We should improve search.

Potential improvements[edit]

  • Make search user interface suck less
    • phabricator:T103637 – Consider auto-completing of "insource:" and other magic prefixes when using search inputs (perhaps similar to Gerrit)
  • Reactivate cross-wiki search across Wikimedia wikis
    • phabricator:T109957 – Restore cross-wiki (interwiki) search across all public Wikimedia wikis
  • Add regex support to intitle
  • Make search indices more accessible and usable
