Description

Add a search box to the right-top of the page, so simple queries can be performed without going to the search page. An OpenSearch plugin would be nice too http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Creating_OpenSearch_plugins_for_Firefox.

Put the file haiku.xml at http://www.haiku-os.org/haiku.xml and add the following line to the <head> section of relevant/all Haiku-OS.org pages.

<link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" title="Haiku" href="http://www.haiku-os.org/haiku.xml">

for autodiscovery.

The title and URL need to match the ShortName and location of haiku.xml.

Is this is put on hold due to CMS complexity? If the functionality is desired one could in the meantime add an entry field/form which merely calls Google with "foo site:haiku-os.org". Not as cool as something local though, and there's missed intelligence opportunity for Haiku, but it may lessen the load/traffic (if that is or will be a problem post-release).

Is this what you're looking for?

This is being pushed forward because there are some major changes (behind the scenes) coming up. These will take precedence before we will implement new features.

Perhaps he means something like what we have in the NorCal HUG website?

http://norcal-hug.org

If that's the case, it will be there once the upgrade to Drupal 5 is done. Actually, it is possible to enable the search box in our current website, but for some reason it is not possible to give focus to the search field using the mouse. Any ideas?

Pushing forward. This is not possible with the current template. This should be fixed at a later point in life.

Don't give up that easily. :) This is working on the norcal-hug.org site, which also uses D5 with the shijin theme, so it is definitely possible and not that hard. Did you try the modified Shijin theme that I emailed you?

Anyway, as I mentioned to you on this haiku-web list post...

http://www.freelists.org/post/haiku-web/new-feature-New-way-of-maintaining-developer-documentation,8

...I am willing to work on theming and/or css related stuff, including cleaning up the theme and trying to fix a lot of the oddities that exist in the current shijin theme.

My offer still stands, but as I said on the above-mentioned post, I would like to work locally rather than remotely, so I would need a full backup of the site that I can put on my home server.

Replying to [nielx]:

Because I consider user data to be sensitive, I think we should try our best and keep the data stored and protected in one location. I've instead been setting up a very bare-bones Drupal install which should be enought to play with the theme and the blocks. The test install is located at http://experimental2.web.haiku-os.org. The only thing left for me to do is add some book pages. That should be enough to play around with the theme. I will make this downloadable ASAP.

Will that work for you?

Maybe, but it would greatly reduce the number of scenarios where the changes can be tested. I suppose your concern is the privacy of the registered users; if that's the case, perhaps you can just make a copy the current site, and do a bulk delete of all users except the admin. That would address your data sensitivity concerns and would give me a full site to play/test with.

Does that work for you? :)

Fixed. It was a minor CSS tweak. Tested the new CSS on IE7, Google Chrome and Firefox 3.
