Feature Request: Infix search for enhanced search box suggestions
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The attached patch I found here enables infix search for search box suggestions for page names, which is a very nice enhancement and it would be great if this functionality was incorporated into the extension.

It looks like there have been an attempt to introduce this to the extension but was abandoned and no ticket was created for it.

I have just configured SphinxSearch in the following set-up:

MediaWiki 1.27.3
SphinxSearch 0.9.0

and it appears to be working fine.

Hi, thanks for reporting this.
You are very welcome to use developer access to submit the proposed code changes as a Git branch directly into Gerrit which makes it easier to review them quickly and provide feedback.
If you don't want to set up Git/Gerrit, you can also use the Gerrit Patch Uploader. Thanks again!

I am setting up a gerrit review for this now.

This is done in master now, but since master branch currently only works on master branch of MW, i will also merge it back into REL1_33 before closing this.

@svemir: Hi! This task has been assigned to you a while ago. Could you maybe share an update? Do you still realistically plan to work on this task, or do you need any help?

This has been completed back in 2019
