  • Custom config for search through the IE7/Firefox 2 Searchbar

    Greetz.
    There's a feature for make your forum searchable through the IE7/Firefox 2 Searchbar
    that i want to use, however, i'd like to customize it a bit.
    First of, i need to configure it for search within certain forum category and make it search in titles only. As far as i understand, some additional parametres should be added to line
    PHP Code:
    <Url type="text/html" method="get" template="http://www.yoursite.com/search.php?do=process&amp;query={searchTerms}" /> 
    Second, i want to restrict it so that only certain usergroups would be able to add this search in their browsers' searchbar... This (if i understand it right) could be done by adding some conditions to this line that goes to 'headinclude' template:
    PHP Code:
    <link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" href="http://www.yoursite.com/forum_url/ieff_search.xml" title="Your Website Name" /> 
    Could you guys help me out with those? Thanks in advance

      OK, i've found the answers myself, so i'll share it here.
      All additional variables could be found here, the only important thing is that you'll need to change
      Code:
      &
      to
      Code:
      &amp;
      in xml file.

      To restrict search addition to only certain usergroups (registered users forexample) you'll need to add following lines in headinclude template:
      Code:
      <if condition="!is_member_of($bbuserinfo, x, y, z)">
      <link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" href="http://www.yoursite.com/forum_url/yoursearch.xml" title="Your Website Name" />
      </if>
      where x, y, z are ids of usergrous you don't want to be able to add search.
