Custom Searches under the My Links are stored in \AppData\Local\DVD Profiler\CustomSearches.DAT.

I doubt if this file can be directly edited without causes issues with the program.

i was trying to setup a custom search to https://www.findagrave.com website,
they have some great headshots for the older 30`s actors.
and the biography makes it quick to make sure it`s the right person.
but the field is not long enough by around 4 characters

Is it possible to eliminate the "https://"? Some programs will insert that for you automatically. I have not tried it myself - just a suggestion.
Thanks for your support.

Also "www." ???

Or maybe: If you can get the IP address of the site, use xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx instead of https://www.findagrave.com.

Even https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is a bit shorter.

I got 66.43.22.135.  But you might have to override the certificate error if you go that route.

nice idea, but nope it doesn`t work,

this is what i need
www.findagrave.com/php/famous.php?page=gSearch&globalSearchCriteria=

this is the best i can fit,
www.findagrave.com/php/famous.php?page=gSearch&globalSearchCriter

unfortunately it needs the www to open in browser.

ive bodged it with this

www.google.co.uk/search?q=%2Bsite+findagrave.com+

but would prefer it direct into findagrave.

I was trying understand better what you needed, and I was able to do it. What am I missing? (or did I just inadvertently advertise a web site????  )

LOL,

i`m using it in the headshot search so it will add the actors name after,

https://www.findagrave.com/php/famous.php?page=gSearch&globalSearchCriteria=john+wayne

best case is with only name`s listed,

https://www.findagrave.com/php/famous.php?page=gSearch&page=gSearch&globalSearchCriteria=john+wayne

but way too long.

as you see very nice biogs for the actor, and very handy when doing cast on older films.

i try to not use imdb for everything
