SearchExtraNS is an extension to improve search results.

Called after a search has no match for the exact result, but before any case variant is tested, it tries to find a direct match in extra specified namespaces, that is the namespace mentioned as prefix of the keyword. A side-effect is that the advanced search will no longer restrict results to the namespaces you select, but will always be extended to such namespace too.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and extract the tarball in your extensions/ folder. It should generate a new folder called SearchExtraNS directly inside your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/SearchExtraNS/SearchExtraNS.php";
  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
