My Plugins Not Working

Since updating to Mountain Lion a number of my created Plugins simply don’t seem to be working effectively — this might just be chance.

For example, if I use my Guardian newspaper search I often get no results at all when a similar search on the site brings up a lot of stuff.

My agentQuery code seems to be right. Is there something esle that I might have done to render my searches useless?

Did you update only Mac OS X or DEVONagent Pro too? And did you test the plug-in (via Windows > Plug-ins & Scanners) or could you post them so that we could test this over here? Maybe the websites have changed lately and the plug-ins need some maintenance. Thanks in advance!

This one searched Birmingham City Council Website and worked fine for years:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> CrawlDelay 0.125 Description Searches on the website < Query_>. EngineSite Query_ Identifier Info Birmingham City Council Plugin LinksMatching * Query_* Name Birmingham City Council Operators 59 Version 1.0

Here is another for the Guardian newspaper site.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> Description Searches the web using <>. EngineUrl Identifier Info The Guardian Plugin Name The Guardian OffsetPerPage 1 Operators 167423 ParseLinks ResultsPerPage 10 Start 0 Version 1.0

This plug-in is actually buggy, just replace it with a new one by choosing File > New Plug-In and entering the URL “” (without quotes).

The second plug-in seems to be working but is using too many links and therefore creating too much traffic. Here’s an optimized version:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
	<string>Searches the web using &lt;;.</string>
	<string>The Guardian Plugin</string>
	<string>&lt;div class="refinements"&gt;</string>
	<string>&lt;form id="searchform" method="GET"&gt;</string>
	<string>The Guardian</string>

Thanks Chris — much appreciated — as good a service as ever!
