    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.

    Absolutely agree with your opinion! But in order to create new plug-ins it is necessary to have a precise technical task. I also use the Moodle search plugin on my Friv, Juegos Kizi, Affen Spiele and Friv 2 sites and are quite happy with the result. But for the development of new versions, let's exchange ideas. Together we will turn the mountains!
