Check usage and version matrix.

CategorySearchSuggestions modifies the search suggestions box to include suggestions from categories and all namespaces registered with $wgContentNamespaces . This is a horrid patch of Niklas Laxström's extension MixedNamespaceSearchSuggestions to include the category namespace.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called CategorySearchSuggestions in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'CategorySearchSuggestions' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
  • Ping me on my talk page. I'm genuinely curious if anybody else cares about this.
