Introducing DuckDuckGo Search bar.

Post#1 by tim » 29 Aug 2017, 05:21


You'll notice under the regular search bar ("GL Forum Search") which uses phpbb forum keyword search,
there's a "DDG Search..." bar (Which stands for DuckDuckGo.com search).
This is new hack/feature i just added tonight.
Using that search bar, it'll open up a new window that does the "site:gimplearn.net" search and the keywords you type
which takes you directly to search results of DuckDuckGo.com.

This is much friendlier I think for people who want to take advantage of the DuckDuckGo.com (just like Google search) that uses relevancy instead of the regular "GL Forum Search"
Also unlike the other regular search bar which has the gear image for advanced GL forum search, it has a DuckDuckGo icon which takes you to DuckDuckGo.com if you wish.
I hope you find this addition search bar useful.
Try it out.

PS. I really like the "site:gimplearn.net " feature but i think having to type site:gimplearn.net every time to do a search is kind'a not fun so that's the real reason why I added this search bar.

Also because the search results will open up in a new window it's considered a pop up and might be prevented by your browser.
You might have to allow popups from gimplearn.net. I am not sure how to do it but i am sure you can just search for how.
When I first did it on Chrome browser. It showed some red x on top on the right hand side i click the red x and it showed me a window allow me to select to allow popups from gimplearn.net or not and i did so from then on everything worked fine.

UPDATED change:
If you type keywords into the 2nd search box, you can do 1 of 2 things as follows:

1. and hit <Enter> or click the magnifying glass next to it:
It'll do a "site:gimplearn.net" + [your keywords] search on DuckDuckGo.com

2. click on the DuckDuckGo logo:
It'lll do a keyword search on DuckDuckGo.com

All of which will open new windows, so you don't have to worry about losing the GL current window.

I have changed my default search thanks to you Tin.
After using google for many years at work I noticed that
more and more useless results were shown, most likely
the result of advertising dollars and not relevant.
They started on the first page only, but over time they
are now found on nearly every page of results from the search.

I also like how duckduckgo you just keep scrolling down to see more results without having to switch pages
