      Description

      Good evening

      I implemented the Firefox search plugin - see http://www.doctrine-project.org/jira/browse/DWEB-8 - that is published via the following LINK element in the HEAD of your pages.

      <link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" title="Doctrine API Documentation" href="https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/file/67525/doctrine_1.1_api-20091022.xml?confirmed">

      The plugin does not work now that structure of your API documentation has changed. I have updated, and improved the plugin. The new download URL follows.

      http://dadl.danbettles.net/search_plugins/orm/1.2/download

      If you want to view the source first, simply follow http://dadl.danbettles.net/search_plugins/orm/1.2/view_source.

      I'm still maintaining the plugin page on Mozilla Add Ons, for now, but by linking to my site, you can be sure that visitors to doctrine-project.org will always get the most up-to-date version.

      The biggest, and most useful, change to the plugin is the addition of suggestions. My site regularly indexes your documentation and serves-up suggestions as you type. Should a user press "Enter" without choosing a suggestion in Firefox, a Web page listing all matches will be displayed. If a user types a name that exactly matches an item in the documentation, the relevant page in the API documentation will be displayed.

      If the service proves to be useful, I'll make a few changes and publish an ORM 2.0 plugin. I may also set things up to index function names, too.

      Sorry it took me so long to update the plugin - it's been a while since I worked with Doctrine, so I hadn't noticed the changes to your site.

      Please let me know how you get on.

        I've just had an email from Mozilla to let me know they've reviewed, and approved, the plugin. This means it appears in add-on searches, and you can now "Add to Firefox" immediately - it won't ask if you're sure any more.
