Serbian Wikipedia search offers to create existing articles
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Serbian Wikipedia search offers to create existing articles, if search term alphabet is different than the existing article title alphabet. Example:

The search should be aware of the converttitles feature and not offer to create an article if an article already exists and could be reached through converttitles. This is probably applicable to all the wikipedias that are using multiple scripts (f.e. Chinese).

Event Timeline

Wikimedia sites do not use MediaWiki's default search backend (MediaWiki-Search), hence setting CirrusSearch.

I believe this problem is independent of the search backend, so I returned it, hope that's OK.
