    Greetings and thanks for the plugin ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. great plugin..

    But, can you tell me how to call permalink search result?

    I wanna create Search Query with Link, like

    <a href=”<?php xxx ?>” title=”<?php yyy ?>”><?php the_search_query(); ?></a>

    What xxx and yyy should be replaced?

  3. Any plans on updating it to be compatible with WP 3.0?? It stopped working for real.


  4. Indeed, I was looking for alternatives to this plugin which would work on WP 3.0 but haven’t found any ๐Ÿ™

    I hope it’ll get updated!
