[SOLVED] Adding search engine impossible?!



  • Hi there! I'm using frequently the following website: http://www.bibleserver.com/. That's why I'd like to add a search engine, but unfortunately it's impossible. Adding a search engine in Opera Developer works fine. The entry then is added with the follwong syntax: [i]forceMode=&ref=%s&searchOK=OK [/i] Anyone any idea how I can add this custom search in Vivaldi? Thanks in advance! Chipy

    Alt+P
    Section Search
    Add New Search engine
    In URL field put```
    http://www.bibleserver.com/?forceMode=&ref=%s&searchOK=OK

    In Description add _Bibleserver_


  • Hi Gwen-Dragon,

    thank you very much for your fast reply!
    I tried some possible URL combinations, but never thought about adding a ? after the slash.

    Thanks again!
    You made my day!

    Fine.



  • I like the Nickname :) you suggested

    Question - On the same lines, why does right click not show us the option to Add Search Engines for this site, as is also with the chrome play store ?

    God only knows (or the developers). It works OK in Opera 12.17. and Opera 37.

    There is a known, unfixed bug in Vivaldi with recognition of searches on webpages.
    Sorry.



  • I think it is more a Chromium issue as I just verified exact same behavior in Chrome but I'm glad the devs are taking steps to be one up on this issue :)



  • Hey there,

    it's me again, unfortunately, facing again the same issue:
    Today I am trying to add a search engine for http://tip.iatext.ulpgc.es/silabas/. There is a search fild, but unfortunately, when making a right click in that search field, there is no option "Add Search Engine" as it use to appear on other sites with such a search field.

    I checked that in different browsers and have exactly the same issue as in Vivaldi in Chrome and Firefox. In the old Opera (ver. 12.16) and in Opera Developer it is possible to add a search engine for that search filed.

    In both versions of Opera the entries appear automatically:

    → Adress: http://tip.iatext.ulpgc.es/silabas/default.aspx

    and
    → a very, very long Query String: __LASTFOCUS=&__EVENTTARGET=&__EVENTARGUMENT=&__VIEWSTATE=%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%2BPGEgaHJlZj0ic2VwYXJhci1lbi1zaWxhYmFzLWdhdG8uaHRtbD9wYWxhYnJhPXJRbTRZecORaHJRIiB0aXRsZT0iU2lsYWJlYWRvciBUSVAiIHN0eWxlPSJjb2xvcjogIzY5Njk2OTsiPlNlYXJjaCB0aGUgc3RyZXNzZWQgc3lsbGFibGUgb2YgdGhlIHdvcmQgIDxiPmdhdG88L2I%2BIDwvYT48L2xpPjxsaSBzdHlsZT0icGFkZGluZy1ib3R0b206IDVweDsiPjxhIGhyZWY9InNlcGFyYXItZW4tc2lsYWJhcy1tYcOtei5odG1sP3BhbGFicmE9SU%2FDkWzDsThxR0lPIiB0aXRsZT0iU2lsYWJlYWRvciBUSVAiIHN0eWxlPSJjb2xvcjogIzY5Njk2OTsiPlNlYXJjaCB0aGUgZGlwaHRob25nLCB0cmlwaHRob25nIG9yIGhpYXR1cyBpbiB0aGUgd29yZCAgPGI%2BbWHDrXo8L2I%2BIDwvYT48L2xpPjxsaSBzdHlsZT0icGFkZGluZy1ib3R0b206IDVweDsiPjxhIGhyZWY9InNlcGFyYXItZW4tc2lsYWJhcy1QaWNhcmTDrWEuaHRtbD9wYWxhYnJhPU5TZ2TDkWs5T05TIiB0aXRsZT0iU2lsYWJlYWRvciBUSVAiIHN0eWxlPSJjb2xvcjogIzY5Njk2OTsiPlNwbGl0IHRoZSBTcGFuaXNoIHdvcmQgPGI%2BUGljYXJkw61hPC9iPiBpbnRvIHN5bGxhYmxlczwvYT48L2xpPjxsaSBzdHlsZT0icGFkZGluZy1ib3R0b206IDVweDsiPjxhIGhyZWY9InNlcGFyYXItZW4tc2lsYWJhcy1Db2JldGEuaHRtbD9wYWxhYnJhPThEdktjw7FSZzhEIiB0aXRsZT0iU2lsYWJlYWRvciBUSVAiIHN0eWxlPSJjb2xvcjogIzY5Njk2OTsiPlNwbGl0IHRoZSBTcGFuaXNoIHdvcmQgPGI%2BQ29iZXRhPC9iPiBpbnRvIHN5bGxhYmxlczwvYT48L2xpPjxsaSBzdHlsZT0icGFkZGluZy1ib3R0b206IDVweDsiPjxhIGhyZWY9InNlcGFyYXItZW4tc2lsYWJhcy1tYcOtei5odG1sP3BhbGFicmE9SU%2FDkWzDsThxR0lPIiB0aXRsZT0iU2lsYWJlYWRvciBUSVAiIHN0eWxlPSJjb2xvcjogIzY5Njk2OTsiPlNlYXJjaCB0aGUgZGlwaHRob25nLCB0cmlwaHRob25nIG9yIGhpYXR1cyBpbiB0aGUgd29yZCAgPGI%2BbWHDrXo8L2I%2BIDwvYT48L2xpPmQCBQ8PFgIfAwXMAiZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOy4mbmJzcDsuJm5ic3A7LiZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOyZuYnNwOzxhIGhyZWY9Imxpc3RhLXBhbGFicmFzLTUuaHRtbCIgdGl0bGU9IlNpbGFiZWFkb3IgVElQIiBzdHlsZT0iY29sb3I6ICM2OTY5Njk7IGZvbnQtd2VpZ2h0OiBib2xkOyI%2BbmV4dDwvYT4mbmJzcDsmbmJzcDsmbmJzcDsmbmJzcDs8YSBocmVmPSJsaXN0YS1wYWxhYnJhcy0yMTQ3NDgzNjQ3Lmh0bWwiIHRpdGxlPSJTaWxhYmVhZG9yIFRJUCIgc3R5bGU9ImNvbG9yOiAjNjk2OTY5OyBmb250LXdlaWdodDogYm9sZDsiPmxhc3Q8L2E%2BZGQYAQUeX19Db250cm9sc1JlcXVpcmVQb3N0QmFja0tleV9fFgMFC2N0bDAwJGJ0bkVOBQtjdGwwMCRidG5FUwUeY3RsMDAkTWFpbkNvbnRlbnQkSW1hZ2VCdXR0b24xWTRtwf3CYMNVN1z7VZUi3ZdAhg7bZIspP3zXLNVAhU0%3D&__VIEWSTATEGENERATOR=CB6182FD&__EVENTVALIDATION=%2FwEdAA%2Fd%2FnuAPywoZ6wilkDRcXPvHNqjSBNkU583natB%2FqhYlRaXPEjGgr0tbNihQeNrog1CIkkmbRIUMcFKlNGD7LKS2BU7D4zJ3Ymz1LPIAbAGRpQ7Fh3sClP21rOKf8cjvmwm2OzCg4PK75rHGxe41hkysbWRfyLICFqjqR13ypw4m6LUmEHOAhNsIgOAbRzIkhMeu%2Fb7YDDAEOCc5sXS5EgeyIIk7lX0GjxcRijC5rwKkiFpchChcSzuXJPhejNDg4j53d8HLcsMPPSWw23i74K4wcycRn%2Bm1LKiok37o6zL%2Fi6KqsTtzWiK229TcIgvoTlt5EmV1E1lB7VVQ75Aurau1XXRP0ZrkUBJ8dDr9D5npA%3D%3D&ctl00%24MainContent%24TextBox1=%s&ctl00%24btnEN.x=0&ctl00%24btnEN.y=0

    Also the box POST is checked.

    → How can I - maybe using the data from Opera - add a search engine in Chrome and Vivaldi?!

    Thanks in advance!
