Make your own connector
Make your own connector

If the search provider supports OpenSearch standards then you can use the following code snippet

to built your search connector for that provider:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <OpenSearchDescriptionxmlns="" xmlns:ms-ose=""> <ShortName>Name of the Provider</ShortName> <Description>Description of the provider</Description> <Url type="application/rss+xml" template="Valid RSS link to search results”/> <Url type="text/html" template="Valid RSS link to search results"/> </OpenSearchDescription>

You can also make your own search provider for any website even if it doesn’t support OpenSearch standards by using Live Search. Here is the piece of code which i used to make a Wikipedia search connector for Federated Search in Windows 7.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <OpenSearchDescriptionxmlns="" xmlns:ms-ose=""> <ShortName>Wikipedia</ShortName> <Description>OpenSearch for Wikipediavia Windows 7 Search Federation.</Description> <Url type="application/rss+xml" template="{searchTerms};count=50&amp;format=rss"/> </OpenSearchDescription>

Simply copy/paste the above code in a notepad file and replace the text in Bold(Red) and save it as .osdxfile extension so that Windows 7 can recognize it as a valid Federated Search Connector file.
