Does this limit results to just XF threads? My google custom search is for my whole domain.

You can exclude sites/part of domain/url pattern by using Exclude feature of Google Custom Search. Create a new Search Engine in GCS, exclude what you want, save it, then input that GCS uniqueid into this add-on's option.

May I suggest/request a "Similar Thread" feature for the bottom of each thread like in vB?

Dinh Thanh, thank you for this addon. It would be great to have an option to exclude some of the forums for the search to happen.

There is no template. This results are from Goolge Custom Search.
You may find these options in Google Custom Search control panel.
hmm. that's unfortunate, it seem that even creating a custom search and using that code works in the google control panel (changed links to white), but not in the plugin (links are still blue). i have a dark theme so it's really hard to read.
