Autofill?

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Tue Apr 08, 2014 3:24 pm

I just noticed that the wiki search box now autofills relevant hits. This looks like a real active search fill, not my browser. I like it!

This answers the question in the PM I sent to you.

It appears to be part of the recent update. It is part of the Universal Language Selector.

One drawback of the autofill is it is case sensitive beyond the initial letter. This is also why the Wiki standard for articles is sentence caps so you can enter everything in lower case and always get all articles related.

I am trying to find out if this additional extension will solve the case sensitive issue in our searches.

We now have the TitleKey extension installed. Now the search is insensitive to case.

Actually your PM question is not 100% the same as this one.

The TitleKey extension is only for use in the search field, not Wikilinks.

If you have a Wikilink to a page with:

Random Wiki Page wrote:Waze uses an [[editing rank]] system to determine your ability to change the map.

This works fine to link to the actual page that is titled [[Editing rank]].

However, if there is a page like [[Your Rank and Points]], if you entered [[your rank and points]] it would fail because that page name is different due to the cap change on the second and subsequent words. Only the initial cap can be ignored and still get to the correct page with a Wikilink. In this example you would need to put in the link [[Your Rank and Points|your rank and points]] to get lower case in the sentence displayed to users.
