Advanced Go
Type: Patch
Version
Version: n/a
Maturity: unknown
MediaWiki: 1.5.5
Last Updated: 2006-01-12
Description
Adds namespaces to Go search.
MediaWiki extensions

Advanced Go is a patch, applied to SearchEngine.php of MediaWiki 1.5.5. It should not break any existing functionality, and it should be just a tad faster. The patch was created so the admin can add namespaces to the Go search. DO this by adding a global array named $wGoNamespaces in LocalSettings.php. Example:

$wGoNamespaces = array( NS_HELP, NS_USER, NS_PROJECT );

Search OrderEdit

The Go button on the search bar will check these, in order:

  • if exact match found in NS_MAIN
  • if NS_SPECIAL, unconditional match
  • if an IP address, go to Special:Contributions/$IP (I think)
  • if NS_USER, unconditional match
  • Loop and try near matches first in main Namespace, then wGoNamespaces():
    • exact (regretably necessary)
    • lowercase version of name
    • lowercase version of name, beginning of each word capitalized
    • all caps
    • language-specific lowercase-first/upercase-first (depending on wgCapitalLinks)
    • strip quotes (but non-recursively) The patched version did this recurisvely, but it's unclear if it did it correctly
