How to add “Search in site” as a search engine

Tip bulb

You can add a “Search in site” option in your search engine list by following the directions below:

  1. From the Tools menu, click Maxthon setup center
  2. Open the Search page from the sidebar on the left
  3. Add a new search engine by clicking the Add Item link, type anything in the title and the alias fields, but in the URL field add:
  4. javascript:var root=location.hostname;var URL=""+root+"+%us";location.href=URL;

  5. Save your settings, the new search engine would appear in the search bar menu.
  6. Now you can type anything in your search bar, select this search engine, and the currently opened site will be searched for your keyword in Google.

As you see, the URL field can handle javascript, making complex search engines strings possible, you can extend it as you like of course.
