Search Plugin for Pepperdine University
One of the handy features of IE7 and Ff2 is the search plugin box. This box in the top-right corner of your browser allows you to search specific sites like Google, Yahoo, Amazon, Buy.com... without having to leave the page you're currently on. Using the CTRL-K shortcut (at least in Ff) allows you to shortcut directly to the search box and type in your search term for an immediate search of your chosen site.
So, I just created a search plugin for the Pepperdine Website. Any of you who are affiliated with the University may find this a helpful little shortcut.
To install this into your browser, simply go to searchplugins.net and search for Pepperdine (this link will take you directly to the right page). To install the plugin, just click the "I" next to Pepperdine University. It will ask you to confirm, and click "YES" or "OK", whatever.
After that, you can always search PU's website from any page you're on. So, I used it right away when I was looking for tix to see a movie at Malibu's new theater. It's affiliated with Hollywood Cinemas and I wasn't sure if I could get tix at OneStop. So while I was on the Hollywood Cinemas page, I simply CTRL-K'ed to the search box and typed "one-stop movies" and immediately found the page listing all the supported theaters. Quick and easy...
