DuckDuckGo searches not working for me

Hi, I took advantage of Joe’s offer this week and bought this stack. However, it doesn’t seem to work, at least I don’t know what I have done wrong.

I have a list of URL’s to search comma-separated (space after the comma). The full URL (https://www…com etc.). I have tried No Region and United Kingdom (where most sites are) and the search always results in no results found.

What am I missing? I can use the DuckDuckGo site and search and some of the sites I have listed come up.

Not sure, but I just did a quick test and It doesn’t seem to work with multiple URL’s no matter how I enter them.

For example DuckDuckGo returns:
No results found for stack site:weavers.space,joeworkman.net.
But if I change it to a single URL (either one) it works.
@joeworkman?

Thanks. Correct, if I just use one URL it works, so why does it advertise multiple URL’s?

Seems like it’s a bug in DuckDuckGo.

If you look at the syntax cheat sheet from Duck:
https://duckduckgo.com/?q=duckduckgo+syntax+cheat+sheet&ia=cheatsheet&iax=1

Under site search:

duckduckgo site:washingtonpost.com,wsj.com
To use site-search for multiple domains, just separate them with commas.

If I copy and paste their example duckduckgo site:washingtonpost.com,wsj.com into the duck search bar you get the same message:
No results found for duckduckgo site:washingtonpost.com,wsj.com

but I can search for
duckduckgo site:washingtonpost.com
or
duckduckgo site:wsj.com

And both separately return results.

Thanks, I see what you are saying. Let’s hope they sort it out? It would be really useful.

I did fill out a bug on this with DuckDuckGo. I think the more people that file a bug the better chance it will get fixed:

Many thanks, I will do a report.

I just did an experiment:

Using the DuckDuckGo main webpage I searched:
clinic https://www.energyinyoga.com
and the first result up was indeed from the energyinyogawebsite.

Then I searched:
clinic https://www.energyinyoga.com, https://www.buqiinstitute.com
and the first result up was from energyinyoga and the second from buqiinstitute

So the DuckDuckGo site specific search is working, it is the stack that is not.

Any thoughts @joeworkman

That’s not a site-specific search.

That shows search results for what you typed in the search bar. It’s not searching the site but the entire internet.

It I try:
clinic https://www.energyinyoga.com, https://www.buqiinstitute.com
I get:


That’s a bunch of stuff on Clinc and one of your websites.

If I try:
wuxi site:https://www.buqiinstitute.com

I get nothing but the stuff on www.buqiinstitute.com about wuxi.

OK, thanks, I guess I be mis understanding.
