Typing chrome://settings/searchEngines into search bar

Typing the above into my browser bar brings up only a blank page!  Could you clarify the procedure?  Thanks.

I had this question after viewing Adding an Experts Exchange site search to the Chrome browser.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Which browser are you working in?

That tutorial is only for the Chrome browser. Lucas also did a tutorial for adding a custom site search in Firefox which has a different set of steps.

I see. Android doesn't allow you to add additional search engines to their chrome browser.

As a workaround, I managed to make this a little easier on my own phone by adding a bookmark:

1. Go to the URL: https://www.google.com/#q=site:experts-exchange.com 
2. Select the "more" option next to your URL field
3. Select the star icon
4. Name your search (I picked "Experts Exchange Site Search") and Save

Running this bookmark will then pre-populate the site parameter for you and you can add the rest of your query. It should speed things up at least a little bit on a touch keyboard. :)

Hi.  I starred and saved the search.  It takes me to experts-exchange.com where I can search but still have to log in before I can post a question.  Using Chrome in Windows 10, I find that the custom site search doesn't work when I enter ee as suggested by the author.  Not sure why.

You'll want to run the search, add your query and then re-run while your still on the google search result page, instead of clicking on the EE link.

For instance:
1. Run the bookmark
2. Click the search field
3. Add your query  after "site:experts-exchange.com" (based on Lucas's example this would look like "site:experts-exchange.com mod_rewrite" )
4. Run your search

This should give you results on a Google SERP.
