Underscore is rejected by the incategory search parameter
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: folengo

In the search box, incategory:"Irish writers", using a space, works fine while incategory:"Irish_writers" using an underscore, will not give any result.

As a consequence, {{PAGENAMEE}} is obsolete as far as parameter incategory:"" is concerned.

Could you provide a new magic word (call it {{PAGENAMEF}}) that would be both "URL-friendly" and "incategory-search-friendly" ?

Or can you do something so that "Irish_writers" with an underscore can be used after "incategory:" ?

Fixed in r24628. Underscores in category names will now always be converted to spaces.

However, I discourage usage of incategory keyword, it's still not fully functional (as of lucene-search 2.0.2).
e.g. it doesn't work properly if you use categories within templates, like {{stub}} on ..

Thanks, Robert. Do you have any idea when your fix becomes operational on a given Wikipedia ?

Refresh [[Special:Version]] until r24628 will appear. I think it will take about five to ten days to test and update changes.
