where is customsites in alfred 3?


Recommended Posts

This question explains my problem in detail, but to make a long story short, i want to add custom chrome search engines to alfred.

 

This script shows me how to do it, but refers to this path:

 

'Library/Application Support/Alfred/customsites/customsites.plist'

 

I don't see this path any more in alfred 3.. can someone tell me where it is? thanks!

I haven't checked that script, but looking at the path, it looks like it's for Alfred 1 so won't work in Alfred 3. There may be an updated version for Alfred 3 somewhere though!

 

There are two ways to manually add custom sites in Alfred. You can add them through the UI in Alfred's Features > Web Searches > Search prefs where you simply select "Add Custom Search". Here is a guide to create custom searches:

Alternatively, you can create workflows which give much more control over the results. For a good example of this, see the "Google Suggest" or "Amazon Suggest" workflow examples from the + button in Alfred's workflow preferences.

 

Hope this helps :)

 

Cheers,

Andrew
