    One thing that new users of Opera Mini
    seem to have trouble with is adding
    custom search engines. Questions about
    adding search engines come up all the time
    on theOpera Mini Forum.  It's easy to
    understand why, the process is not hard
    but it's also not particularly intuitive or
    obvious and neither the officialOpera Mini
    FAQ or the in-app help explain it. To fill the
    gap, I've created this little tutorial with
    images for both the touch screen (left-hand
    images) and non-touch screen (right-hand
    images)versions on Opera Mini 5.  These
    instructions have been tested with Opera
    Mini 5 and 5.1 for Android and Java. I don't
    have a BlackBerry, Windows Mobile device
    or iPhone  but I suspect that the process is
    similar in Opera Mini 5 for those platforms.
    1. Go the the search site you want to add.
    I'm using Bing for this tutorial  so I go to
    bing.com.
    2. Find the search box on the bing.com
    page
    3 a. For touch screen devices, do a long
    press on the search box.  The context menu
    shown above left should appear. Tap "Add
    Search Engine"
    3 b. For non-touch screen phones, position
    the cursor on top of the seach box and
    either press the "1" key or do a long press
    on the OK or select button. The context
    menu shown above right should appear.
    Tap "Add Search Engine"

    4. The next screen (images above) lets you
    edit the name of the search engine before
    adding it.  When you are done editing click
    or tap the button labeled "Add" or "Done".

    Using Custom Search Engines
    To use your new custom  Bing search.
    1. There is a bug in the Java version of
    Opera Mini 5 and 5.1 that prevents you
    from choosing a search engine if the
    "Fullscreen edit" option is enabled.You
    must Fullscreen edit to "Off" in the
    "Advanced" section of the "Settings" menu
    to be able to use custom search engines.
    2. Bring up the search box by going to the
    Opera Mini Start page.
    3 a. On touch screen phones, tap the search
    box and then tap again on the down
    pointing arrow in the right corner  to bring
    up a list of available search engines. Tap
    the one you want to use and then enter
    your search query and press the
    "Search"button.

    3 b. On non-touch screen phones, click the
    search box and then press the phone's
    "Down" key to bring up a list of available
    search engines. Click the one you want to
    use and then enter your search query and
    press the "Search"button.

    Managing Search Engines.
    Any search site that uses a GET search form
    (most do) should  work as a custom
    searche in Opera Mini 5. A few search
    engines don't work because they use
    either a POST search form or a JavaScript
    one.  Here's how to get rid of a non-
    working searches or ones you never use.
    1.  Bring up the list of search engines as if
    you were going to choose one to do a
    search.

    2 a. On touch screen phones, scroll to the
    bottom of the list and tap "Manage Search
    Engines"
    2 b. On non-touch screen phones, highlight
    the search that you want to delete or
    change, then click the soft key labeled
    "Manage".

    To delete a search engine (You can not
    delete the default search - Google in most
    markets)
    On touch screen phones, tap the garbage
    can icon next to the search you want to
    delete.  Then tap it again to confirm.
    On non-touch screen phones, click the
    delete option in the context  menu that
    appears after you click the "Manage"
    softkey.
    To edit a search engine's title or URL.
    On touch screen phones, on the "Manage
    Search Engines" screen, tap the name of the
    search engine that you want to edit, make
    your changes and tap the "Save" button.
    On non-touch screen phones, click the
    "Edit" option in the context  menu that
    appears after you click the "Manage"
    softkey. Make your changes and press the
    "Save" softkey.
    Custom search engines are actually very
    easy to add in Opera Mini one you know
    how. I find them really useful for doing site
    searches of my sites or using specialized
    search engines likeGoogle's mobile website
    search.
    NOTE: yu can use dis tut on all kinds of opera, tested okay.
