Searchhighlight plugin google issue

Post by Matthias2 » Tue Mar 25, 2014 10:23 am

Hi, :)

Searchhighlight Plugin does not work with google anymore. Using Bing it still works.

Can someone confirm the problem?

Thanks a lot!

Could be that due to privacy issues Google might remove the searchparameter in the referrer/URL string, so the plugin can no longer pick up on it?
