Among the many smart access methods to get to information quickly on the PHP site, we provide sidebars for the most popular browsers used on different operating systems to access PHP.net pages easily. Here you can find setup and uninstall information for the browsers supported. Feel free to send in suggestions on how to implement our sidebar for another browser or how to enhance it's services by sending an email to the webmasters.
If you use Mozilla 0.9.4 or later, you can add our sidebar to your set. You can uninstall this sidebar using the "Customize Sidebar" dialog in Mozilla. To get more information on Mozilla sidebars see the Netscape Sidebar Howto.
For users of Mozilla Firefox who are interested in adding the search sidebar, they can also click the above link, and that will offer a new bookmark. Save that bookmark anywhere in your set, and whenever you try to open that, it will dispslay the search sidebar. You can remove the sidebar by removing the bookmark.
We also offer a plugin for the built-in Mozilla Search Sidebar, and this plugin will also work with the several Mozilla and Firefox search extensions as well as Sherlock on MacOSX. Install our sidebar plugin, and enjoy the integrated search in Mozilla. Sherlock users should save our phpnetsearch.src file to their 'Internet Search Sites' folder.
If you use Internet Explorer 5 or above on MacOS, open our sidebar page in a separate window. In that window, open the "Page Holder" tab on the left side of the window. Click "Add." If you want to keep it for future use, click on "Favorites" and select "Add to Page Holder Favorites." If you would like to read more about the Page Holder, see Microsoft's Macintosh IE page.
If you are using Opera, you can click on this link to add our sidebar to your set. You can uninstall the sidebar by right clicking on it's tab and choosing "Delete" from the context menu. Read more about Opera sidebars on this page.
