Description

Currently it's not possible to search items by values of date statement. See https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Wikidata:Project_chat&oldid=1054523797#A_form_interface_to_run_some_basic_queries,_particularly_people_searches???

Expected:

You may find https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q2484851 by the following search terms:

  • William Dawson 1990
  • William Dawson 1990-05
  • William Dawson 1990-05-02
  • William Dawson haswbstatement:P570=1990
  • William Dawson haswbstatement:P570=1990-05
  • William Dawson haswbstatement:P570=1990-05-02

Optional but nice to have:

  • Search by dmy and mdy format
  • Search using name of month and abbreviation (November, Nov)
  • Search using no leading zero (1990-5-2)
  • Search using alternative seperator (1990.5.2, 1990/5/2)
  • I18n in searchs

Not sure why Discovery-Search was added here - it's up to each team to decide what they want to have on their board, hence removing.

@Bugreporter: Thanks for explaining! Urgh, that should be a code project instead and not some team project which might change, sigh....
