WikiSearch allows players to quickly and easily get the answers to a variety of frequently asked questions via a single in-game command. Automatically generate and shorten search URLs for a number of wikis and other searchable websites; then make use of the results yourself, send them to a specific other player, or broadcast them globally in server-wide chat.
- Use the /wikisearch command to search one of the available wikis or other searchable sites.
- Control who sees your search results: just yourself, a specific other player, or everyone logged into the server.
- Choose which wiki or other searchable site to use for each search. A number of commonly referenced sites, including the Minecraft wiki and Let Me Google That For You, are searchable right out of the box.
- Heavily configurable. Easily add your own wikis and other searchable sites, change which wiki is treated as the default, or edit the format used to display search results in chat.
- Permissions-based. Control which players or groups can make use of which features of the plugin.
The VoxelPlugineering Team's as-yet-unreleased VoxelKnowledge plugin served as a major source of inspiration during WikiSearch development. Check out some of the VoxelPlugineering Team's other work – they're behind a number of solid, high-quality plugins that are great for taking a creative-oriented server to the next level.

WikiSearch was originally developed for the RemyPas Minecraft Server. The server's plugineering team is looking to take on another developer or two; if you're interested in working on stuff like WikiSearch or one of our other plugins, be sure to shoot me an email so we can talk about what I'm looking for in a dev.
