Bang syntax for the Marvel Wikia uses the wrong search URL.

Currently, if you wanted to search the Marvel Wikia, say for "iron man", typing "!marvelwiki iron man" takes you to this url:

Code:
http://marvel.wikia.com/index.php?search=iron%20man&fulltext=Search


This is incorrect, though. Your search terms appear in the site's search bar, but it does not render search results.

The search URL should look like this:

Code:
http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Search?search=iron+man&fulltext=Search

I looked at the form, but I don't really understand what I'm supposed to put for the {{{s}}} line. Is that where the marvel.wikia.com URL goes?

Thank you for your suggestion!

{{{s}}} should be placed where the keyword goes. The keyword in is what you search for, in case Iron Man.

So the URL would be this:
Code:
http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Search?search={{{s}}}&fulltext=Search


P.S. I am sorry about the confusion. The "New !bang"-page could be phrased better. I will forward the feedback to the rest of the team, asap.
