Search bar with gear toggle

  • Problem: There is no way to quickly configure different search results, with the toggle settings you can see a variety of results in the shortest time With this button, you can add a variety of suggested settings to the search bar to find the article or topic in the shortest time.
  • Proposed solution: Add a gear toggle to the Wikipedia search bar
  • Who would benefit: Readers, users, editors, and all people will benefit

@Xaosflux and TheDJ: I meant that when you type words in the search bar (of course I mean in the new search bar, which is not yet embedded in all Wikipedias and other wiki, {For example, you can try the new search bar on the French Wikipedia page}) the results are displayed in a certain order; The toggle tool, for example, makes it possible to arrange the preview of articles quickly, in fact the goal is to add much more useful features in the form of a small button next to the search bar (a useful part of the advanced search tool in it), In addition, the advanced search page has its proper use in its place, the goal is to facilitate the search based on the desired layout and simple and practical tools for the small menu at the top of each wiki page. It will take more time if we want to go to the advanced search page for simple searches (Remember that the overall purpose of this offer is to facilitate and speed up the search)
