A brand new mozilla firefox plugin :D, what it does is it adds a couple search engines(see screenshot) to the mozilla firefox browser to search the www and forum fast and easy.

I used the the forum picture for the older plugin but Bassline made a new icon(included in the package) which looks alot better.
The plugins all have auto-update which checks once every 3 days(standard setting), so when there is a new icon or something needs to be changed it will update itself :)

-----------------------------------------------
Description of the files:

Dead-donkey plugins :
dead-donkey-forum.src = search the forum
dead-donkey-movies.src= search the forum for movies only
dead-donkey-requests.src= search the forum for requests only
dead-donkey-misc.src= search the forum for misc only
dead-donkey-www-game.src = search for game releases on the mainpage
dead-donkey-www-movies.src = search for movie releases on the mainpage
dead-donkey-www-series.src = search for series releases on the mainpage

scifi.dead-donkey plugins :

scifi.dead-donkey-forum.src= search the forum
scifi.dead-donkey-movies.src= search the forum for movies only
scifi.dead-donkey-requests.src= search the forum for requests only
scifi.dead-donkey-misc.src= search the forum for misc only

And if you don't want let's say "dead-donkey-www-series" then you can simply remove the dead-donkey-www-series.src and dead-donkey-www-series.png files from the directory :)

----------------------------------------------
Installation instructions:

1. Install mozilla firefox 0.8 or higher http://texturizer.net/firefox/download.html

2. Download the searchplugin file(updated again, to include sci-fi.dead-donkey.com forums)

http://emulepawcio.sourceforge.net/HHAH/HHAH-all%20in%20one%20searchplugins%20for%20mozilla%20firefox.rar
NEW updated on 08-25-04 22:40 gmt+1

3. unpack the rar to a scary directory
4. move the .src and .png files to:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla firefox\searchplugins\ (this only an example)

Important sidenote: i changed the name of the older one so plz remove the old dead-donkey.src and dead-donkey.png from the above folder.

5. enjoy :beerchug: and here is a screenshot on how it looks when it's done:

hehe, well the reason you are able to do this now is because on saturday I changed the board code to enable it to properally process GET submissions. I was going to post how to acheive a search plugin in the site development but haven't got round to it, but I might as well now i got a bit of free time.

Basically anyone attempting to do this previously, would have all their information blatantly ignored by the search.php, so even if you ran a remote search for "Texas" in the movie sections to return topic titles, it would do the search, but would return hits from all sections and return posts, not topics. I edited the search.php page to process the strings in the url so that it obeyed any restrictions, and hence why this search actually works. (If you tried the plugin before saturday, you will know what I would have meant).

Anyway, now that I modded the search.php, it really couldnt be simpler to have searches. Basically, this is the string you want to play with:
Code:
http://forum.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=SEARCHWORDHERE&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=3&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200


That above string will search all sections for SEARCHWORDHERE. If you are wanting to restrict it to say... movie sections, search_forum=-1 would then =3.

So here's how you can make search boxes in Opera without any plugins. Navigate to:
C:\Documents and Settings\Profile Name\Application Data\Opera\Opera75\profile

and open search.ini . Although you can add searches, I'd recommend replacing some of the others. For example, here are my searches:


Code:
[Search Engine 4]
Name=FDD Movies
URL=http://forum.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=3&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200
Query=
Key=c
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Encoding=
Search Type=3
Verbtext=17063
Position=14
Nameid=0

[Search Engine 6]
Name=FDD All
URL=http://forum.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=-1&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200
Query=
Key=r
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Encoding=utf-8
Search Type=10
Verbtext=17063
Position=-1
Nameid=0

[Search Engine 7]
Name=SDD Movies
URL=http://scifi.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=3&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200
Query=
Key=n
Is post=0
Has endseparator=1
Encoding=utf-8
Search Type=13
Verbtext=17063
Position=-1
Nameid=0

[Search Engine 8]
Name=SDD All
URL=http://scifi.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=-1&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200
Query=
Key=o
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Encoding=iso-8859-1
Search Type=11
Verbtext=17063
Position=-1
Nameid=0


IMPORTANT: URLS SHOULD BE ON ONE LINE ONLY, I SPLIT HERE TO STOP THE TOPIC STRETCHING!

Just replace the corresponding search with the one above. To add search boxes, you can then simply, go to a tool bar --> customize toolbar>Buttons and fields>search>then drag the search box onto whatever toolbar (you'll need to restart if u just edited search.ini)

Sorry I didn't post as soon as I enabled the option to allow remote searching, but well... I've been busy :mrgreen:

oh and those strings will not work on any other site. The search.php must be edited to understand get commands.

For the frontpage its easy as cake, just use these:
http://www.dead-donkey.com/modules.php? ... pe=reviews
http://www.dead-donkey.com/modules.php? ... e=reviews2
http://www.dead-donkey.com/modules.php? ... e=reviews3

Where MOVIE, SERIES, or GAME are the search query. For opera, you would replace them with %s and just replace another entry in your search.ini

Easy and, erm something easy :mrgreen:

Thanks for the search strings, will make a plugin for each category today :D

/Edit: Does the mainpage also support "GET"?
Because if not there is no way to get it to work with Firefox, so far i can get it to parse the query but it says no results found(does not select the cat?)

:beerchug:

I replaced another unused one in my search.ini:
Code:
[Search Engine 5]
Name=Dead-donkey.com
URL=http://www.dead-donkey.com/modules.php?name=Search&query=%s&topic=&category=0&author=&days=0&type=reviews
Query=
Key=w
Is post=0
Has endseparator=1
Encoding=iso-8859-1
Search Type=5
Verbtext=17063
Position=-1
Nameid=0


:)

phpnuke supports GET as default. I have no idea why phpbb doesn't vanilla... I mean it accepts the GET, but it doesn't process it properly. I just think they saw no need in making it use GET since the phpbb search uses POST.

This is the link it parses so far with "dawn of the dead" as the search word:

http://www.dead-donkey.com/modules.php? ... f+the+dead

Don't see the bug atm, but not a php expert :P

/edit: Works now, had to edit the ? to &, not a nice solution because now it has &? :P

its parsed back to front and inside out. Syntax is:
http://www.dead-donkey.com/modules.php? ... pe=reviews

edit: ar, rite I see :) I don't like phpnuke's search too much to be often. It lacks constraints and is a bit open on matching titles :(

The inside out i can't fix, it's just the way firefox does this(unless it's somewhere in the big how-to :P ).
Phpnuke search results are indeed a little wide, i typed dawn of the dead and found things like:

Basket Case 2 (1990) :P

Added scifi.dead-donkey.com(with a nice alien logo :P) to the mix of plugins , should be complete now :)
Painkiller would be a good addition to the horror games, it :-o the living sh*t out of me sometimes.

/edit: oops did a "add game" on the mainpage(for painkiller), but didn't see the paste ed2k links here(thought that the links would be filled later) now it says send :P
Found the topic about how to release, will resubmit it.

It's a jpeg, here is the source picture(got it from google images):

http://emulepawcio.sourceforge.net/HHAH/images.jpg

And for the H logo (from Bassline):

http://emulepawcio.sourceforge.net/HHAH ... -forum.png (can be converted to about every possible format)

PS: i will add a couple of good horror games which i can find this week(to fill it up a bit :) )
Btw saw the 7 cd mistake(because of the cue files) of painkiller too late, but see that you changed it to the good way 8)

*made sticky*

For I might give this a bump with the rest of the advanced features like RSS. I wondered if its possible to add some more forum/sci-fi.dead-donkey.com searches? It's sometimes useful to restrict searches a bit, so you search all movie sections seperately if your just looking for a movie.

There's also this ico which is in use for those forums:
http://scifi.dead-donkey.com/favicon.ico

The classic alien egg :)

Sure i will look into this, it's easy if i can find the strings after that it's just copy and paste.
How about these extra searches for (sci-fi).dead-donkey.com:

1. HQ releases
2. movie requests
3. screeners & unverified releases
4. horror series

It should be possible so long as it can be parsed thru the url strings.
Gonna update the sci-fi icon today :) , looks alot nicer then the et one :P

/Edit:

http://emulepawcio.sourceforge.net/HHAH ... -forum.png the new icon for sci-fi :)
Also updated the aio package with the new icon.

Quote:
1. HQ releases
2. movie requests
3. screeners & unverified releases
4. horror series


I'd use:
1. Forum all
2. Movie Releases (best way to handle it I'd say :) )
3. Requests (all)
4. Misc Search
This makes it very easy since I have the forums grouped in an order to allow easy searching anyways. Restricting the category allows you to look through all movies, all other releases, requests, smalltalk or help/site

It's easy that way because you can search by category rather than forum :) I've posted the urls needed for movie releases above (bare in mind these are urls split over two lines :) ) and also my other suggestions:

Sci-fi all:
Code:
http://scifi.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=-1&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200

Sci-fi all movies:
Code:
http://scifi.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=3&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200

Sci-fi Requests:
Code:
http://scifi.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=5&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200

Sci-fi Misc:
Code:
http://scifi.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=4&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200


forum all:
Code:
http://forum.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=-1&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200

forum all movies:
Code:
http://forum.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=3&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200

forum requests:
Code:
http://forum.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=7&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200

forum misc:
Code:
http://forum.dead-donkey.com/search.php?mode=results&search_keywords=%s&search_terms=any&search_author=&search_forum=-1
&search_time=0&search_fields=all&search_cat=8&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC&show_results=topics&return_chars=200


%s = Search string

For scifi it might be good to restrict by series instead of/in complement to one of them, since its a big part of scifi... on movies, I think restricting to an individual forums since movies may only be available on VHS or TV rip only.

Thanks for all the work :beerchug: :beerchug:
