Hide w3schools

CRX id


Description from extension meta

This extension simply adds -site:w3schools.com to your google.com and google.co.uk searches to prevent w3schools results.

Description from store This plugin will redirect any requests to google.com/search and google.co.uk/search pages so that the query includes the term -site:w3schools.com. This means your results will not include any results from that site while still maintaining a full search result set. (Nothing is removed from your results, they never come in in the first place) This plugin is aimed at web developers and web designers. Source code available at https://bitbucket.org/cowboyecosse/hide-w3schools Changelog: 0.2.1 - Fixed bug with google maps searches giving server error message - Fixed bug where # in search string was being ignored --- v 0.2 - Initial release

One problem/bug I have found is that if you search for something with a "#" it will not work correctly. If you search for "C# generic method" your search will turn into just "C".

  • (2016-01-06, v:0.2) Kyle Pittman: Bug with # symbol
    Thanks for making an extension like this! One issue: If I search for anything with a "#" in it, the search gets clipped off at the # symbol. I'm assuming it's because the search term isn't URLEncoded. For example, if I search for "C# generic method", google searches for just the letter "C", but the URL is written as "https://www.google.com/search?q=c# generic method+-site:w3schools.com". I'm guessing the #... part of the url is interpreted by the browser as an anchor name. The correct search term would be "?q=c%23 generic method+-site:w3schools.com" to escape the "#" character.
