Quicksearch and pictures

Post by e2e4 » Thu Oct 19, 2006 7:52 am

Salut,

how to use the quicksearch with keyword?

I have included into quicksearch the following entry

gg http://images.google.de/images?hl=de&q=

gg flower

doesn't open Images-Google with the result "flower". What's wrong?

Regards, e2e4

Does not work for me, just opened an empty google image search.

gg is already in use as an URL alias. Use different letters or remove that alias from Tools > Avant Browser Options > URL Alias

I did remove this before, so that gg is just used by the search-key. I tried with other keywords too, just opened the empty google image search and not with the searched word (flowers).

Add %s after the q= bit in your string, like this.

Code: Select all
