Sister projects search results
In September of last year the Discovery Search team reached out to this community to discuss early work on showing other Wikimedia projects in the search results. The team will soon be ready to put final code updates on the most recent A/B test and make this change happen in production. This update will only add search result snippets from the Wikimedia sister projects in a sidebar to be displayed on the search results page. The release date is expected to be near the end of April 2017 on all Wikipedias.
Further testing is described at Cross-wiki Search Result Improvements/Testing. If you want to test these results in advance, directions for self-guided testing are available. Additional information on this work can be found at Cross-wiki Search Result Improvements. We are excited to bring what is one of the more substantial changes to search to Wikipedia and appreciate your feedback.
