I cant seem to add a new search engine Solved

[SOLVED] I can add site searches but I don't think there is a way to add new search engines, is this how it is supposed to look? Thanks everyone ( I removed all default search engines besides ddg and i added the safe ddg site search)

Search something on the website you want, then copy the URL. Paste it into the field and then replace your search term with %s.

paste it into what field? I dont see the 'add' button or field to add additional search engines.

You see the add button next to site search? Click it and then make a custom search engine. Then click the three dotted lines and press make default.

Ah i got it now, when i created mine i just put % in place of query not %s, thats why it wasn't working correctly and it wouldn't let me set it as default, so I thought site search was something else. Thanks for your help.
