Add LinkaGoGo search to Opera
April 17th, 2005
LinkaGoGo is a powerful online bookmark manager. I’ve been using it since 2002 on a regular basis and it is a truly remarkable service.
This tip will show you how to search your LinkaGoGo bookmarks from your Opera address or search bar without having to go to the Linkagogo site to invoke the search. This will work only for LinkaGoGo members, which starts at $3.95/year.
To add this search close Opera, find your Opera profile (same place where your adr file is located) and backup your search.ini file. Open the original and add the following:
[Search Engine [ID]]
Change [ID] with the first free search engine ID. Save the file, open Opera and type “L whatever” in your address bar and magic - your bookmarks that contain “whatever” are displayed in the browser. You can also perform the search by typing the text in the Opera search combo and select “LinkaGoGo” from the list of search engines.
If you don’t feel comfortable editing search.ini yourself, you can use the great Opera search.ini editor from this site.
