Ok - so as some of you know, I'm a Joomla! developer.

As part of my job, I have to goto our tracker to lookup and/or mark details on bugs. It's a bit of a pain to:

  1. Goto
  2. Login
  3. Goto the Joomla Tracker
  4. Find the bug to work on
  5. Read bug
I was hoping to find a faster way. IE comes to the rescue - well, sorta. I remember adding a PHP tag to IE so long ago that allowed me to do php searches against the site faster. I wondered if I could do the same, in FF against J!Code?

  1. Click on Bookmarks
  2. Hover over Quick Searches
  3. Right click on any of the items
  4. Select 'New Bookmark'
  5. Type in a name for the book mark
  6. Location will be:
  7. Create a keyword (I used jcode)
Now, in my URL (ALT-D) i just type 'jcode trackerid' and I'm off to the races!

Of course, you can use this trick for any site/project - but this was what I wanted it for.
