@Ricordisamoa: I'm fine with it if will be accepted and implemented. Just in case that suggestion will be rejected for some reason, anyway we'll need such a feature, so this ticket can be kept open meanwhile, I think.

There already exists a gadget for searching, perhaps it could be improved to include the desired feature.

Upd.: actually they are unrelated - the existing one is for searching items directly by their sitelinks.

XXN assigned this task to Ladsgroup.
