Plug-in for forums and website

Hello,

I want to make a plugin for searching in forums and websites.
Can anyone help me with this?

forums and websites are:
Bitcointalk
Reddit
Github
and other websites

Thanks! :smiley:

Followed the steps to create a new plug-in
I’ll just typed In the URL of the forum turn off all the other plug-ins and 0 result came out.
is this because the forum is password protected?

Same problems I have with Reddit, Github, and other websites.
0 results… :frowning:

The EngineSite option supports only websites and subdirectories indexed by Google/Bing, therefore the first plugin works (just checked this) but the second doesn’t. In addition, you might want to increase the CrawlDelay as the bitcointalk.org server returns HTTP 503 (“Service unanvailable”) errors quite often.
