Bookmarklet changes

I recently noticed that DDG has changed the way they store customised search settings through Cloud Save. I have my web browser set to delete cookies when I close it therefore I use the bookmarklet to keep my settings persistent. But recently, I have found that my cloud save bookmarklet no longer works and I have to resort to URL parameters. This is not an adequate replacement as this means that my changes do not sync to other devices using the bookmarklet and it does not save my font choice! Any idea on how to fix this?

Thank you for posting this, it looks like it's not respecting the 'key' url param anymore. I'm working on a fix for this now, will let you know when it's done.

This should be fixed now if you want to try again?

Yeah, it's functioning correctly now.
However, it is still absent from the settings page, meaning people who have not already configured Cloud Save will be unable to find the parameter they must use for the URL.

You are correct, was an oversight. I just added it, should be live on the site momentarily :)
