In T249363 we moved the search bar to the top of the page to allow for better discoverability. We would like to deploy and test this change on our early adopter wikis
We would like to do two A/B test on the changes planned to the search widget as a part of the desktop improvements project:
Moving the search bar to the header of the page (target 2.5% overall increase in search sessions initiated, monitor and report on search sessions completed)
Switching the current search widget to the new search widget (target 2.5% overall increase in search sessions initiated, monitor and report on search sessions completed)
Individual test will be performed per wiki for logged-in user only (nice to have: all users)
This tasks covers the a/b test for changing the location of the search widget.
Note: Because the navigation-first DOM reorder (T261802) is tied to the VectorIsSearchInHeader feature flag, it will also go into effect.
- Deploy new location of the search bar to new vector
- Begin A/B test on all early adopter wikis:
- euwiki, frwiki, fawiki, hewiki, ptwikiversity, frwiktionary
- Run test for 2 weeks
- Disable A/B test
