    Your presentation mode very detailed and professionally prepared. You have outlined your points in a systematic and chronological way and the topic concerning the plugin has been communicated effectively to users. I look forward to reading more articles about present and future technology from this site. Many thanks for this article. If you want to consider our Friv games, I would be very grateful. Thanks very much!

    Somewhere I read that they provide no ordering (ranking) of search results, which makes them ineffective when thousands of matching documents are found. Working on my web Friv Top Games and need Postgres Full Text Search implemented.

    Thanks you very much! I have no more ideas for creating new plug-ins. In order to find out in what format the search plugin can use the URL Helper. On my projects Friv 2, Friv 4, Friv 1000 and Kizi Games search is already realized with the help of this plugin. I also think this topic will be useful not only for me - perhaps someone else besides me will undertake the creation of new plug-ins. Many thanks for this article.
