MobileFrontend search bar dropdown suggestions link directly to pages
Open, Needs TriagePublic


... while the search bar dropdown suggestions normally are links to index.php?search=<search_term>&title=<default search page>

Normally the two are equivalent, as there's code in MW to redirect exact search matches to the matching page. Whether the redirect happens is controlled by a preference that is off-by-default on commons, because on commons the suggestions are gallery pages which typically aren't as good as search results.


Could we get the links in MobileFrontend changed so that they don't lead directly to pages, but instead go via index.php?search=<search_term>&title=<default search page> please?

Our long term plan is to swap out the mobile search for the desktop search but that's probably going to take a while. Is this blocking work your side @Cparle ?
