Hey guys, i've been using this site for years and years, but i've recently fell in love with the Opera plugin for searching since im a firefox hater, it works great, and since FFox and Opera both have search plugins, i know some of you might still use IE7 sometimes like I do when im too lazy to open Opera or whatnot, so i tried to figure out a way to make a search plugin for IE7 for this site and well, i've found one that can do all of the search results but so far the first one i've figure out is just band searches..
SCREENSHOT/HELP
http://i16.tinypic.com/48w2an5.gif

Go here...
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/sea ... once2.aspx and then there is a box you can type in, you need to paste THIS -- http://www.metal-archives.com/search.ph ... &type=band into the URL box, and then give it a name, MA_Bands for example then click install.. then you will have a nifty drop-down box along with google, microsoft, yahoo, whatever else you use right next to your address bar, and i belive, if you analyse this URL http://www.metal-archives.com/search.ph ... &type=band and replace BAND with .... genre, lyrics, song, album, lineup,label,user,trade,wanted,col, you should be able to make all of the main page search options available as your plug-in, i hope some of you appreciate this :-) if not, oh well, i like it. (sorry for all the typing)


btw keep in mind it must have TEST where it is for string=, its how the website identifies the results to generate the plugin for you.

I will work on making the opera one for more than just bands if anyone would like? or maybe if you figure it out on your own, post and let us know!

One more thing

Maybe this can get added to the front page ? :-)

does ANYONE know of any friggin ID Taggers that allow you to pull info from this site?! I use Tag&Rename, it's badd-asss but im pissed none are customizeable and only let you use amazon.. half the good black metal bands on here arent on amazon :-P, for id tags/cover images.. let me know please if not maybe some of us can script one up maybe for foobar2k media player or some shit.

Thanks.

This info will probably be added to the front page soon. If you create more plugins, please post them here.

Haha. Sorry, but I'm not gonna post an IE plugin on the front page. Hell, if I listened to my inner voice, I'd block all IE users. ;)

I have nothing against IE, but this whole new IE 7 is crap and anyone who uses it should be killed to death by a dry baguette ;)

At least it is better than IE 6... at the moment.
