    Slight update in the FileTrip URL scheme:

    you can now perform an instant search by entering search keywords in the URL, immediately after the domain name.
    Add anything you want after http://filetrip.net, and it will take you to the search results page automatically.

    For example:
    - http://filetrip.net/AKAIO
    - http://filetrip.net/Wood R4
    - http://filetrip.net/anything you want
    ...


    additionally i've just added a new BBCODE tag:
    Code:
    [ft]wood R4[/ft]
    test:
    Find 'wood R4' on FileTrip.net

    Searching a file on FileTrip is easier than ever!

    this will make it so much easier to link people to stuff they ask about.

    Really no point enabling it in the shoutbox.
    1. The external shoutbox needs to get fixed first before anything
    and 2. The point?

    Anyway, test 1 2 3.
    Find 'Prowler485' on FileTrip.net
    edit: disappoint.

    There would be far more disappointment if there were results for that. [​IMG]

    Nice additions that have been made.
