yahoo group

Anyone had success creating a search pluging for a subscribed yahoo group?


As far as I can tell it’s only possible to search for groups but not in groups. But maybe I’m wrong as I don’t use Yahoo & its groups?

I’m able to great a search link in Omniweb, which pulls up the contents of a specific Yahoo groups forum.
This is the url it returns for a search of “aggression.” : … n&charset=

Any idea how to copy the same search funtionality that Omniweb is using with their “Add Search Shortcut” feature?

Could you send a screenshot of the shortcut’s parameters to cgrunenberg - at Thanks in advance!

You could use a simple plugin like…

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">

…and enter “casi aggression” (without quotes) afterwards in the address bar of browser windows. But it’s not (yet) usable for real searching.

Thanks for the quick response.
When trying this, an error of “too many HTTP redirects” comes up.
