Creating a site specific Search box in a Write.Freely blog - possible, with DuckDuckGo


I found out a way to create a Site specific search which can be used in our Write.freely blogs. (had posted a topic here a month ago, about using Google’s Custom Search Engine – which cannot work for us as it requires JavaScript, not supported in standard WF instances).

DuckDuckGo has this - and it is all inside an iFrame block, which does work from a normal WF page. I have tested it and it’s even better than the Google one as we are not logging into their voracious indexing of everyone’s behaviours.

Details are here :

And I made a Test page which can search my own blog pages at - here :

…with two possible iFrame sources. One will open the search results within the same tab; the second example will open a new tab and display the results there. Source :

<iframe src=";site=;prefill=Enter search keyword..." style="overflow:hidden;margin:0;padding:0;width:320px;height:40px;" frameborder="0" ></iframe>

Or use this one, opens search results in a new tab :

<iframe src=";site=;prefill=Enter search keyword...&kn=1" style="overflow:hidden;margin:0;padding:0;width:500px;height:40px;" frameborder="0"></iframe>

The ‘width’ in the source could be edited to suit your own site, style. I plan to make a Blog page about this as well.

Thank you to Team for the excellent service.
