I've added the new scroogle search engine, but would like to perform searches from the URL bar using a keyword autosearch. How do I include the new search engine and it's keyword as a custom option? Much thanks for helping a newbie.

Simply go to (Tools > Search > Keyword Autosearch...) and click Custom. Place the following string into the box that prompts you for a search string:

You can do the same with any search engine... simply take the URL which is specified as the $eng variable. For example, in the scroogle search macro, you would use the following underlined part of the search macro:
&OldSearch; $search = "Scroogle";
$eng = "";]";

Thanks, it worked.

Under Edit-->Advanced Preferences-->
then under the Category-->Browsing-->Finding Websites
on the -Search Engines- tab I clicked the -Add...- button and entered

Caption : Scroogle
URL : h**p://

Then I went back two tabs to -Web Search- and chose Scroogle

Use this search string:

l=es -> language spanish

But this string not work with normal search engines because in K-Meleon search all Searched words are added at the end of search string, but in this string change order to word searched not work:


You have created a new independent search item in menu to can search with language support and in macro code add searched word like first parameter.

You can add a search that uses desga2 idea.

Du kannst nach desga2 Erklärung ein neue Suche anlegen.

F2 Finden von ... Tab, Websuche, Knopf: Eintrag hinzufügen.
