Updates on ThoughtsPrevail ...

While we are on any blog, it is always difficult to search for a particular article without opening the blog.I also faced a similar problem a few days back, when I was searching for an article on my blog, so either I used to Google it or search on my blog.I am sure that all of us face this issue with many blogs and hence, there are three things which can at least make your blog search/reading efficient and easy smile These are some small yet useful updates for this blog...

1. Firefox Search Plugin :
Firefox search plugin always comes in very handy when you are searching on some of your favourite websites like Google, LinkedIn, Yahoo etc. Just as it is cool & faster to use it for websites, it would be even better to use it for your favourite blogs !!!

You can find the code of ThoughtsPrevail's Firefox Plugin here.Below is a small snapshot of the source code

ThoughtsPrevail Search pluginIf you have to use this code for your blog or any of your favourite blogs , just change the code in the box with the "Search Format" used by the Search Engine used on that blog.You can use 16*16 Icon for your Blog as well.A small snapshot for the search in action with Firefox


How to use:
  • Download ThoughtsPrevail.xml from here.Copy it into "..\..\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins\" folder [in case of Windows] and into "/home/user-name/.mozilla/firefox/q11f7htt.default/searchplugins/" [in case of UBuntu]
  • Restart Firefox and you are done.
2. Thoughtsprevail Toolbar :
Techcrunch toolbar has been quite helpful and it was a nice experience to use the same.Hence, I have used the same FREE service named Conduit to create the ThoughtsPrevail toolbar.Below is a snapshot of the toolbar:


3. ThoughtsPrevail Mobile Version :
Though it is too late to create a mobile version of the blog [after 3.5 years of blogging] , but finally ThoughtsPrevail has a mobile version wink You can check out ThoughtsPrevail mobile version here.There are other websites like Mofuse and you can check out it's mobile version here and the I-Phone version here.Some interesting techniques to make your blog mobile can be found here



Do let me know, if there are any other ways you can make your blog search/read faster so that I can add the same on ThoughtsPrevail.Now I can definitely expect more people checking out ThoughtsPrevail from their BlackBerry or I-Phone wink
