So I pulled together this little bit of form code:

All you need to do is change “example.com” to your domain and drop the code in a text widget. Like this:

Easy, right? Now nothing is stopping you from using DuckDuckGo as your WordPress site’s search engine!

  1. As a small hint from DuckDuckGo: we also accept the get parameter &sites= (sadly it still just accept one sitename :) )

    Example: http://duckduckgo.com/?q=test&sites=duckduckgo.com

  2. Sweet. It makes me wish I could either host my blog myself since I can’t edit the code on my WP.com blog. Thanks for the info.
