      Description

      Problem:
      If you go to any of the English Moodle Docs pages the Firefox search bar will offer you to install a search plugin named "MoodleDocs (English)". However, if you proceed you will get an error message.

      Solution:
      The link tag in the head section of the web page looks like this:

      <link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" href="/en/opensearch_desc.php" title="MoodleDocs (English)" />

      However, the href attribute points to a non existent PHP page ("opensearch_desc.php") instead of to the XML file of the plugin (see https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Creating_OpenSearch_plugins_for_Firefox#Autodiscovery_of_search_plugins).

      This and other plugins can be found at http://mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=moodle for integrating them in the respective web pages.

      Kind regards,
      Frank

          The necessary link tag proposed in MDLSITE-626 is already in place, but points to the wrong file on the server.

          Reassigning to Jordan and hoping he can fix this Moodle Docs search as he did for the tracker.

          Thanks a lot Jordan, the 2.0 and other lang searches work perfectly, however I can't get the search to work for the dev docs or the 1.9 docs. Am I missing something?

          Fixed, the issue was with the link title, which now reflects version & lang e.g "MoodleDocs 2.0 (English)"
