Including AniDB anime search in Opera

Post by exp » Mon Aug 11, 2003 4:02 pm

For those of you who use a real browser (hrhr) this might be of interest:

Just edit one entry the search.ini in your profile directory to look like this or add a new one:

Code: Select all

[Search Engine 2]
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Search Type=1

Note that you might have to change the key and the number according to your other entries in that file.

Instead of making it manually better way is using Opera Search.ini Editor
(AniDB and Animeinfo are here already defined)

Import this into registry:

Code: Select all


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\anidb]
" "="+"
Or download and run this .reg file: if you too lazy to do it and you can now type in IE's address bar things like "anidb eva" to search for all anime containing "eva" in its name on AniDB.

I searched about half an hour without finding the keys neccessary to do that - finally assuming that my memory tricked me and such a function never existed in IE...

Well - since we have most browsers together now, who will take on the task of compiling this info in a sticky for the FAQ-forum? (as suggested by Rar)

*takes one step back*

Now if we all do that and wahaha doesn't, he'll end up doing it voluntarily *snicker*

First version done (-> docts internal). Nobody will read the crap I wrote but what the heck :)

Will be published once I get the ok from the others or somebody re-wrote what I wrote.

OooOoOo~h daaaamn, so there was a way already :(
And I lost 30 min of my life&energy to make something like that... :lol: yet I'm happy :D
So to not make it waste, here it is, "For those of you who use a real browser " :P ->

You must know about that kind of opera search ->
So to make it with Ani~>
Tools -> Preferences -> Search -> Add
"an" can be replaced by whatever you like. After the OPERAtion is done, you just type the "an animename" in the address bar & GO ^^
Search Code(Address) - copypasta

Code: Select all
Well, I guess I just re-discoverd the hot water, as we bulgarians say, but it's a good feeling... the hot water :lol:

Actually, if you put this into a webpage:

Code: Select all

<a href="opera:/edit/Search,%22,,Wikipedia">Add AniDB Search Box to Opera's "My Buttons"</a>
Then you'll have a clickable link for Opera that will create an AniDB search box in your "My Buttons".

Similarly, there is this:

Code: Select all

<a href="opera:/button/Copy,,,%22AniDB%22,Search%20Web%20&%20New%20browser%20window%20&%20Go%20to%20page,%22">Add AniDB Search Selected Text to Opera's "My Buttons"</a>
That will add a button in your "My Buttons" which takes the selected text on a webpage and does an AniDB search on it (for the lazy otaku. :wink: )

[Note: I didn't test those, but they should work.]
