Add Google Search to 'Search' Drop Down Menu

Unlike other Google Search codes that have been submitted here under 3.5, this one uses the free 'Google on your site' search, so everyone can use it easily. The code has also been modified a bit so it integrates fully with the design your forum, and results will open in a new window so users don't inconvieniently have to leave your site to view results.

Template Mods: 1
Install Time: Just a minute or two

------------------------------
Installation

You can download a copy of these instructions. See the attached txt file.

1) Open 'navbar' template.

2) FIND:-

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

3) UNDERNEATH, ADD:-

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

4) Enjoy.

-----------------------------------

For the Google Icon (which must be included, Google will be grumpy if it isn't) I have hosted it on Imageshack for this mod. If you wish to host it yourself, just download the attached image, upload it to your server and edit the URL in the code accordingly. I had to change the image because the original is rather too large.

You may also want to change the size of the input box for forum search from '20' to '25' so it is the width of the menu once the Google Search is included.

I had a look before submitting and found that the others involved adsense search and there was talk about customer numbers etc.

is it possible to make this work by using actual websites search function? for example a dictionary website that offers searches for words. if given permission from another website could i have the same functionality as this google search function? i direct search link to thier content?

ive added this to my search module for vbadvance portal.

it shows up fine but when you enter text into the text box and click search, it takes you to the vB page saying no words match your search. the google function is not actually working.

is there a way to make it work?

thanks

I tried this in 3.6.0
If you add this below it wont open in a new window nor search google but instead show

Board Message

Please specify some words or valid user names to search on. There were no matches for those that you specified.
