Google AJAX Search API
Can this be modified to display the Google Video Bar?

I find the Google News Bar extension to be very stable and easy to install and configure. It blends in well with the RSS extension used on the same page. I recommend the GNB extension. Brian7632416 21:02, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Edits to Article
I added my Web site to the bottom of the list, and re-ordered the list by date of addition to the list, oldest first, which I think is fair. Tidied up, and spell checked, too.Brian7632416 20:51, 29 April 2008 (UTC).
Multiple News Bars on Same Page?
- MediaWiki 1.14.0
- PHP 5.2.6 (cgi-fcgi)
- MySQL 4.1.22-log
- URL: DishiWiki.com
Has anyone been able to successfully place more than one Google News Bar on the same page? I can't.
<googleNewsBar newstitle="Food and Recipes in the News" newskey="food recipes new"></googleNewsBar>
<googleNewsBar newstitle="Celebrity Chefs in the News" newskey="celebrity chefs tv news"></googleNewsBar>
yields a correctly formed News Bar that uses parameters from the second instance, and leaves what ought to be a second instance of the News Bar in a blank but perpetual "loading..." state.
See my site/page: Food and Cooking News on DishiWiki.com
Any thoughts, anybody? Brian7632416 03:22, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
more then 4 News?
how can I change the number of news? (currently there are 4)
- Nobody an idea?
How can I view news in new page ?
Default is in the same page, so is there any way to click the news title open in new page ?
Google AJAX API key not needed anymore, how can i get it to work without this Api key?
- I believe all that's required for that is to change the line
$output .= "<script src='http://www.google.com/uds/api?file=uds.js&v=1.0&source=uds-nbw&key=" . $googleNewsBarKey . "' ";to
$output .= "<script src='http://www.google.com/uds/api?file=uds.js&v=1.0&source=uds-nbw' ";(removing the API field from the URL). I haven't tested this though, you might need a completely new URL structure. Assuming the above works, you can also remove the lines
$googleNewsBarKey = "put_your_google_api_key_here";and
global $googleNewsBarKey;. James Kevin Martindale (talk) 20:54, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
