Hey Everybodyhttp://friendsforever.foren-city.de/images/smiles/a010.gif

I just wanted to let you know that I have made a Firefox Search Plug-in for KnittingPatternCentral.com. Now we can search the best pattern site directly from the best browser ever, IMO. This is my first plug-in ever and I really proud. http://img99.exs.cx/img99/8577/yupi3ti.gif Anyways, after I made the plug-in for KPC I discovered it has a sister site for crochet. Why I didn't know that before I'll never know, however I didn't want CPC to feel left out so I made a plug-in for everyone who crochets too. You can find both of these plug-ins at http://mycroft.mozdev.org/. Search for Knitting Pattern Central or Crochet Pattern Central from the homepage to download. If you need any help let me know!

Ahhh! Finally a man who fully appreciates my geekiness. :inlove:

Thanks Adian. I'm glad you love it. I would really appreciate it if you would spread the word to any other knitting/crochet sites that you cruise.http://www.darth-martin.de/forum/files/ieweglovefx_167.gif

So very cool, Jessi! I just switched over to Firefox earlier today when I found a utility on Version Tracker that would let me move my bookmarks over from Safari. So now I feel like I'm TOTALLY hooked up!! Thanks & congrats!

I tried downloading it, but nothing happens. Where am I supposed to see it? Can you do a screenshot?

The little google searchbox next to your address bar lets you pick what you search. Click the google icon and a list should drop down to let you see what there is. And the plug-in should show up there.

Hey Everyone, I'm sorry for not replying to you all sooner. This is a long post so if you don't want to read the entire message just look for your name and go from there.

awesome thanks! Now i want to know how to make plug-ins :)
Thanks Angela! Making search engine plug-ins is easy. You just have to know a bit of HTML, know what type of search engine the site uses, and know how to make the site's little icon in the address bar into a 16 x 16 pixel jpg, gif, or png. Mozilla only supports the GET method. However, you can make plug-ins for search engines that use the POST method. It's just harder because you have to know how to recognize a POST engine then know how to convert it to GET. Knitting/Crochet Pattern Central both use the POST method, so it took me longer to make them than it would have taken me otherwise. You can go to http://mycroft.mozdev.org/ and click "Contribute" at the top of the page and there is a tutorial. Be aware though that it's written for webdevelopers. At least that's how I felt while reading it and they don't even mention anything about POST, so your on your own if the site you want to make the plug-in for uses the POST method. Let me know if you need help or if you want I can try to make one for you.

So very cool, Jessi! I just switched over to Firefox earlier today when I found a utility on Version Tracker that would let me move my bookmarks over from Safari. So now I feel like I'm TOTALLY hooked up!! Thanks & congrats!
Thanks Julie! I'm glad you joined us.http://www.informanews.net/IPBforum/style_emoticons/default/yeah.gif Isn't Firefox great?

I'm glad you've been converted, Crystal. :cheering: Firefox is wonderful. It really kicks the crap out of IE.http://img57.exs.cx/img57/8852/203010149541a36196c008f0cy.png

Here's the screenshot Jan. Let me know if you still have problems. I can send you the files directly if you want.

Oh that's why I don't see it. I got rid of the google search bar. :rollseyes: I'll have to put it back and see if I like it. I don't like clutter so I clean us much as I can. :roflhard:

EDIT! It works, it works! Very cool!!! Thanks Jessi!

Yay! :cheers: I'm glad it works for you Jan. I'm a minimalist too but I really like the search bar. Use it for awhile and you will see just how convenient it really is.

Love the second emoticon in your siggy Jesse :thumbsup:

Unfortunately, I do not use Firefox. It worked too slow on my comp, so I ditched it. Plus I couldn't get the add-ons to work. Great idea though!

Thanks! I'm sorry Firefox didn't work out for you. You might want to give Firefox another shot because we've just had a major up date, v1.5, and I know Mozilla has improved the speed issue.
