Dear Avant Browser,
I would like to ask one small question which is how to add more search engines to search bar.
I am waiting for feedback and reply.
Best Regards,
Sherif Ayad

I think in Nederpietos' response, the URL he meant to put was:

Otherwise, typing "d keyword" will take you to your default search engine's results page for "https://duckduckgo.comkeyword" (In my case, since Google is my default, it searched Google for "https://duckduckgo.comkeyword")

To add any search engine you want, you need to find out what their search result URL is and add %s where the search term should be.

To me, the easiest way to do this is to go to the search engine you want to add and do a search for one unique word, like SherifAyad66. So, if your search engine is Google and you search SherifAyad66 and hit enter, the URL in your address bar will be (or possibly Replace the SherifAyad66 with %s and that's what you put in the URL.

Using Nederpietos' example, the same search at DuckDuckGo takes you to the page whose URL is Again, replace the SherifAyad66 with %s and you have the URL you need in Avant.

If you have trouble, post the search engine and someone will surely lend a hand.
