There are a number of different ways to use Search Plug-ins. Note that you may need
to change the creator code of a plug-in file to WannaBe's creator code (WBWB) for some
of the methods to work. To change
the creator code of a plug-in file, you can use a file utility such as ResEdit, or use
the Change Creator To WannaBe utility
found on the WannaBe download page.
3 Ways to use Search Plug-ins
- double-click on the plug-in in the Finder
