Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Categories/Case insensitive category search

  • Problem: When adding or editing content categories for an article using Visual Editor, the search is case sensitive. It is also sensitive to spellings from different dialects, e.g. Non-profit organizations vs. Non-profit organisations. This makes it hard to find and discover existing categories, especially when it comes to improving categorisation and adding categories to pages without any.
  • Who would benefit: All editors.
  • Proposed solution: Make the category selection search query case and dialect insensitive.
