Additional search result link/button

Using the old Yahoo Search extension we were able to create our own classes in order to style a button or trigger that served as an additional link to a search result. Much like the gray buttons on WebAssist's search results page. Can this be easily done with the Bing extension or would one have to modify the associated javascript file to create a html hook on the fly? Although, I see modifying the javascript file is unauthorized according to WA copyright standards.

Also, do we still have the ability to highlight keywords that appear in the search result description? My first impression is that this extension is more limited out of the box, although I'm really glad a replacement to Yahoo Boss has been released.

Let me know if I'm missing something. Thanks.

That's a good question - I would like to know about this too.

It would require modifying the javascript to accomplish this.

the Bing API does not easily expose some of the same features of the BOSS Api.

I was able to modify the javascript to include ‘visit page’ buttons to correspond to each search result. Small mod to the for loop starting on line 165 seamed to do the trick.
