Is there some way to get Comment page names from showing up in MW search auto-complete short of disabling search auto-complete since the titles are long and seemingly random string characters? (It does not appear to respect $wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault settings). Our users tend to find these confusing and trigger them randomly while entering other page names.
I understand you mentioned that CommentStreams forces $wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault to be enabled for the comment namespace so that comment text is searchable. So that setting cannot be disabled. (If a search hit is found in a comment, the result is linked to the page that the comment is associated with, not the comment page itself.)
It would be great to:
- Retail the ability to search comments but not have comment page names show in autocomplete.
- Have a config parameter to prevent comments from coming up in search results (for wikis who use comments for purposes where these showing in search results might not be desirable).
