I’ve started using Startpage as my search engine recently. I’m wondering how I can set up an action to search startpage.
I’m not well versed at creating actions as I tend to find what I need already created.
I looked at a lot of search actions and looked at their URL formats but they are all very different so I can’t decipher what to use for startpage.
If anyone can help, that would be much appreciated.
Now, for the obvious question. How did you figure that out?
Well, I …
- Googled what “StartPage” was
- Looked at StartPage’s support documentation for a minute or two. This is available as a link from their home page. It gave me the format of the search URL.
- I used some knowledge of Drafts to work out what to do. Specifically;
- Actions, and even more specifically, the URL action step.
- Drafts Template Tags.
After that, I just created and shared the Draft action, and posted the reply above
I hope you feel superior.
I just followed your instructions and found the URL string. I don’t think I would’ve figured that out.
Thanks again for your help.
