Browser Integration
==Browser Integration==
For an overview of browser integration and some useful bookmarklets, please see [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Tools/Browser_Integration].
 
==Search Bookmarklets==
OrthodoxWiki's search can be accessed via a bookmarklet. This works with Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape 6/7, Beonex Communicator.
 
 
 
In Mozilla Firefox, follow these steps:
 
#Right click in the search field at the top of the page, and select "Add a Keyword for this Search".
#Enter "Wikipedia Quicksearch" for the name.
#Enter "w" (without the quotes) for the keyword.
#Change the bookmark folder if you wish, and click "Add".
 
In Mozilla and Netscape, follow these steps:
 
#Right click on the following web address and select "Bookmark this link": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=%s
#Go to Bookmarks, Manage Bookmarks. Choose the bookmark you have just created. Highlight the Bookmark and click Properties.
#In the dialogue that comes up, put a lowercase w in the keyword box.
#Click OK and close the properties box, then close the bookmark manager.
 
In Camino, use the Mozilla directions. Use Get Info (cmd-I) in the bookmarks manager to bring up the properties dialogue.
 
To search, go to the web address bar, enter "w <i>SEARCH_QUERY<i>" (without the quotes), and press enter.
===Searching with Firefox===
In process...
 
We hope to be able to make available a custom OrthodoxWiki search tool that you can add to the default Firefox, Mozilla, and Netscape ([http://mycroft.mozdev.org/ Mycroft]) search bar with a simple click.
 
This would include the following features:
* If you hold down the Alt key when you press Enter to invoke a search, Firefox loads the results in a new tab.
* If you drag and drop text onto the Search Box, Firefox fires off a search and loads the results in a new tab.
