I have added SearchH http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/KmmSearchH
to the MacroLibrary http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/MacroLibrary
Some users have previously asked about having a way to recall previous web searches. I have written a macro and JScript, which will show the searches that are in the user’s history.dat file for those search engines in the prefs.js file. I cannot claim to be an expert in web searching using KM so, I am asking for some user feedback. You should consider this a beta version of SearchH. I had planned to put this macro in forum before the MacroLibrary, but was unable to do so. http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?1,80354
One item on which I need some help is the “general.searchEngine" item in prefs.js. I did not do anything with that pref because the engine was also in the “plugins.macros.search.engine[0,1,xx}.url”. I don’t know if that will always be the case.
Another item is where to display the page with the search results. I am using KM 1.5beta1 and I like having the results in a new tab. Earlier versions do not have tabs and I think the “kLayers “ does not yet work in 1.5. I started the project having the results open in the current window, but that might force someone with a slow connection and/or small cache to reload from the net in order to go back one page. Another option is to open the results in a new window. I am unsure if that aversely affects resources, but it should work for all versions of KM.
The last item is the menu system for SearchH. It is under the right-click of the History button. Is the wording in any way ambiguous?
All feedback and helpful hints will be appreciated.
