instructions for manually adding ddg to Opera are faulty imo

Hej,

Following these instructions here : https://duck.co/help/desktop/opera for my Opera 12.15 browser did not have the wanted result.
Adding the q=%s into the Address field resulted in ddg always adding the q= to the searchterms, so searching for something like q=searchterm1+searchterm2, wich always gave meaningless results.

Instead putting
Address : ht*p://duckduckgo.com/
checking Use POST
Query String : q=%s
has the wanted result.

Yes, I am using an old version of Opera, but the search field configuration seems to look "same-ish" to me on newer Opera versions, so it may be the same for those users. That would be for one of those users to confirm or rebut this.

So, maybe test yourselves and consider updating that helpfile ?

so long … snork

PS - thanks for offering a search that understands boolean. thanks!

Sounds like you missed the '?' in https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%s

Is that not the case?
