    For those that use opera as their browser here are some goodies for you to try out!

    OCAU Forum Search:
    First off you need to get the Opera Search.ini editor to use these plugins. Hopefully this can be changed with Opera 9, it will have the functionality to change your searches in the preferences :D But for now, http://opera-info.xorg.pl/en/download.html

    Ive got two different ones, they both do the same thing, just the naming is different..

    Fix Fast Forward
    For those that dont know what it is:
    To fix fast forward so it goes to the next page in the thread instead of next thread, goto start -> run and type
    Code:
    notepad "C:\Program Files\Opera\fastforward.ini"
    Then add ">=350" (without quotes) to the line below ";Special ones"

    OCAU Menu
    Inspired by the firefox menu extension i made one for opera.

    And thats it, comments and suggestions welcome

    Or open 'search.ini' in your Opera profile directory and add.
    Code:
    [Opera Search Engine]
    Name=&OCAU
    URL=http://forums.overclockers.com.au/search.php?
    Query=query=%s&showposts=0&do=process
    Key=o
    Is post=1
    Has endseparator=0
    Encoding=iso-8859-1
    Search Type=0
    Description=
    You can find the location of your profile directory from the opera:about page under Opera directory.

    Another change I make in the search.ini is to add a 'd' for dictionary searching. Allows for searching the default dictionary for words via the address by typing 'd <word>'.

    Code:
    [Search Engine 11]
    Name=Dictionary
    URL=http://redir.opera.com/dictionary/?query=%s
    Query=
    Is post=0
    Has endseparator=0
    Encoding=iso-8859-1
    Search Type=50
    Verbtext=17063
    Position=-1
    Nameid=0
    Key=d
    Nice! Never bothered with it on VB forums because of this. :)

    I made one earlier. ;) Was mentioned in another thread.
