    Hi Ralph,
    I think your wikipedia search block will be a very nice addition to many Moodle sites. Thanks smile
    I wonder if it wouldn't be unpolite for me to ask you to change the hard-wired "Search" text in the search button for an English language string that would be translatable in AMOS for non-English Moodle users ?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi German,
    The search button is not hard coded. The problem is that the translation must be done now in the AMOS utility.

    Hi Ralph,
    My fault sad
    Silly old me, I forgot I am using Moodle branch 2.5dev and the plugin is registered for 2.0 to 2.4, but once I copied the language strings from the 2.4 language pack it worked beautifully in spanish (which I had translated yesterday at AMOS).
    Thanks for this nice plugin.

    Hi Ralf,
    We have been using your block in our school moodle (thanks!). Can you please place this block in github? I'd like to include your plugin in my "git upgrade script " to make all future upgrades automatic. Thanks
