  • open the js folder and edit search.js in a text editor , you'll have to modify the following code
case "-u":
query = query.substr(3);
window.location = "" 
  • first, you have to decide of a website (I will take and a special key for this said site : I will take -b, thus you'll have the following code
case "-b":
query = query.substr(3);
window.location = "" 
  • after that, you'll need to replace the value of window.location, in the example of batoto you'll have to go to the site and search for something, for example if I'm looking for Hinamatsuri (a pretty gud manga, you should read it asap), the link will be, you'll have to copy the link before 'Hinamatsuri', namely, and you'll have the following code
case "-b":
query = query.substr(3);
window.location = ""
