New version of googleSearch (CSE) component v3.0.6 - open links in same window

Have just released a new version of googleSearch (CSE) component v3.0.6 - for Joomla 3.0 and above.

New Features

  • Added new parameter: use_https. Set this to "Yes" if your site is using https. Default is "No". This resolves the mixed content warning if you are using SSL certificate for your site:
  • Mixed Content: The page was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure script ''. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS."
  • Added new parameter: open_link_in_same_window. Set this to "Yes" if you want links to open in the same window. Default is "Yes". If set to "No", links will open in a new window.


  1. For this new version, you have to uninstall the old version first and re-install the new version - so that the 2 new parameters can be added.
  2. You may want to print or take note of the original settings first before you uninstall.
  3. I find it easier to open the page of the googleSearch Config in the browser, do the uninstall and re-install, open the Config page in a new browser window, and then you can copy and paste the settings from the old to the new page.
