  1. It looks to me that none of the plugins works any more. I just installed torrent-search and did some really simple searches, like on “About Time 2013” which I know is on some of the supported sites, and got zero results. Same deal for “Brittany”, which would normally return thousands of hits since there are dozens of porn actresses named Brittany.
