Google Search Integration
v1.0


time to install: less than 5 minutes
level of difficulty: Beginner/Simple

This simple hack adds a Google search engine to your site, or members can also search the entire World Wide Web.

1) Upload googlesearch.php to your forum root directory and also upload the google_logo.gif to your images directory, and take note of what the path to the images directory is.

2) Go to ADMIN CP -> STYLES & TEMPLATES -> ADD NEW TEMPLATE and create a template called googlesearch with the contents of template.googlesearch.txt, making sure to edit the necessary changes to the template to suit your forum. Change yoursite.com to the name of your site, and make sure that the path to the google_logo.gif is correct.

3) Go to Adimin CP ->Styles & Templates -> Edit Templates and open the NAVBAR template and search for the following:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

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

4) That's it! Go to http://yoursite.com/forum/googlesearch.php or visit the Quick Links in your NAVBAR to view your new Google Search page.

OPTIONAL: If you want to add more than one site to search you can add another radio button by editing the googlesearch template the following way:

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

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

Make sure to edit the above to reflect the site you wish to add: substitute anothersite.com with the name and address of the site you want to add. You can obviously add as many sites/radio buttons as you want.

Here is a screenshot. I know this is a simple hack, but I couldn't find another version of it here, so I decided to see what I could do.

How about making it into Google Suggest? That'd be nice.
