This is the page of the Search Field and Button Creator, which helps you to easily make custom searches, either in the search panel or a separate field, you need to know where to put the %s in the http address string.
And now Super Searches! :)
This will teach you how to do it.
First find what search engine you are going to use. In my example, I’ll use google.
So go to http://www.google.com
And then search for what you want to search, in my example, I’ll choose the word ‘wiki’ then press search and wait for your results.
Now at that point copy the address field and paste it somewhere (Notes panel) here is what the address would look like after inputting my search term.
Remember that word I searched? (which was ‘wiki’)
Now replace that word with ‘%s’
The address should look like this.
Now you are ready for the next step!
In the field which the contents say ‘Insert http address here’ put the modified address in.
And in the field which the contents say ‘Insert field name here’ choose a name you’d like, and click ‘+’ to show the button to drag onto your toolbar, now you have a search field!
Pressing R resets the fields and pressing ( ) clears the buttons previously created.
If you happen to not find the search string there is a bookmarklet that will convert post forms to get forms, look up the custom bookmarklet called frmget
Now when you have that on your personal bar or panel(or toolbar) Go to a page and before you enter a search term(my example is ‘shoust’, press the frmget bookmarklet(this will convert the form) otherwise you’d get this:
Instead of this:
Now search for the keyword you typed in the field (mine was ‘shoust’) and replace it with %s . The code now looks like this:
Now paste that into the ‘Insert http address here’ field and give the field a name, press the + button and drag your field to a toolbar, and there you go!
Tip: Customize your search preferences in google, then press the frmget bookmarklet and search, you then have your preferences in the address!
