Special:Search when interwiki link is entered wrongly says that the article does not exist
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Putting an interwiki title in Special:Search, like :pl:Jakub Ćwiek, will show The page "pl:Jakub Cwiek Wikipedia" does not exist. aka (searchmenu-new-nocreate: pl:Jakub Ćwiek, 0) message.
But the blue link in the message points to https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakub_%C4%86wiek, an existing article on plwiki.
So in this case another message should be shown.

Direct link: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=%3Apl%3AJakub+%C4%86wiek&title=Special:Search&profile=default&fulltext=1

This is something a volunteer could probably tackle, tagging it as such.

EBjune moved this task from needs triage to later on... on the Discovery-Search board.

This is all handled in SpecialSearch::showCreateLink. It likely needs a little special handling to notice interwiki links

This is something a volunteer could probably tackle, tagging it as such.

Beuh, practically everything in the WM movement can be done by volunteers :)

Beuh, practically everything in the WM movement can be done by volunteers :)

@Framawiki from the search platform team perspective, this is a UI issue that needs to handle results differently on the front end, and our team doesn't do front-end work, but a lot of volunteers are comfortable in that realm, so tagging it that way increases the chances of someone picking up the work. We don't tag tickets this way very often, but when we do, it is in the spirit of helping to find someone to do the work. Hope that helps clarify.
