulletin.org, wouldn´t it?

    Here´ s how you do it:

    1.) in Opera, goto "Help" -> "about Opera" and find out where your path to
    your config files are.

    2.) go to that directory and make a copy paste of search.ini and rename
    the old one to search.ini_old

    3.) open search.ini and add the following:

    HTML Code:
    [Search Engine xx]
    Name=vB.org
    URL=http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/search.php
    Query=query=%s&do=process&titleonly=1&searchuser=&starteronly=0&exactname=1&replyless=0&replylimit=0&searchdate=0&beforeafter=after&sortby=lastpost&order=descending&showposts=0&forumchoice%5B%5D=0&childforums=1&dosearch=Search+Now&saveprefs=1
    Key=vborg
    Encoding=utf-8
    Is post=1
    Has endseparator=0
    Search Type=0
    VerbText=17063
    ...replacing the "XX" with the appropriate number.

    4.) close Opera, open it and type "vborg searchitem" into the addressbar.

    5.) goback to search.ini and edit the settings to your liking

    You have all the possibilities such as in vB itself.

    NJOY!!!
