Search plug-in / site with marker and layer change?

I’m looking for a search plug-in (for firefox) /site on which:

  • the result is shown with a marker

  • I can set my own marker and a link to it

  • I can change the layer (and link to it)

So far I have used, but its not possible to change the layer there and it has also no own marker or “send link” functionality. On you have the marker and the shortlink service, but no search and layer change options.
This is very unsatisfying! :frowning:

The search from the main site, would be a compromise but I don’t know how to add it to my plugins, this how it currently looks (from mycroft):

<SearchPlugin xmlns="" xmlns:os="">
<os:Description>Search a place on with namefinder</os:Description>

Any help / other sides are appreciated. Thanks

(PS: the firefox add-on is no solution.)

Nothing, really? :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:

when you do not get any hints here, try to ask at one of the mailing lists related to OSM.

go to and search for “mailing lists” … maybe there are some more experts.

I just saw that the main page does have a search plugin definition (, and shows search results from Nominatim and GeoNames along with the map after it has been added to the browser. It does not show any marker until you click on one of the search results though.
