Description: ------------ How about a google search "shortcut" such as an interwiki link? E.g. [gg:my very own search|alternative Text] [gggroups:whatever] [|what text ever] A usual interwiki link can't handle it right now, because the search texts need to contain spaces sometimes. Wikiwords aren't supposed to contain them. Therefore, it's also impossible to divide the alternative Text by a spacebar. We must use something else then, e.g. a pipe |. What do you think about this?

Hi, Pay -- It's a neat idea, but I do not think I'll be adding this to the standard distrbution any time soon. I may change my mind later, though. If you want to implement itself yourself, instead of Interwiki or URL, it sounds like a perfect example for a macro. For example: [[google q="my very own search" text="link text"]] [[google:groups q="whatever"]] [[google:msgid q="" text="what text ever"]] Then you can write up a Text_Wiki_*_Google ruleset for parsing and rendering. Hope this helps.
