Just Type: Add website searches

by Adam Marks Mon, 16 May 2011 10:38 am EDT

This tip is only for devices running webOS 2.0 and higher

If a website uses the Open Search protocol for searches, you can actually add it to the "Launch and Search" section of Just Type. Whenever you visit a site with this search protocol, a dashboard notification will appear with the name of the site and a message indicating that you can "Tap to add as Search Engine".

If you tap that dashboard, you will be brought to the "Add More Searches" screen within Just Type Preferences, with the website you just visited within the "RECENTLY VISITED SEARCH ENGINES" section.  Just as you would add any other item to your Just Type options, all you need to do is tap on the website to add it to the "Launch & Search" section of Just Type.  

If you dismissed that original notification, don't worry! You can still add the website to Just Type at any point in the future.  All you need to do is follow the directions to Add an item to Just Type by loading up the Just Type Preferences screen and selecting "+ Add More Searches". Scroll down to the bottom of that page to find all your recently viewed websites and as described above, just tap on the site you want to add to Just Type.
