OpenSearch Support

The search interface also has an embedded Open Search description. This means that modern browsers can use the Quick Search box (to the right of the address bar) to perform searches on Webinator.

  • Bring up the search interface for the profile of your choice

  • Hit the "down" arrow next to the Quick Search box

  • Choose "Add Search Provider..." to add Webinator to the list of available searches.

Internet Explorer users can find more detailed instructions at

Adding strictSpec=Y to the Open Search Description URL will cause the Webinator to truncate various fields as required by the specification. In practice, this isn't necessary as browsers handle longer names.
