Are there any plans for a browser extension to search Confluence? instead of having to click a confluence bookmark and then type something in the search box, it would be easier to be able to do that right away.
or am i missing something that already exists?
On any site running Confluence if you right-click in the Confluence search box you'll get an option to:
I suspect there are similar options for IE and Opera as well, but I don't have these browsers at hand to check.
If you added the keyword "confluence", for example, you could then type "confluence<SPACE><your search term>", e.g. "confluence user macros" in the browser address bar and it will automatically search the Confluence site that you added.
Does that do what you want?
thanks andrew, i didn't know this was possible, and it is certainly helpful. however, is there no option to have a search with autocomplete on? in my experience, after a while and with many users it may become difficult to remember the exact page where you put something, and then autocomplete helps a lot.
I'm not aware of a way to add auto-complete to the standard keyword search in a browser, but it may be possible to write an extension or add-on to do this.
I did a quick search for existing extentions and add-ons for Chrome and Firefox and found the following:
but I don't think any of them quite do what you want - though the Atlassian History extension for Chrome is very useful for keeping track of which pages you visited in a site powered by an Atlassian application.
To my delight, I found that this "just works" in Chrome:
Firefox still support OpenSearch metas. It would require Atlassian's developers to put back the metas & XML to allow this feature to work in major browsers.
I would love to know also. It used to work for me "by default". I would type "con", <TAB>, and it would auto-complete to "search confluence" and then I would type in my search term. Fantastic functionality. Sadly, I cleared my cookies one day, and the functionality stopped -- I'm guessing that wasn't a coincidence.
