MK search

MK Search is a Joomla package (component and module) to provide a searchable drop down menu on your site. Unlike most Joomla search components MK Search is not a component to search your site for contents. MK Search will search throught a predefined list of URLs presented in a drop down menu list. The aim of the component is to provide a list of external resources like web sites and make it easy for users to find and goto the selected site. You can even put links to your own site in the component to make it easy to find pages/articles atc on your site.

The component allows you to add a list of sites by entering name of site and the site's URL. Those sites are then available in the module in a searchable auto complete list. Find the wanted site and go to it! Really nice if you have a lot of links to present for the users of your site.

The demo provides a list of about 330 Norwegian online news sites. The search box supports autocomplete. Start entering some letters and the drop down list suggest sites with the search pattern you enter. Choose the wanted news site and hit the Go to... button. The site opens in a new browser tab!
