Search field
 
I would like to be able to search Google Scholar, for example, straight from the search field. I am just wondering how I find the correct URL to put in the 'keywords' preference.

Google has the following URL: [url]http://www.google.com/search?ie=utf8&oe=utf8&q=%@[/url]

But I cannot figure out what to place before the %@ for other sites such as Google Scholar.

Any advice on how to find these parameters?

Go to the [URL="http://scholar.google.com/"]Google Scholar[/URL] page, right-click on the text field, and select "Add Search Shortcut…" from the contextual menu. Choose a name and keyword shortcut (if desired), and you'll be all set.

Hope this helps!
