Search box autocomplete (suggestion) should work for all namespace

  • Problem: For example, if you type "Wikidata:Project ch" it should suggest the Wikidata page (not item) for Project chat. Currently the SearchAll gadget is used as a workaround.
  • Proposed solution: Ideally, get rid of Wikidata overriding the whole search box, and instead make it run standard API request and have small(er) pluggable Wikidata part than runs the second request.
  • Who would benefit:
  • More comments: This is first raised in 2013.
  • Phabricator tickets: phab:T190454; see also phab:T194968 (also need considering)
