Adds a Google Search box to your Forum. The responsive style uses the default 'Advanced Search' Icon to access the Advanced Search where the Google Search is also available. The Admin can choose whether the search appears in the Header, Navbar or on the Index underneath Breadcrumbs (which also adds the default search). The Extension is supplied with a "search the whole web" Google Search Engine ID, which can be replaced with your own custom ID if you wish. The results are shown in a Forum page.

The Search Boxes are disabled on unsupported browsers. Google Search is still available in Advanced Search options.

Automatic rtl switching included.

An error message is displayed if JavaScript disabled or Google blacklisted

You can also add your own Google Verification Code if you wish
