Search syntax
=============
Searx allows you to modify the default categories, engines and search language
via the search query.
Prefix ``!``
to set Category/engine
Prefix: ``:``
to set language
Prefix: ``?``
to add engines and categories to the currently selected categories
Abbrevations of the engines and languages are also accepted. Engine/category
modifiers are chainable and inclusive (e.g. with :search:`!it !ddg !wp qwer
<?q=%21it%20%21ddg%20%21wp%20qwer>` search in IT category **and** duckduckgo
**and** wikipedia for ``qwer``).
See the :search:`/preferences page <preferences>` for the list of engines,
categories and languages.
