Nice!

Any way to implement that adsense search? Like the one on phpbb.com?

Glad you like it.

I 'think' for adsense search you will need to use viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2275361

You could replace MY FORUM with BOARD_URL. No need for manual editing then. BOARD_URL is a template variable already provided by the core.

Cheers Martti. After I had uploaded it, I wondered if it would work that way. I'll go and redo it now

Update from previous version:
  • Download the latest release and unzip it.
  • Disable Google Search in the ACP
  • Delete googlesearch folder from the server
  • Upload the the folder googlesearch to root/ext/hifikabin/
  • Enable it in the ACP
