Since I couldn't find any information about Opera's seach.ini format, I wrote up a documentation on Opera's search.ini [schrode.net], explaining what each entry means.

Created my own search.ini (for German users) and adjusted some buttons.ini entries to make Opera display the correct search buttons.

Has been tested with Opera for Windows build 1056.

If you find any errors, have suggestions,comments or other information on search.ini, please let me know.

Excellent!

(and make sure to back up a few directories folks)

Luma is a rare one - an actual Linux Opera user ;)

Thanks for the positive feedback and for adding a link in the FAQ! I improved the personal bar screen shots and generated a PDF file that should print smoothly. :)

Opera for Linux is really great. In some regards it's even better than the Windows version (e.g., cookie "editor"). Okay, it doesn't have integrated e-mail and newsreader clients but that even reflects the Linux philosophy: a tool should do one job only. And do it perfect. Opera is the Browser and doing a good job. :)

Someone wrote a Opera 6 Search.ini Editor 0.20 [strony.wp.pl] (Op6sed.exe). Since I hardly ever use Windows, I haven't tried the program. Use at your own risk.

I just found out that more Search Engine entries actually have a special meaning and updated my documentation.

I've had a couple of requests for a webmasterworld entry in the search.ini. Here is what I use (I'll break the search string line so we don't have to side scroll):

[Search Engine 4]
Name=WebmasterWorld.com
URL=http://www.searchengineworld.com/sitesearch /index.cgi?Match=1&hits+per+page=20&Realm=Webmaster+World&Terms=%s
Query=
Key=w
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Encoding=
Search Type=3
