XML Search Engine Import?

  • Idea
  • Updated 5 years ago
Is it possible in LunaScape to import/add XML search engine plugins, i.e. from the MyCroft project (http://mycroft.mozdev.org)?

I believe the XML format is universal and should work with IE/Chrome/Safari/other browsers too. Not all search engines' query URLs are as easily copied to the settings dialogue. I tried copying the XML files from my FF profile to LunaScape's folder with no luck.

FF add-on Add to Search Bar is what I normally use. I have quite a few search plugins in the FF profile, but LunaScape doesn't yet support automatic import of FF 4.x and 5.x profiles (and bookmarks/feeds/history are the only things available to import).

If not, this would be a very good thing to implement! (I am not a programmer myself but wonder if someone could make this possible if it isn't already!)

Hi Guest321,

Yes, you can add search engines to Lunascape. Have you try the following?
1. From the sidebar, Go to Settings > Search Engine
2. Right click Search Engine and go to Add New Search Engine...
3. Enter Title and URL; for instance (This is Bing's case),
4. Click OK to add the new engine

Then the new engine will be added in the Search Engine menu under Other Searches. You can simply drug it to move up to the main search engine menu or
can edit in Lunascape Setting > Tool Bar > Search Button

You can also see how to add new search engine in our online tutorial movie;
