IEblog: Adding Search providers to IE 7 using OpenSearch 1.1

MSDN Library: Search Provider Extensibility in Internet Explorer

Basically, you need to create a web page, incorporate a method for IE7 to "see" the custom search, here are a couple examples:

The following code adds the search provider by clicking a link.

<a href="#" onclick="window.external.AddSearchProvider('http://www.example.com/provider.xml')">Add Search Provider Example</a>  

Making Search Provider Discoverable

<link title="My Provider" rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" href="http://www.example.com/provider.xml">  

Here is the required XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> 
- <OpenSearchDescription xmlns="http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/">
  <ShortName>WOT</ShortName> 
  <Description>WOT provider</Description> 
  <InputEncoding>UTF-8</InputEncoding> 
  <Url type="text/html" template="https://www.mywot.com/scorecard/{searchTerms}" /> 
  </OpenSearchDescription>

If you're installing this locally, from your PC and not by uploading it to an online website, remove the "http://example.com/ from the anchor / link tag. Save both the HTML and the XML file in the same folder and point your browser to the local web page.

Firefox[edit]

requires version 2.x and newer.
