[Migrated] Search by namespace
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Would it be possible to improve the "wiki text search" facility by adding an option to search by namespace? When searching for phrases such as "July 3", at least 10% of the 1000 pages selected tend to be non-mainspace, for example. Bencherlite 08:37, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

@Bencherlite Can't you just filter namespaces by using the filter?

I know that feature exists, but If I'm looking for all the particular instances of phrase in article space, for instance, wouldn't it be easier to specify that I want only article space instances to start with? Otherwise I hit the 1,000 limit with irrelevant namespaces. E.g. I search for "March 3" and after filtering only 824 - not far off 20% - of the hits are in article space.
