Glad it's working ok now.

I just tried another version after again reading the post above by mindhealer.

I think the "t=lm" is the part that ties the search into the ad-revenue deal.
So ... this version seems to work just the same, and if :?: it gives Linux Mint some revenue, we might as well use it instead:

Code: Select all

<os:Url type="text/html" method="GET" template="https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q={searchTerms} site:forums.linuxmint.com">   
        </os:Url>
        </SearchPlugin>
Anyway, both versions work.
Desktop: C2D E6400 / Asus P5LD2SE / 2GB ram / Asus GeForce 210 / 320GB (WinXP) & 1TB (Mint - various)
Laptop: Asus A53E-SX1455V - i5 2450M / 4GB ram / Intel HD 3000 / 500GB (Win7/Mint 18.3 Cinnamon)
